1/2 pint milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 1/2 lb flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
9 oz butter
1 tablespoon baking powder

4 tablespoons yoghurt, plain

Recipe Directions for Grannie's Rusks

  1. Mix the milk and the lemon juice, and leave for 30 minutes in a warm place to thicken.

  2. Melt butter, and mix in sugar.

  3. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl, and stir in butter mix and thick milk.
