DIRECTIONS

  • Rub the butter and lard into the flour, and add sugar, fruit, lemon rind and spices. Mix with beaten egg and a little milk to a stiff, pastry-like dough.
  • Roll out 1/4" thick, and cut into 2" rounds. Grease the griddle or pan with a little fat and put it on a moderate heat. Cook the cakes about 3 minutes on each side, turning over as they become golden brown and risen. If they brown too quickly, turn the heat down.
  • Sprinkle with a little sugar while still warm. Eat hot or cold. They keep fresh for several days if stored in an air-tight tin.
