  • pound plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar (cream can be diluted with sweet milk)
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 - 3 oz sugar
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 eggs
  • Buttermilk to mix (if buttermilk is not available, sour milk or cream may be used)

  • How To Cook:
    1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

    2. Make a well in the center and add the beaten eggs and the buttermilk alternately, to make a fairly thick batter.

    3. Beat well until bubbles rise on the surface.

    4. 'Crempog' are fried on a greased pan the size of a small dinner plate.

    5. As each one is fried on both sides, it is placed on a hot dish, spread generously with butter and kept hot.

    6. When a pile of a dozen or more have been made, they are cut in quarters through the entire pile and served hot for tea, with jam if desired.

    NOTE:
        The same batter mixture, fried in a smaller size, makes Light or Backstone Cakes - these were originally baked on a griddle or bakestone, hence the name.
