Canzonett: thanks for transferring the Vanillekipferl recipe to this thread!
Here are two more delicious recipes (I still have not figured out how to insert images, does not seem to work even when I click on the Img button...):
Ingredients for 4 people:
• 6 eggs
• 200 grams cake or pastry flour
• 50 grams sugar
• 250 milliliters milk
• pinch of salt
• 20 grams of raisins
• powdered sugar
• plum or apple puree
Separate the egg whites from yolks.
Thoroughly mix the yolks, sugar, milk and flour.
Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites and beat until stiff.
Add stiff egg whites into the dough and fold carefully.
Melt butter in a large pan, pour in the dough and sprinkle in raisins. Let cook on one side for a few minutes, turn over and tear into pieces with a fork.
Be careful not to overcook the pancakes, otherwise they will dry out. Sprinkle powdered sugar and serve with plum or apple puree.
• 4 tsp. unsalted butter
• 4 tsp. currant or grape jelly
• whites of 9 large eggs, at -room temperature
• 1/2 c vanilla sugar
• zest of 1/2 lemon
• 4 grated egg yolks
• 1/4 c granulated sugar
• 1/2 c sifted all purpose flour
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Place four 9-inch oval au gratin dishes (or one large oval glass lasagna pan) on a baking sheet. In each small dish place 1 teaspoon of butter and 1 teaspoon of jelly. (If you are using a lasagna pan, smear the bottom with the butter and then with the jelly.
Combine the egg whites, vanilla sugar, and lemon zest in a large metal bowl. Beat with an electric mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form.
Beat the egg yolks with the granulated sugar. Gently fold the egg yolks and flour into the meringue. Use a spatula to place three large mounds of the mixture into each au gratin dish. Smooth the surface of each and bake for 8 minutes, until puffed and golden.
Serve immediately. This is especially good with Vanilla Sauce, warm Chocolate Sauce, or cold Strawberry Sauce (recipes separately).
