  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Honey, for serving
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Separate the egg white from the yolk. Beat the egg white until stiff peaks form, then gradually add the sugar and continue beating until well incorporated. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, egg yolk, and milk. Mix well until a smooth batter forms, free of lumps.
  3. Gently fold in the beaten egg white into the batter using a spatula, incorporating it with delicate, folding motions.
  4. Add the nutmeg and cinnamon to the batter and gently mix until evenly distributed.
  5. Heat a frying pan or griddle over medium heat and grease with butter.
  6. Using a ladle or spoon, pour the pancake batter onto the heated pan, spreading it out to form uniform pancakes.
  7. Cook the pancakes until bubbles form on the surface and the edges start to set, then flip and cook until golden brown on both sides.
  8. Repeat the process with the remaining batter until all pancakes are cooked.
  9. Serve the pancakes warm with a drizzle of honey and an extra pat of butter if desired.
