One pound of flour
One large teaspoon of Baking Powder
One teaspoon of Cream of Tartar
One teaspoon of salt
Buttermilk or sour milk
Mix the dry ingredients together and make into a soft dough with the buttermilk, just as soft as can be easily handled.
Turn onto a floured board, turn in the rough edges and roll out gently until a quarter to half an inch thick. (Roll out slightly thinner if you are using a girdle.)
Cut in squares or rounds, bake on a moderately hot girdle or in a fairly hot oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
