1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup of yeast or 1 cake of Fleischman's yeast
dissolved in a cup of lukewarm water; 1/2 cup of a mixture of butter
and lard and a pinch of salt and flour to thicken until batter is
quite thick. Stand in a warm place, closely covered, until morning,
when add 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of sugar and flour to stiffen as thick as
