cold and there are few lumps remaining; then put to it two spoonfuls of

yest and two of white powdered sugar, and stir it well. Put it in a

large bowl not far from the fire, and next morning you will find it

risen and light. Put it all to your flour, which must be mixed with as

much warm milk and water as is necessary to make it into dough, and put

it to rise in the common way.

through a colander; add half a pound of fine flour, and thin it with

cold water till it is like a thick batter. Add three table-spoonfuls of

good yest; let it stand for an hour, and make your bread.
