Take one pint of milk, stir in as much flour as will bring it to the
consistency of hasty pudding; boil it till it becomes thick, let it
cool, and beat it up with ten eggs; when smooth, take a spoonful at a
time, and drop it into a frying-pan, in which there is a good quantity
of boiling clarified butter, fry of a light brown, and serve with
clarified sugar, flavored with lemon essence.
