Feasts

This versatile pancake recipe can be used on festive occasions for a tasty dessert, but also for the main dish on Fridays if served with vegetables.

DIRECTIONS

Scald milk and cool to lukewarm. Put 4 tablespoons in a cup, add 1 teaspoon sugar and crumbled yeast. Let stand until yeast rises to top of cup. Stir butter and remaining sugar into remaining milk. Add beaten egg yolks. Mix well. Add dissolved yeast, flour and salt. Beat until smooth. Cover with cloth and set in warm place to rise like a bread dough. Turn out on floured board, roll out about 1/2 inch thick and cut with large glass or cookie cutter like biscuits. Place in greased pans, let rise until light and bake at 350 degrees F. until light brown, 12-15 minutes. To serve, top cakes with cooked prunes, sweetened to taste (or other preserves or jelly), and cottage cheese. Good as a Friday dish served with vegetables. To serve as a dessert, spoon whipped cream on cottage cheese. --Mrs. Joseph Kaitman, Independence.
