This was my Mum's recipe and never failed. We often had them for tea on a Sunday night with lemon juice and sugar, which we thought was a real treat back then.
Mix together 1 1/2 cups flour and 2 teaspoons cream of tartar. Beat together 1 egg and 1/2 cup sugar.
Mix in 1 cup sweet milk, in which 1 teaspoon soda has been dissolved. Add to flour.
Drop in small quantities on a greased girdle.
(This is straight from my Mum's recipe book.)
