From 1917:
3 ½ cupfuls flour
½ cupful cornstarch
1 teaspoonful soda
2 teaspoonfuls cream of tartar
2 tablespoonfuls corn syrup
2 eggs
2 cupfuls milk
3 tablespoonfuls butter melted
Mix and sift the flour, cornstarch, soda and cream of tartar twice. Beat the eggs until light and add to the milk. Then quickly beat this into the dry ingredients. Add the corn syrup and melted butter; beat thoroughly. Turn into well greased tins and bake in a hot oven.
