D. Here is John Locke's (1632 - 1704) Recipe for Pancakes:

(note: the spelling has not been modernized!)


"Take sweet cream 3/4 pint. Flower a quarter of a pound. Eggs 7 leave out 4 of the whites. Beat the Eggs very well. Then put in the flower, beat it a quarter of an hower. Then put in six spoonfuls of the Cream, beat it a little. Take a new sweet butter half a pound. Melt it to oyle, & take off the skum, power in all the clear by degrees beating it all the time. Half a grated nutmeg & little orangeflower water. Frie it without butter. This is the right way."
