Groat Cakes from Purity Cook Book

Groat Cakes from Purity Cook Book: Here’s one interesting recipe from the Purity Cook Book, 1932, 1945. I can’t find a dictionary definition for “groat,” other than a small coin in England. In the recipe, groat seems to be another name for cracked wheat.



Of course we have the cookbook. You can see it here:
