Yorkshire Old Wives' Sod

A very old traditional Yorkshire recipe for a kind of thick, textured savory custard. Well worth trying as a supper dish.


5 large eggs
3/4 pint milk
pepper and salt
2 thin oat cakes, lightly toasted, buttered, broken into pieces


- Break the eggs into a basin.
- Beat for 2 minutes.
- Stir in the milk, pepper and salt.
- Pour into a well greased baking tin.
- Sprinkle the broken oat cakes into the mixture.
- Dot with butter.
- Bake in a moderate oven for 20 minutes.

Take time to recharge your batteries. It's hard to see where you're going when your lights are dim.
