(Cakes.) - (The Golden Age Cook Book)

One pint of cream, four heaping tablespoonfuls of granulated sugar, two

eggs, a little cinnamon; beat well together and stir into it enough

flour to roll. Roll out about a quarter of an inch thick, brush over

with white of egg and sift sugar and cinnamon over it, cut into cakes

about a finger long and one inch wide. Bake a delicate brown.

Other Recipes


Mix one cup of sugar, one cup of eggs (about five), and one cup of sour
cream with enough flour to roll. Toss on board, roll out one-fourth inch
thick, spread with a thin layer of butter, fold the dough over, roll and
spread again; repeat three or four times, using altogether three-fourths
pound of brick butter. Then place dough in a bowl, cover, and let stand
on ice to harden. Then roll as thin as possible, strew with one cup of
chopped almonds, sugar and cinnamon, and cut into seven-inch strips.
Roll each strip separately into a roll, cut into squares and strew top
with chopped almonds, sugar and cinnamon. Bake in a hot oven.

in the sugar, and drop in the egg. Mix the yeast and sugar in a basin,
make the milk just tepid, and pour it over the yeast. Strain into the
flour and egg and work into a light dough, divide into two parts. Rub a
little butter over two small tins, and put one cake in each tin. Cover

yeast powder. Bake in muffin-rings.

Other Recipes

Plain Tea Cakes

Mix thoroughly a tea-cup and a half of sugar, half a tea-cup of butter,

stir in a little flour, and half a nutmeg. Dissolve a tea-spoonful of

saleratus in a tea-cup of milk, strain and mix it with the cake--add

flour till stiff enough to roll out--roll it out half an inch thick, cut

it into cakes, bake them on flat buttered tins, in a quick oven. If

baked slow, they will not be good.

Other Recipes

Tea Cakes

Take loaf sugar, finely powdered, and butter, of each a quarter of a

pound, about half a pound of flour, dried before the fire, a

walnut-shellful of caraway seeds, just bruised, and one egg. Work all

together into a paste, adding a spoonful of brandy. Roll the paste out

to the thickness of a half-crown, and cut it with a tea-cup. Flour a

tin, and lay the cakes upon it. Take the white of an egg, well beaten

and frothed, dip a feather in this, and wash them over, and then grate

upon them a little fine sugar. Put them into a slackish oven, till they

are of a very pale brown.

Other Recipes

Dry Tea Cakes

Boil two ounces of butter in a pint of skimmed milk; let it stand till

it is as cold as new milk; then put to it a spoonful of light yest, a

little salt, and as much flour as will make it a stiff paste. Work it as

much, or more, than you would do brown bread; let it lie half an hour to

rise; then roll it into thin cakes; prick them very well quite through,

to prevent their blistering, and bake them on tin plates in a quick

oven. To keep crisp, they must be hung up in the kitchen, or where there

is a constant fire.

Other Recipes

Tea Cakes

One-third of a cup of butter, one cup of sugar, one egg, one cup of

milk, two cups of sifted flour, two level teaspoonfuls of baking powder,

half a teaspoonful of vanilla, and half a cup of currants.
