1. Before you add the firm egg white let dough rest for 30 min. The flour binds better with the liquid. After adding egg white mix well again.
2. The dough looks quite thin but that is ok.
3. Raisins sink down fast in a dough, before you pour the dough into the skillet, mix well.
4. Caramelizing is the key!
5. Use a non-stick pan.
6. Add sugar, turn, then wait 30 seconds; add sugar to the other pieces, turn, wait again.
