For a tansy cake. Breke egges in bassyn and swyng hem sone, Do powder of peper þer to anone. Þen grynde tansy, þo iuse owte wrynge, To blynde with þo egges with owte lesynge. In pan or skelet þou shalt hit frye, In buttur wele skymmet wyturly, Or white grece þou make take þer to, Geder hit on a cake, þenne hase þou do, With platere of tre, and frye hit browne. On brode leches serve hit þou schalle, With fraunche mele or oþer metis with alle.
