Aunt Annie’s “Economy Cake”

Another quick and easy cake from my Great Aunt Annie’s recipes.  Note that the currants are rolled in flour after being washed, then added.  The flour keeps them from sinking to the bottom of the batter.


One coffee cup of sugar, one teaspoon of salt, butter about the size of an egg, one egg, not beaten, one cup of sweet milk, one and a half cups of flour with one teaspoonful of baking powder sifted in; any flavoring or extract to taste.  One cup of dried currants, washed and floured, are an improvement, but requires a little more sugar.
