      Our German sources provide recipes for several bread based dishes. These
      variations on Mortar Cakes, with and without chicken, turn up in
      Kochbuch aus dem Archiv des Deutschen Ordens is a late 15th century
      cookbook found in East Prussia although it likely belongs to a central
      or south German background.. English translation by Giano Balestriere.
      Available on Stefan's Florilegium.

      If you want to make a good mortar cake
      Cut white bread into dice, break eggs into pieces and put the bread into
      it. Cut nutmeg and mace into it and make it yellow (with saffron). Cut
      fried chicken into it, though you may also use livers or stomachs or
      feet. Place it on the embers, pour the filling into it, let it bake and
      serve it forth.

      If you want to make mortar cake
      Grind white bread finely, beat eggs into it, make it yellow (with
      saffron), season it well and cut nutmeg and mace into it. Put lard in a
      mortar, put it in the embers and pour it in there. When it is baked, cut
      it in slices.

      The colris shows up in three versions in Das Buch von guter spise, a
      literal translation of Daz buoch von guoter spise dated between 1345 and
      1354, English Translation by Alia Atlas. My experiments with this
      recipe have shown that the nature of the finished dish depends a great
      deal on the character of the bread used. A sharp sourdough will give
      you a flavor more like Mac and cheese where as a sweeter bread brings
      more of a bread pudding vibe to the finished dish.

      65. Ein cöl ris (A colris)
      A colris baked. And make of eggs thin sheets and cut them
      small and throw them in sweet milk. And take semmel bread. And cut that
      diced therein. And mix with egg yolks. And boil it well. And add a fat
      on top and do not oversalt.

      66. Ein col ris (A colris)
      But a colris. Take eggs and mix them with semmel meal. And
      mix those thin cakes thrown in a milk. And well stirred until it boils.
      And mix but with egg yolks and add a fat therein and give out

      67. Aber ein col rys (But a colris)
      But a colris. Take thin cakes baked of eggs. And cut them diced.
      And cut as much Semmel thereto diced. And put in a milk. And take an
      apple and cut it diced therein. And urge it well with egg yolks. And let
      it boil well. And give it out.
