French Pancakes


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ounces of butter
  • 2 ounces of sifted sugar
  • 2 ounces of flour
  • 1/2 pint of new milk


Beat the eggs thoroughly, and put them into a basin with the butter, which should be beaten to a cream; stir in the sugar and flour, and when these ingredients are well mixed, add the milk; keep stirring and beating the mixture for a few minutes; put it on buttered plates, and bake in a quick oven for 20 minutes. Serve with a cut lemon and sifted sugar, or pile the pancakes high on a dish, with a layer of preserve or marmalade between each.

Time: 20 minutes.

Sufficient for 3 or 4 persons. Seasonable at any time.
