About this recipe: Fluffy, fall-apart-in-your-mouth treats for a sumptuous breakfast for someone special!


Serves: 4 

  • 250g plain flour
  • 1 rounded tablespoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 300ml Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:30min chilling  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Mix together flour and bicarb. Drop in egg yolks and mix while adding milk. Mix till smooth. Let sit for between 30-60 minutes (go back to bed in the meantime!).
  2. Beat egg whites with an electric mixer till stiff. Add a spoonful of egg whites to the yolk/flour mixture and stir gently. Add the melted butter in a thin stream, still stirring. Fold in the remaining egg whites ever-so-gently, mixing until just combined.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan or swipe a butter-soaked kitchen paper over a regular pan. Drop the desired sized portions on heated pan. Turn when little air bubbles burst on the uncooked side. Cook for about 5 seconds on the other side - DON'T press with the spatula...this would keep them from rising so beautifully.
