This is adapted from Crescent Dragonwagon's Cornbread Gospels. Dragonwagon cites Nelly Custis, Martha Washington's youngest granddaughter, gave an account of the first president's morning routine, which included getting up before sunrise, reading and writing until 7 a.m. in the summer, 7:30 a.m. in the winter, and then breakfasting on three of these cakes, "swimming in butter and honey."
