Griddle Cakes

Into a tablespoonful of butter rub a tablespoonful of powdered sugar, add a pint of milk and two eggs beaten very light. Into a pint of flour stir a teaspoonful of baking powder and one of salt and sift all together several times. Add this prepared flour gradually to the egg and milk mixture, beat until there are no lumps in the batter, then pour upon a heated griddle just enough of the batter to make cakes of the desired size. Take care always in mixing griddle cakes not to get the batter too stiff.
