stiff batter, about 2-3/4 cups (almost three cups) of flour sifted

From MRS. M.D. OWINGS, of Washington, Lady Manager.
Orange shortcake is very nice. The only difficulty to overcome in
making this toothsome dish is to get rid of the white fibers which
intersect the pulp of the orange, and this is, after all, a very easy
matter. To prepare the oranges, simply cut them in half, without
peeling, and take out the lobes precisely as when eating an orange
with a spoon. The shortcake is mode like very short, soft biscuit and
baked in a round tin in a quick oven. When it is done, split it,
sprinkle sugar over the prepared oranges, put a layer on the under
crust, replace the upper part, upon which put more of the prepared
oranges and serve at once with cream.

To two pounds of fine flour put about two table-spoonfuls of fresh yest,

mixed with a pint of new milk made warm. Add the yolks of three eggs,

well beat up. Rub into the flour about a quarter of a pound of butter,

with salt to your taste; put it to the fire to rise, as you do bread.

Make it into a cake, and put it on a tin over a chaffing-dish of slow

coals, or on a hot hearth, till you see it rise; then put it into a

quick oven, and, when the upper side is well baked, turn it. When done,

rasp it all over and butter it; the top will take a pound of butter.
