Raised Flour Muffins Or Sally Lunns (With Yeast)

1 cup milk, scalded and cooled. teaspoonful salt, scant. 1 teaspoonful sugar. cup yeast.

1 egg, yolk and white beaten separately.

Flour enough to make a drop batter.

If intended for tea, add two tablespoonfuls of sugar, and mix late in the forenoon. They will rise in five or six hours; then add one large tablespoonful of butter melted. When well mixed, fill muffin pans two thirds full. Let them rise fifteen or twenty minutes, and bake in a hot oven. Or they may be baked in muffin rings on a griddle, in which case it is better to add the melted butter at the first mixing. When ready to bake, have the griddle and rings well greased; contrive to take up a spoonful of the dough without stirring enough to let out the air, and fill each ring; cook until brown and well risen, then turn ring and muffin together, and brown the other side. Pull them apart, never cut them. This same mixture, when risen and baked in a buttered pudding-dish in which it is to be served, is the old-fashioned Sally Lunn. Cut with the point of a warm knife. If intended for breakfast, make a batter with the milk, yeast, flour, and sugar, mix late in the evening and keep in a cool place. In the morning add the egg, melted butter, and salt, and bake as usual.
