Put the meal, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl and pour over them the boiling water. Let stand until the meal swells, then add the cold milk. When the mixture is quite cool stir in the flour and baking powder, mixing well, and lastly, add the eggs, well-beaten, and the melted shortening. Bake on a hot griddle. The cakes should be small, well-browned and thoroughly cooked; they need a little longer cooking than wheat griddle cakes
