This is my Aunt Violet's recipe. It was on our table every Sunday. The recipe is very old.

Forgot the oil and I used cream topped milk and whole wheat flour because that's what was in the fridge. These were EXCELLENT! Sweet cream butter, ice cold raw milk and real maple syrup completed the meal. Made for PAC Fall 2007
