some classics from 1962

i'm at M&D's and thought i'd type up a few of mum's recipes. these ones are from mum's 1962 frypan book, and the pikelet one is the best!

1 cup SR flour
pinch salt
1/4 tspn bicarb soda
2 tab sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup sour milk or fresh with 1 tspn vinegar
dessertspoon butter, melted

sift dry ingredients
add sugar, egg, milk and butter
beat until smooth and thoroughly mixed
place by dessertspoonful into electric frypan heated to 380'F
cook until bubbly and brown underneath
turn to brown

Fritter batter
1 cup SR Flour
1 tspn baking soda
1 egg
1/2 cup milk

sift dry ingredients
add hmmmmm hard to read.... i think it's egg yolk and milk and beat until mixed
add stiffly beaten egg white

note: this makes a fairly stiff batter which is good for moist food as as something i can't read LOL so i assume you can add more milk to batter dryer foods. we use to use this one for leftover roast meat, serve with homemade relishes or chutneys, or tomato sauce.

cut foods to required size
dip in batter and shake off excess
fry in electric frypan heated to 400'F. i can't read it but you would need to put butter or oil in to fry in
turn when brown underneath
