Water Pan Cakes, a Cheap Dessert


  • 1 quart of warm water
  • flour
  • 1 tea-spoonful of salaeratus
  • salt
  • 1 tea-cupful of butter-milk or sour cream


Stir the warm water in sufficient flour to make a batter of moderate thickness; dissolve the salaeratus, with a little salt, into the butter-milk or sour cream; beat it well; put a little lard in a frying-pan, and when it is hot, fry them. They are much better to be eaten hot, with sauce, sugar and cream, or any thing you may fancy. This is a very cheap dessert, and has been thought nearly equal to pan cakes made with milk and eggs.
