Recipe for suet cakes (6-10 depending on size)
6oz plain flour
3oz shredded suet
a pinch of salt
1 level teaspoon of baking powder
1 - Make the dough by mixing together the flour, baking powder and salt and rubbing in the suet.
2 - Beat the egg and add the egg and enough milk to make a stiff suet dough.
3 - Roll out the dough on a floured surface to a depth of about quarter of an inch and then cut into rounds using a plain, round cutter. (a cup can also be used), or simply make balls and roll them out.
4 - Melt a little lard in a frying pan and fry the pancakes until golden brown on both sides.
Wipe the pan clean between pancakes to get rid of burnt flour.
Excellent served with golden syrup.
