All measurements are level.

Pastry flour should be used, if possible. Flour must be sifted before it is measured; then mix and sift dry ingredients. Six teaspoons of baking powder will raise 1 qt. of flour.

The eggs are beaten whole and the milk added to them, then added to the dry ingredients. When fat is used, it is usually melted and added last, but may be worked into the flour with the tips of the fingers, or cut in with a knife.

The pans or muffin rings should be greased before the mixture is prepared. Iron gem-pans must be heated.

The oven must be ready for baking before mixtures are prepared; they must be put into the oven as soon as prepared and baked from 12 to 30 m. Bake on the floor of the oven; they may be raised to the shelf to brown.
