Cold Water Willies


Dough of white flour, salt and cold water only, baked.

Described as "made with flour and salt and just sufficient water to blend them into a pliable dough. They were just dusted lightly with flour, flattened out a little and baked in a moderate oven. In the districts where these were made in the old hard times, there was a jibe which described these cakes as "Tough Cake and Pullit," and that is exactly what they were; they had to be pulled to pieces."

Known from Receipts and Relishes. Being a Vade Mecum for the Epicure in the British Isles in the Whitbread Library series and from Riley’s Gastronomic Guide to the British Isles, both of about 1950.
