Modern Recipe

  1. Beat the egg whites until fluffy, and beat in enough flour to make a slightly thick batter.
  2. Beat in enough wine to thin the batter to a medium consistency, the same as for modern pancake batter. Add a pinch of salt.
  3. In a large frying pan, heat the oil or butter.
  4. Drop a ladle-full of the batter into the hot pan and cook as you do with pancakes, cooking both sides. Be careful that they stay as white as possible, as with crepes.
