Here is another Tombstone Epitaph recipes from days gone by. A hearty pancake indeed. Breakfast is important. Did you eat breakfast today?
6 eggs, lightly beaten
2 pounds flour (8 cups)
1/2 gill yeast (1/4 cup)
1 teaspoon salt
Milk to make thick batter (about 6 cups)
Stir flour, yeast, salt and milk into the eggs. Drop the batter by large spoonfuls onto a hot griddle. When bubbles appear, turn the cakes. Cook until golden brown. Butter them and send them hot to the table after the family is seated. Serve with a topping such as greengage plum preserves.
These pancakes can be served for breakfast or made later in the day for serving at an afternoon tea.
When I used to make pancakes for my children, I would take a bananna and some honey or maple syrup and mix it well in a blender, then add this mixture to the pancake mix. They loved it. :)
