Beat the egg whites and sugar in a bowl until stiff. In another bowl, combine the milk, flour, egg yolks, lemon juice, rum, vanilla sugar and salt. Stir until batter is smooth. Fold in the egg whites.

In a large ovenproof pan, heat some butter and pour in the batter. First brown on the stove, then turn over and bake both sides until brown in a preheated oven at 180 °C.
