  Categories: Fruits, Breads, Brunch, Ethnic
       Yield: 8 Servings
  
       4 c  Flour
            Salt
       2 ts Baking powder
     1/2 c  Shortening (or more)
     3/4 pk Currants
            Milk to make soft dough
            Sugar or powdered sugar
  
   Sift together first three ingredients. Cut in shortening as for biscuits.
   Add currants. Stir in enough milk to make a soft dough that can be rolled
   out. On floured board, roll into thin pancakes and cook on hot griddle
   until light brown. Butter and sprinkle with sugar.
   
   This is a recipe from Blodwyn Thorpe, the daughter of Welsh immigrants born
   in Malad City, Idaho in the 1890s. She was the last of 13 children born to
   a pioneer Mormon family. Blodwyn’s daughter, Neva, married Giovani Dominico
   Cambarari, an Italian immigrant, and they are the parents of Katherine
   Francis Cambareri Day, my lovely bride.
   
   This recipe was never written down by Blodwyn, and is somewhat inexact, as
   are most of the recipes we have from the Thorpe side of the family.
