One cup of sugar
One tablespoonful of cold Butter
half a cup of Milk
One and one-half cups of flour
One teaspoonful of cream of tartar
Half a teaspoonful of baking
A nice plain Cake--to be eaten while it is fresh.
Combine all ingredients and bake at 350 degrees until done.
A spoonful of dried Apple Sauce or of Peach Sauce, a spoonful of Jelly, the same of Lemon extract, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Cloves and spice--ground--or half a cupful of Raisins might be added for a change.
