Fluffy, fall-apart-in-your-mouth goodness. Keep the finished pancakes in the oven on low while you finish cooking the rest. Spread with butter and serve with real maple syrup.


Serves: 4 

  • 250g flour
  • 1 rounded tablespoon baking soda
  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 300ml milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

Preparation:40min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Mix together flour and baking soda. Drop in egg yolks and mix in while adding milk. Mix til smooth.
  2. Let mixture sit for between 30-60 minutes.
  3. Beat egg whites with an electric mixer til stiff.
  4. Melt butter
  5. Add a spoonful of egg whites to the yolk/flour batter and stir gently.Add the butter in a thin stream, still stirring. Gently fold in the remaining egg whites mixing until just combined,
  6. Heat a non-stick frypan or swipe a butter-soaked paper towel over a normal frypan.
  7. Drop the desired sized portions in the pan. Turn when little air bubbles burst on the uncooked side-just a few minutes.
  8. Cook for about 5 seconds on the other side-DONT press with the spatula...this will keep them from rising.

Bit too eggy. Could have done with one/two less eggs. Nice and fluffy. May be better with sugar and lemon as a topping as there is no sugar in the recipe. - 18 Oct 2009


They had way to much baking soda in them for my liking. though they are easy to make, and look great. - 20 Mar 2013
