To fry Cream to eat hot


  • 1 pint of cream
  • 3 spoonfuls of London flour
  • 3 eggs
  • a little salt
  • 1 or 2 spoonfuls of fine powder sugar
  • 2 eggs


Take the cream and boil it, the flour, mix'd with a little milk, put in the eggs, and beat them very well with the flour, the salt, and powder sugar, mix them very well; then put your cream to them on the fire and boil it; then beat the eggs more very well, and when you take your pan off the fire stir them in, and pour them into a large pewter dish, about half an inch thick; when it is quite cold cut it out in square bits, and fry it in butter, a light brown; as you fry them set them before the fire to keep hot and crisp, so dish them up with a little white wine, butter and sugar for your sauce, in a china cup, set it in the midst, and grate over some loaf sugar.
