Orange Roley Poley.

Take 4 sweet oranges; peel and slice them. Then sift 1 pint of flour, 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder, teaspoon salt.  Add to this 2 tablespoons of butter and enough sweet milk to make a soft dough. Put on a floured board, and roll into a long sheet, spread with the sliced oranges and granulated sugar. Roll it and pinch the ends to prevent the juice escaping. Place on a buttered plate and steam 1 hours, set in oven a few minutes to dry. Serve with hard sauce flavored with orange juice.
