In This Recipe
  1. Blend the milk and flour and stir until smooth.
  2. Add the egg yolks, sugar, lemon, salt & 4 tablespoons of melted butter. Whisk until combined.
  3. Beat the egg white then just before cooking fold them into the batter and add the raisins last.
  4. In a large cooking pan on medium heat, add the remaining butter and pour the batter so that it is about 1 inch thick.
