Baking Powder Rusk

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons cold lard
  • 2 well beaten eggs
  • 2 cups sweet milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg extract
  • Fine white sugar
Sift 2 tablespoons sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1 tablespoon baking powder into 3 cups flour, and then rub in 2 tablespoons cold lard; add 2 well-beaten eggs, 2 cups sweet milk, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon nutmeg extract; mix into a dough soft enough to handle, and turn out on the molding board; turn quickly a couple of times to smooth it, break off pieces about the size of an egg, roll into small balls with the hand, and lay close together in a well greased baking tin. Wash over the top, to glaze it, with a small amount of milk and melted butter mixed; bake 1/2 hour in a oven heated to 350F. Sift fine white sugar on top when cold.
