11/3 cups flour 1/3 cup sugar
21/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 cup milk 1/4 teaspoons salt 1 egg
1 teaspoon melted butter
Beat egg until light; add milk, dry ingredients mixed and sifted, and melted butter. Drop by spoonfuls in hot, new, deep fat; fry until light brown and cooked through, which must at first be determined by piercing with a skewer, or breaking apart. Remove with a skimmer, and drain on brown paper.
