To serve 2 or 3, make half this recipe. A delightful variation is to leave the walnut kernels out of the batter, and sprinkle a teaspoonful on each section of the waffle after pouring into the iron. The walnuts become deliciously crisp and “toasty.”
“War Time Recipes” was a valuable book of tested recipes that fully measure up to the standards of conservation. It was dedicated to the American housewife as an aid in the preparation of hundreds of economical, appetizing foods that would enable her to save without in the least sacrificing either tastefulness or variety in her meals.
Tapioca (/ˌtæpɪˈoʊkə/; Portuguese pronunciation: [tapiˈɔkɐ]) is a starch extracted from cassava root (Manihot esculenta). This species is native to the northeast region of Brazil, but its use spread throughout South America. The plant was carried by Portuguese and Spanish explorers to most of the West Indies and Africa and Asia. It is a tropical, perennial shrub that is less commonly cultivated in temperate climate zones. Cassava thrives better in poor soils than many other food plants.
From the forword
This book contains the best recipes and mixes used in my experience of twenty years as a practical baker, and have been responsible for whatever success I have enjoyed. As a student of baking practice and advisor to many wholesale bakers, as well as smaller establishments and in my own business, I have found opportunity to thoroughly demonstrate their practicability and desirability from a profit and trade building standpoint. I have tried to make the directions and explanatory notes as clear and concise as possible, and hope they will help you to make a better or more varied line of goods. Used with care and good judgment, I hope they will be appreciated by the trade in general. These recipes have been prepared especially for those bakers who desire to build up a better class of trade.

The Cosmopolitan Cook & Recipe Book
Compiled, Edited and Published by
The object of the Cosmopolitan Cook and Recipe Book is
to provide the Public with a cheap but honest and practical
Cook Book, containing Recipes for the preparation of dishes
to suit all tastes and purses.
The compilers of this work have examined a large number
of Cook Books varying in price from one to five dollars, and
while they all contained some good Recipes, still they seemed to
a great extent to be copies of each other, most generally lacked
the details required to successfully produce the dish required,
and frequently seemed to be intended for persons of large
means only—that is, there was no attempt at economy.

In preparing this book for the public our object has been to fill a long-felt want, namely a book to which perplexed and inexperienced housekeepers can go and be sure that they will find therein something to tide them over the emergencies that occur in every household. In compiling the recipes for cooking we have aimed at simplicity and practicability, avoiding, as far as possible, all foreign and ambiguous terms; claiming that, as a rule, American names are good and explicit enough for American cooking.
