Put the yolks into the pan that the cakes are to be mixed in and beat them a minute or two, then stir in the melted butter and salt, then half of the milk and the flour; beat it until it is smooth and then add the other half of the milk; stir in the whites last and bake immediately. Put a small quantity of butter or lard into the baking pan, and when it is hot enough to brown put in two large kitchen spoonfuls of the batter and let it spread all over the pan.
