  • 2 large eggs, yolks and whites separated
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  1. In a bowl, whisk together egg yolks and 2 tablespoons of sugar until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add milk and vanilla extract, and mix well.
  3. Sift in flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until the batter is smooth.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add the remaining sugar and whip until glossy and stiff peaks form.

  6. Heat a non-stick pan over low heat. Add a touch of butter.
  7. For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan. Cook until the edges start to set, and bubbles form on the surface.
