  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
  • 0 pinch salt
  • 2.252 ¼ cups sparkling water

Preparation
  1. Cream the butter with the sugar until soft. Add the vanilla sugar, salt and the egg yolk and incorporate.
  2. Pour the sparkling water into the flour and mix together then add to the butter mixture. (You can refrigerate the batter overnight at this stage.)
  3. Beat the egg white stiff and add it to the mixture along with a glug of oil and fold it all in carefully.
  4. Let the batter rest a while (it will rise a little). You can also rest it overnight at this point.
