Baking Powder Griddle Cakes

2 cupfuls sweet milk butter, size of egg

2 eggs 1/2 teaspoonful salt flour 2 teaspoonfuls baking powder

1 teaspoonful sugar

Add the beaten egg to the milk, stir in the salt, sugar and softened butter, and sift in the flour in which the baking powder has been mixed. Use enough flour to make a batter like that of cake.

Corn meal with part flour, buckwheat or graham flour, may be substituted.

In berry season, huckleberries, blueberries or raspberries added to the above griddle cake batter, are delicious.

Cold boiled rice and left over cereals may be stirred in almost any recipe for griddle cakes.

A little vinegar added to the sour milk batter of griddle cakes just before frying, is good.
