1/2 c currents
1 tsp lemon extract
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 yeast cake
cake flour enough for soft dough
Dissolve yeast in 1/2 c cold water.
Scald milk. When cold, add yeast, half the sugar, and flour enough to make a thin batter. Let rise to twice its bulk.
When light and foamy, add the rest of the ingredients.
Sprinkle a little flour over the currents, stir the soda into the flour, using flour enough to form a stiff dough.
Set again, then roll, cut with a cookie cutter about an inch thick, and let rise again.

Mix in the morning for an evening meal.
When done, brush over the top, while warm, with equal parts milk and molasses.
