SHROVE TUESDAY PANCAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 11 July 1916
SHROVE TUESDAY PANCAKES. We must not allow the difficulties j of the present time to drive the old custom of frying pancakes on the eve of Lent. Pancakes, of a kind, are made all the year round, but the Shrove Tuesday pancake is a some- ; what superior dainty. You require 3 fresh eggs, 3 ounces of flour, \ pint milk, a little salt. Beat the eggs : well, but not vigorously ; slowly add the flour, salt, and a few drops of .milk. Beat all perfectly smooth, then add the remainder of the milk | by degrees. The batter should be of ' the consistency of thick cream. Melt a little butter in a clean dry frying pan, and when quite hot pour in | about half a teacupful of the hatter, and fry it for five minutes or until nicely browned on one side. If very thin it need not be turned. When done take it up, sprinkle sugar over it, roll up, and keep it quite hot in the oven until they are all fried, i Serve at once very hot with sugar j and cut lemon. j
