SCHMARREN (German Scrambled Pancakes)

2 T. butter
2 T. sugar
4 eggs, separated
pinch salt
2 c. flour
1 c. milk or cream
2 T. butter

Cream butter til frothy, then add, one after another, sugar, egg yolks, salt, flour and milk. Beat egg whites til stiff and carefully fold in. Melt remaining butter in a pan (we believe a cast iron skillet is preferred) and pour in batter. Fry on each side til golden brown. With 2 forks, chop the resulting pancake. Serve schmarren on a hot platter sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar and garnished with pieces of apple, cherry, seedless raisins or other fruit, sautéed in butter.
(serves 4)
