When properly made, this is the most delicious of all the griddle cakes, but it has been against it when made from yeast or risen over night that it was difficult to make light and sweet and that disagreeable efïects frequently followed its eating. It is found that by the use of the Royal Baking Powder to raise the batter these objections have been entirely overeóme, and that buckwheat cakes are made a most delicious food, light, sweet tender and perfectly wholesome, that can be eaten by anyone without the slightest digestive inconvenience.
