is easy enough to figure out, in traditional
circles differing from contemporary practice only in that the old traditions usually made and fermented their own wine
. But it is difficult to find a recipe for the "cakes" they usually consume; you can find blessings

, and then beat in the eggs
. Fold in the flour
