This Is How Pancakes Were Made In The 18th Century

We now know how fried chicken and onion rings were made before industrial deep fryers thanks to Jas. Townsend and Son, Inc., a group that accurately recreates things from the 18th century.

While digging around with some historic recipes, they found one that shows how one of our favorite breakfast dishes, pancakes, would have been made back in the day.

The recipe utilizes cornmeal and wheat flour rather than the modern all-purpose. The result is a much thinner, though still delicious, looking breakfast cake.

Check out the recipe. Hey, if you’re ever stuck in the past, you’re gonna want to know how to make pancakes. Could go extremely well with that 18th century fried chicken.
