An interesting-sounding recipe from a 1966 mailer. Posted so I wouldn't lose it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat milk and pour over crumbs, and let stand for 15 minutes.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder and salt, and add to crumb mixture, along with egg, syrup (or honey) and melted butter.
  3. Beat until well blended and free lumps, and drop by tablespoons onto a well-greased griddle, allowing one side to brown before turning.
  4. Re-grease griddle before every batch.
  5. Serve hot.

What a great way to use up some stale bread...I used some leftover fruit bread that had to be used up and golden syrup in place of honey...were a sure fire hit with little miss DD. Thanks for posting!

One of the aspect of these that I enjoy is they are so versatile. Add a tad of sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon and you have french toast pancakes. Add your favorite dried berry to the batter. I really like this recipe. Thank you so much for sharing it.

I love this and have made it a few times for friends & family. Everyone is dubious at first until they try it.
