Taste from the past – Pancakes – the way they were made in 1879

Taste from the past

Pancake recipe from 1879 newspaper

Take three eggs and stir them into a pint of milk; add a good pinch of salt and enough prepared flour to make it into a thick, smooth batter.

Fry in boiling fat till nearly done; roll over on the other side; drain, and serve very hot with lemon and powdered loaf-sugar.

The feat of tossing the pancakes in the pan requires dexterity; but is not difficult if the batter is very light.
