To make Brain-cakes


  • handful of bread-crumbs
  • shred lemon-peel
  • pepper
  • salt
  • nutmeg
  • sweet-marjorum
  • parsley
  • yolks of 3 eggs
  • brains


Take the bread-crumbs, a little shred lemon-peel, pepper, salt, nutmeg, sweet-marjorum, parsley shred fine, and the yolks; take the brains and skin them, boil and chop them small, so mix them all together; take a little butter in your pan when you fry them, and drop them in as you do fritters, and if they run in your pan put in a handful more of bread-crumbs.
