Recipe: Baked Batter

  •  3 ounces flour.
  •  2 eggs.
  •  ½ pint milk.
  •  1 ounce butter.
  •  A pinch of salt.

Place the flour and salt in a basin, beat up the eggs in another basin; add half the butter to the milk, and place in the oven for a few minutes to allow the butter to dissolve, then add the milk to the eggs and pour on to the flour, stir briskly with a wooden spoon, grease a baking tin or dish with the remainder of the butter, pour in the batter, and bake in a rather hot oven for half an hour.
