Egg 5 pieces
Sugar 3 tbsp
Madeira (wine) 50 ml

Stages of cooking

1
Cool the eggs in fridge beforehand and then separate yolks from whites. Grind or whip the yolks with sugar until white.
2
Add the jam and Madeira wine into the whipped egg, don’t stop whipping. Madeira can be substituted with rum or good brandy. Add the semolina. Set aside to sit a little so the semolina can swell.

Whip the whites until elastic, and then add to the rest of the ingredients. Carefully stir so the pastry won’t lose its airy properties.
