Required : One pound of flour. About one and a half gills of milk. Two rounded teaspoonfuls of baking-powder. One teaspoonful of salt.

Sieve together the flour, salt, and baking-powder. Mix them with the milk to as soft a dough as possible without it being actually sticky. Do this very quickly, and knead it lightly together. Divide it in four, and shape each into a neat little loaf - a cottage loaf is the most usual shape. Put the loaves on a floured tin, put them at once into a quick oven, and bake them for about twenty minutes. Brush them over with a little warm milk to give them a shiny appearance.

N.B. - The quicker this bread is handled after adding the liquid the better it will be. It is very useful in places were yeast is hard to get. Cost, 3d.
