First, we will beat the proteins with no additions, and then, adding another 100 grams of powdered sugar, we will bring the mass to a dense dense state. If the container with the protein mass is turned over, the contents should be kept in a vessel.

- chicken egg - 2 pieces;
- wheat flour of the highest grade - 80 g;
- baking powder - 1 tsp.
The process of whipping with the help of a water bath
Baking powder will not allow our dough to settle in the baking process, and a reduced number of eggs will make the dough itself less liquid. By the way, if you have problems with baking according to the classic recipe, you can also reduce the number of eggs used for the test.
We will not separate the whites from the yolks, but we will use the water bath. You can start beating the mixture even before boiling water. After the water in the saucepan comes to a boil, remove the water bath from the heat and continue to beat on the table. The composition should be incredibly dense and increase in volume at least 4 times. Note the time and beat exactly 8 minutes.
In a separate vessel, mix the flour with the baking powder and, just like in the classic recipe, gradually add a free-flowing compound (you can directly through a sieve) in small portions, kneading slightly, so that the mass will never settle. According to the consistency of the composition should be not just dense, and stingy.
