How to cook

  1. In a bowl whisk together the flour, salt and yeast. Pour in milk, mixing until batter is smooth.

  2. Cover for 1 hour. After the batter has risen, stir in melted butter and the yolk of the egg.

  3. Whisk the egg white and fold it into the batter. Let the batter rest stand for 20 minutes.

  4. In a non-stick skillet over medium heat drop quarter size dollops of dough. Don’t crowd the pan and flip them after 1 minute.
