Recipes > Desserts > Wafers



  • 4 ounces of butter
  • 1/2 teacup of milk
  • 4 ounces of white sugar
  • 8 ounces of sifted flour
  • yolk of 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoonful of orange-flour water
  • pinch of salt


Dissolve butter in milk; stir together white sugar, sifted flour and the yolk of one egg, adding gradually the butter and milk, orange-flour water and salt; mix it well. Heat the wafer-irons, butter their inner surfaces, put in a tablespoonful of the batter and close the irons immediately; put the irons over the fire, and turn them occasionally, until the wafer is cooked; when the wafers are all cooked roll them on a small round stick, stand them upon a sieve and dry them; serve with ices.
