Currant Tea Cakes

  • 6 handfuls flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 ounce yeast
  • 4 ounces lard
  • Salt
  • 1 pint milk, warmed
  • Brown sugar
  • Currants
Mix the yeast with a little brown sugar, flour and water. Rub the lard into the flour and when the yeast has risen, stir it in with a little warm milk. Add the currants. Leave it to rise up before the fire and then stir it all together with the rest of the warmed milk. Add to the beaten egg. Knead it well together. Leave it to rise up before the fire again but not too near. Cover with a cloth. When it has risen enough, knead into cakes and let them stand before the fire until they rise. Bake in a oven heated to 350F at 350°F.
