Sorghum Cake & Cookies

Sorghum Recipes

David Goforth has provided us with two recipes that originate with his grandmum, who is now over 100 years of age. The recipes use sorghum to create a cake and some wonderful cookies.

Sorghum Syrup Cookies
1 cup sugar
1 cup sorghum syrup
½ cup milk
2 eggs
½ cup shortening
5-6 cups of flour, enough to get a nice consistency
Mix ingredients in a bowl until the flour has incorporated the liquids and is ready to form the cookies.
Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.

Sorghum Syrup Cake
1 cup sorghum syrup
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
2/3 cup shortening
3 cups flour
2/3 cup milk
½ teaspoon ground ginger . . . cinnamon may be substituted
Beat sugar and shortening together. Add syrup, then eggs and beat well. Mix flour and spice. Add to milk and mix until ready to form into a loaf.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

David notes that, he has substituted butter for the shortening to good effect.
