Yorkshire Pudding

Ingredients

1 cup flour
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
4 eggs
a pinch of salt
oil or meat drippings

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°F. Mix flour, water, and milk thoroughly with a whisk. Add eggs individually, stirring well after each egg has been added. Add salt and stir until the mixture is light and a little bubbly. Prepare a muffin tin by putting half a teaspoon of oil or meat drippings into each of the 12 muffin cups.

Basic Baked Scones

Ingredients

1/3 cup real butter
1 3/4 cup flour
3 tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoons salt
1 egg, beaten
4-6 tablespoons milk

Directions

Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter with pastry blender until it resembles fine crumbs. Combine egg and 4 tablespoons milk. Slowly pour milk and egg mixture into dry mixture, using a fork to combine. If you need the additional 2 tablespoons milk to bring the dough together, add it. Pat the dough into a small circle and cut into 6 or 8 triangles. Brush the top of the scones with a little milk and sprinkle with sugar before baking. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the scones start to brown slightly on top.
