Quire of Paper Pancakes


  • 1 pint of cream
  • 8 eggs, leaving out 2 whites
  • 3 spoonfuls of fine flour
  • 3 spoonfuls of sack
  • 1 spoonful of orange-flower water
  • a little sugar
  • 1 grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 pound of butter melted in the cream


Mix a little of the cream with flour, and so proceed by degrees that it may be smooth: then beat all well together. Butter the pan for the first pancake, and let them run as thin as possible to be whole. When one side is coloured, it is enough; take them carefully out of the pan, lay them as even on each other as possible; and keep them near the fire till they are all fried. The quantity here given makes twenty.
