Quire of Paper Pancakes


  • 16 eggs
  • 1 quart of milk
  • 1 nutmeg
  • 1/2 pound of flour
  • 1 pound of melted butter
  • 1 pound of sugar
  • 2 gills of wine


Beat the eggs, add to them the milk, nutmeg, flour, melted butter, sugar, and wine; take care the flour be not in lumps; butter the pan for the first pancake, run them as thin as possible, and when coloured, they are done; do not turn them, but lay them carefully in the dish, sprinkling powdered sugar between each layer; serve them up hot. This quantity will make four dozen pancakes.
