About the Book

Try out these easy recipes for making Scones, bread, rolls, puddings, pastries, cakes and buns. For example:

PRESERVED GINGER SCONES.

½ lb. flour (one breakfastcup)
1 oz. butter
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
Preserved Ginger
Milk and water to mix

Sift baking powder and salt with flour, rub in butter, mix to a stiff dough, turn out on board, cut in two equal parts, roll out, spread one-half with thinly-cut ginger, place the other half on top, cut in squares, brush over the milk, and bake in quick oven.


YORKSHIRE PUDDING.

1 heaped breakfastcup flour
1 pint milk, good measure
½ teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 tablespoon dripping

Sift flour into a basin, sprinkle salt over it, and make a hole in the middle. Break each egg separately, and stir gradually in, add sufficient milk with wooden spoon until thick batter, then add and mix remainder of milk, and allow the batter to stand for half-an-hour. Place the dripping into a baking dish, make quite hot, and pour in batter; bake slowly for half-hour. A layer of raisins put in bottom of tin before pouring in batter makes a nice raisin Batter Pudding; try this.
