Pancakes. No. 1


  • 1 quart of milk
  • flour
  • 6 eggs
  • a little salt
  • 1 glass of raisin wine
  • 1 spoonful of beaten ginger
  • sugar


Mix the milk with as much flour as will make it into a thin batter; break in the eggs; put in the salt, raisin wine, beaten ginger; mix all well together; fry and sprinkle them with sugar.

In making pancakes or fritters, always make your batter an hour before you begin frying, that the flour may have time to mix thoroughly. Never fry them till they are wanted, or they will eat flat and insipid. Add a little lemon-juice or peel.
