Beat two eggs together until thoroughly mixed; add one cupful of milk. Put one cupful of flour, sifted twice, into another bowl; add to it gradually the eggs and milk and a little salt; beat until smooth. Put at once into greased hot gem-pans and bake in a moderately quick oven for forty-five minutes. If properly baked, they should swell six times their original bulk, and may be used for breakfast or luncheon, or served with a liquid pudding sauce as a dessert. Iron gem-pans insure better results than those made of lighter metals.

Mix with a pint of flour a piece of butter the size of an egg. Rub well with two teaspoonfuls of cream of tartar in flour. Powder fine one teaspoonful of soda. Add one cupful of cold water, making a stiff batter. Bake on tin for tea. If you prefer baking-powder use two teaspoonfuls of same in place of cream of tartar and soda.
