Cherry Pancakes


  • 1 pound red cherries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoonful salt
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 pint milk


Remove the pits from the cherries; put the sugar with 1/2 cup water over the fire and boil a few minutes; put in the cherries and boil 3 minutes; remove from fire and set aside to cool; prepare 4 large pancakes as follows: Sift flour and salt together, add the milk, the well beaten yolks of the eggs and mix it into a thin batter; beat the batter for 5 minutes with a wooden spoon or German quill; beat the whites of the eggs to a stiff froth and stir them lightly through the mixture; bake 4 large pancakes from this, lay them on one another, with a layer of the stewed cherries between, dust the top with powdered sugar and serve hot. Or spread over the surface of each pancake a layer of cherries, roll each one up separately, arrange the rolls neatly on a long dish and dust over with powdered sugar; serve while hot. This is a nice dish for dessert.
