POOR MAN'S FRUIT CAKE
Sift three quarts of flour with six rounding teaspoonfuls of baking powder
and two of salt. Beat, without separating, three eggs. Rub into the flour a
quarter of a pound of butter, or three tablespoonfuls of snowdrift. Add to
the eggs one quart and a half of milk, and stir this into the flour. Mix
quickly and drop by spoonfuls in greased baking pans, and bake fifteen
minutes in a quick oven. Serve at once. These are better and more easily
made than biscuits.
