7g flour
250mL milk
80g sugar
3 eggs
0.5 tbsp vanilla sugar
0.25 tsp grated lemon zest
50g butter
jam or powdered sugar
pinch salt

Mix the semolina with the flour and soak in the milk for 2 hours.

Separate the egg yolks and whites, beat the yolks with the sugar, lemon zest and vanilla until white and foamy. Beat the egg whites to still peaks with a pinch of salt.

Combine the semolina portion, the egg yolk mix and the whites. Melt the butter in a large teflon skilled over medium-high heat. Pour in the batter and allow to sit for 1-2 minutes.
