Preparation / Directions:
Cream the sugar and fat. Mix in the egg and add the remainder of the ingredients, having desolved the bicarbonate in the milk.
Bake in a greased tin for about 3/4 hour in a moderately hot oven. Gas control, Gas Mark 5 (375F).
3 teacupsful of flour; 1 teacupful of butter; 1 teacupful of sugar; 2 teaspoonful of baking powder; 2 eggs; milk to mix; a little dried fruit.
Rub the butter into the flour, add sugar, baking powder and well beaten eggs and milk if necessary - it must be kept fairly stiff.
This mixture is enough to fill two sandwich tins. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
