Beat well the whites of four, and the yolks of eight fresh eggs, and add, by degrees, half a pound of pounded loaf sugar, a pint and a half of sweet cream just warmed, half a pound of clarified fresh butter, two tablespoonfuls of fresh yeast, and a wine-glass full of spirits of wine; then mix in as much sifted flour as will make it into a thick natter; let it rise for half an hour; roll it out thin; cut it into rounds or oblong pieces, and lav on them jam or marmalade; double them, and let them stand again to rise, and fry them in boiling fresh lard or butter.
