  1. 4 very fresh eggs
  2. 220 grams (1/2 lb) buckwheat flour + 50 grams (1.5 oz) corn/maize starch, both sieved together
  3. 130 grams (4 oz) melt butter

  5. 8 centiliters (2.7 fl oz) plain full fat milk
  6. A few vanilla extract drops
  7. 1 small bag (1/3 oz) baking powder made of corn/maize starch


1) In a salad bowl, pour the flour/starch mixture, make a hole in the middle and pour into it sugar, milk, eggs, vanilla and baking powder. Stir well with a whip and when the mixture is compact, pour the (liquid) melt butter (still keep whipping) untill fully incorporated. Cover with a clean cloth and let the mixture at room temperature during 2 hours.
