Pancakes for Two


  • yolk of 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoonfuls sugar or syrup
  • 1 cupful milk
  • 1 tablespoonful shortening
  • 1 teaspoonful salt
  • 1 teaspoonful vanilla or nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 cupfuls flour
  • 2 level teaspoonfuls baking powder


Place in a bowl. Beat with a Dover egg-beater to thoroughly mix and then fold in the stiffly beaten white of egg. Pour the mixture into a pitcher and then place two tablespoonfuls of shortening in a frying pan. When smoking hot pour in just sufficient batter to cover the bottom of the pan. When it begins to bubble turn the cake over and bake on the other side. Lift and spread lightly with jelly or roll, or use the following mixture:


  • 3 tablespoonfuls butter
  • 1/2 cupful of XXXX sugar
  • 1 tablespoonful lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon boiling water


Cream butter and sugar well, and then add lemon juice and boiling water. Beat to blend.
