  • 5 eggs, separated into yolks and whites,
  • 1 pinch of salt,
  • 1.76 oz of cake flour,
  • 2.71 fluid oz of milk,
  • 2.12 oz of fine sugar,
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract,
  • You have a choice of toppings: fresh fruit, homemade fruit sauce, maple syrup, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, or powdered sugar.

How to prepare:

  1. Start by separating the yolks from the whites. Beat the whites to stiff peaks with a pinch of salt. Gradually add sugar to the bowl in small amounts.
  2. In a different bowl, mix the yolks with milk and vanilla extract.
  3. Gently sieve the flour into the mixture. Along with beating the whites earlier, this process ensures your pancakes will be perfectly fluffy.
  4. Slowly fold the beaten whites into the yolk mixture. Do this gently to preserve their structure.
  5. Carefully ladle the mixture on a well-heated pan with a minimal amount of fat to form small, round pancakes. Fry each side for 2-3 minutes until they turn a lovely golden brown.
  6. Immediately serve these cloud-like pancakes with your choice of toppings. And that's it, enjoy!
