  • 4 Egg whites
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 Vanilla bean
  • 125 g Sugar
  • 4 Egg yolks

  • Line a baking tray with greased baking paper. Grease a bowl. Preheat the oven to 230 degrees.
  • Beat the egg yolks with the sugar and vanilla sugar until fluffy. Beat the egg whites with 3 tablespoons of water until stiff. Carefully fold the beaten egg whites into the egg yolk mixture.
