Flour, 2 cups, Sugar, 1 cup,

Baking-powder, 2 teaspoons, Egg, 1 (white only), Milk, 1 cup,

Butter, 2 tablespoons, Salt.

Sift the flour, sugar, baking-powder, and a pinch of salt together twice. Take the white of the egg in a cup, and fill the cup with milk. Add to it, 2 tablespoons of soft butter, and then put all together, and stir well, as therein lies the secret of good making.

This cake is as equally well baked in a sheet, or in a loaf, or in layers; and is very cheaply made.
