Recipe: Tomatoes in Batter

  •  4 fresh tomatoes.
  •  2 eggs.
  •  2 teaspoons flour.
  •  ½ pint milk.
  •  1 ounce butter.
  •  1 teaspoon salt.
  •  ½ teaspoon pepper.

Scald and peel the tomatoes, and cut them in half (as one would split open a tea cake), and lay them cut side upwards in a baking tin which has been well greased with half an ounce of butter, sprinkle over them the pepper and salt, and place a small knob of butter on each half, pour in the batter, and bake in a hot oven for half an hour.
