1 cupful of milk
1 and 1/3 cupfuls of sugar
2 teaspoonfuls of cream of tartar
1 teaspoonful of soda
Piece of butter the size of a walnut
1/4 teaspoonful of cinnamon or nutmeg salt
Flour enough to roll soft
Beat the egg and sugar together and add the milk and butter. Stir in the soda and cream of tartar into the flour, dry; mix all together, with the flour and salt. Cut into rings and fry in deep fat. Lay them on brown paper when you take them from the fat.
So that’s the recipe. This is just my measurement and I could be wrong but I used about 4 and half cups of flour
This came from a book called Things Mother Used to Make A Collection of Old Time Recipes, Some Nearly One Hundred Years Old and Never Published Before. I think it was printed in 1913 or 1914.
