  • 1 quart of sifted flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 table-spoonful of brandy
  • 1 grated nutmeg
  • a little salt
  • piece of butter


Beat together the flour, eggs, brandy, nutmeg, salt, and sufficient water to make a thin batter. Melt the butter in a frying-pan, or substitute a little sweet-oil. Pour in a ladleful of the batter, and let it spread into a circular form. When it is slightly brown on one side, turn it carefully on the other. Serve them up with white sugar grated over each.

You may color them pink, by stirring into the mixture some of the juice of a beet-root, which has been boiled and then beaten in a mortar.
