Richer Pancakes


  • 6 eggs
  • 1 pint of cream
  • 1/4 pound of loaf sugar
  • 1 glass of sherry
  • 1/2 teaspoonful of grated nutmeg
  • flour


Ascertain that the eggs are extremely fresh, beat them well, strain and mix with them the cream, pounded sugar, wine, nutmeg, and as much flour as will make the batter nearly as thick as that for ordinary pancakes. Make the frying-pan hot, wipe it with a clean cloth, pour in sufficient batter to make a thin pancake, and fry it for about 5 minutes. Dish the pancakes piled one above the other, strew sifted sugar between each, and serve.

Time: About 5 minutes.

Sufficient to make 8 pancakes.

Seasonable at any time, but specially served on Shrove Tuesday.
