Plain Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound or 1 pint of flour
  • 7 eggs
  • 1 quart of rich milk

Instructions

Sift the flour. Beat the eggs very light, and stir them gradually into the rich milk. Then add by degrees the flour, so as to make a thin batter. Mix it very smooth, pressing out all the lumps with the back of a spoon. Set the frying-pan over the fire, and when it is hot, grease it with a spoonful of lard. Then put in a ladle full of the batter, and fry it of a light brown, turning it with care to prevent its breaking. Make each pancake large enough to cover the bottom of a dessert plate; greasing the pan every time. Send them to table hot, accompanied by powdered sugar and nutmeg mixed in a small glass bowl. Have wine with them also.
