The Hidden Mountain

A pretty supper dish.


  • 6 eggs
  • a few slices of citron
  • sugar to taste
  • 1/4 pint of cream
  • a layer of any kind of jam


Beat the whites and yolks of the eggs separately; then mix them and beat well again, adding a few thin slices of citron, the cream, and sufficient pounded sugar to sweeten it nicely. When the mixture is well beaten, put it into a buttered pan, and fry the same as a pancake; but it should be three times the thickness of an ordinary pancake. Cover it with jam, and garnish with slices of citron and holly-leaves. This dish is served cold.

Time: About 10 minutes to fry the mixture.

Sufficient for 3 or 4 persons.

Seasonable at any time.
