A Delicious Muffin Recipe

From 1922:

Mix one-eight ounce of yeast to a cream with a teaspoonful of sugar, melt 1 oz. butter and 1 gill lukewarm milk, beat up 1 egg and make into a smooth, light dough with ½ lb. flour and a pinch of salt. Cover basin, and set in warm place to rise for 1 ½ hours. Now grease some muffin rings and a girdle; heat girdle, place rings on it, half fill each with the mixture and, when brown on one side, remove rings, turn and brown other side.
