    2       c            Sifted cake flour
    2       tb           Double-acting baking powder
      1/2   ts           Salt

   Add lemon rind and finely cut figs.  Combine
   well-beaten egg yolks with milk and melted shortening.
   Mix lightly into dry ingredients, then fold in stiffly

   golden brown. Serve with lots of butter and warm maple
   syrup to which cut figs have been added.
