1 C. flour
1/2 t. baking powder
1 heaping tsp. sugar
large pinch of salt
1 t. raisins (optional)
1 t. milk powder
2 t. margarine
1 or 2 eggs
Mix dry ingredients together. Add margarine, mixing with fingers
till the consistency of coarse cornmeal. Beat the eggs and add.
Then add just enough water to make a soft dough. Knead it on a
floured plate just long enough to form a nice round circle,
about 1/4" to 1/2" thick. If you've got an extra egg, beat it
and brush it on the dough. Sprinkle some sugar on top. Then cut
the dough into six or eight wedges.
If baking over a campfire, place wedges in a
lightly floured Teflon frying pan, cover with foil or a metal
plate, set on cleared ground and surround with coals. When
golden brown, about 10 to 15 minutes, they're done.
If using a camping oven, use a Teflon pan
with lid or a small baking sheet which can be covered. Same
time. Serve with honey or jam.
Variations: Substitute buttermilk, sourdough starter, or even
heavy cream for the milk powder. Add other dried fruits,
slightly rehydrated. Strawberries and blueberries are great.
