Flour, 1 pint, Butter, 2 tablespoons, Milk, 1/2 pint,

Egg, 1,

Baking-powder, 1 teaspoon,

Salt, 1/4 teaspoon.

Mix together the flour, baking-powder, and salt while dry. Rub in the butter. Beat up the egg in milk, or in water, then mix all thoroughly together, and bake immediately on a griddle, or in a quick oven.

If milk is not to be had, water may be used; but in case water is used, only 1/2 pint must be taken.
