- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk warm
- 2 eggs separated

In a bowl, combine flours, yeast and salt.
Add warm milk and egg yolks. Whisk until smooth.
Cover with a tea towel.
Let rest for about 1 hour in a warm place.
In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Fold in meringue, using a whisk.
