Makes 1 pie


5 5 eggs
1/3 cup 80 mL sugar
1/3 cup 80 mL milk
2/3 cup 80 mL flour
1/2 tsp 2 mL vanilla
1/4 tsp 1 mL salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F (175C) and grease a pie plate. Once we start working with egg whites, everything should happen as fast as possible, so we will do these first.
  2. Separate the eggs into whites and yolks.
  3. Beat up the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
  4. Beat the sugar into the egg yolks until they are thick and pale yellow.
  5. Beat everything except the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture until smooth. Don't beat too much or all the baking powder will react and your eierkuchen won't rise.
  6. Gently slide the egg whites onto the egg yolk mixture using a spatula and fold it in. Use the spatula to cut the mixture in half and fold one half onto the other. Then rotate the bowl an irregular angle and repeat. Stop when the mixture looks more-or-less mixed. You can use beaters, but don't mix much or the egg whites will collapse.
  7. Gently slide the mixture into the greased pan and bake for 35 minutes.
  8. Sprinkle eierkuchen with icing sugar or serve with fruit sauce or jam.
