Abraham Lincoln's cadaverous visage is as recognizably American as The Statue of Liberty and our Stars and Stripes.

That's why this hysterical recipe from an 1860's cookbook made me fall over laughing. The new political party sure hit the ground running with Abraham Lincoln. The two were synonymous, his was the face of Republican politics of the day. BUT someone forgot to feed him.

It's short, easy recipe and what strikes you is all those carbs 'n fat. Wonder what the Lincoln penny would have looked like if Lincoln ate it?

So it's a joke that one had anything to do with the other, who knows why on earth this recipe is called " Republican Pudding " ? I just made that up BUT it's pretty darn funny.
