 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8       oz           Flour
      1/2   ts           Bicarbonate of soda
      1/2   ts           Cream of tartar
      1/2   ts           Baking powder
    1       oz           Butter
    1       t            Golden syrup
                         Buttermilk, Or
                         Full cream milk OR
                         Sour milk
 
   Tip:- To test for the correct heat of the girdle
   sprinkle it with a little flour. If the flour browns
   at once it is too hot; it should take a few seconds to
   turn colour.
   
   Sift the flour into a bowl. Add the other dry
   ingredients and mix. Rub in the butter. Add the syrup
   and sufficient milk and mix with a palette knife to a
   soft consistency. Turn On to a floured surface and
   roll quickly and lightly (handle as little as posible)
   to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut in rounds. Grease and
   heat the gridle and, with a slice or broad knife, turn
   once until brown on both sides. Serve freshly baked,
   spread with butter.
