  • About


  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • ½ oz. compressed yeast (1 cake) dissolved in a little lukewarm milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup lukewarm milk
  • cups flour
  • Grated rind of ½ lemon
  • ½ teaspoon salt


Put flour, sugar, salt and lemon rind in bowl, add well beaten eggs, the milk and mix well, then add the dissolved yeast. Beat thoroughly and set away in a warm place to raise, 1 or 2 hours or until very light. Lift the dough by spoonfuls, carefully from the top of the mixture, so as not to disturb the remainder.

Spread on griddle with back of spoon. Let bake slowly, that they may raise again, turn and bake on the other side.

Place baked pancakes singly on large platter or on individual plates.

Spread top of pancakes with a thick layer of Prune Filling, cover generously with grated Ginger Bread for Fillings, or gingersnaps, and over all spread whipped cream sweetened and flavored to taste.
