2 cups Cornmeal
2 cups 100% Whole Wheat Flour
1 tsp. Salt
2 Tbsp. Baking Powder
4 Tbsp. Sugar
4 Whole Eggs With Shell
2 cups Milk
1/2 cup oil
Combine dry ingredients and add wet ingredients. Do not overbeat. Bake in greased 10 inch pan for approximately 35 minutes. Cool and process in food processor. This will grind up egg shell and get it ready to add to nestling food.
Whatever bread or cake etc. is leftover is processed in the food processor and fed either in a separate dish or mixed in the nestling food. Recently my daughter Kellie, made a strawberry sponge cake complete with icing and fresh raw strawberries on top (since she made it for me, it was splenda instead of sugar).
At least a half cake was left over so after a couple of days, I put the cake, frosting, raw strawberries in the food processor. It was too wet when I processed it so I added dry cornmeal till it was a crumbly moist consistency. It smelled so good that I offered it in a separate dish and the birds quickly cleaned up every bite!
