Slovenian Sweet Omelet / Pahorje

A sweet omelet may be a strange/unusual idea but this traditional omelet with vanilla and fresh berries will surprise and delight your tastebuds!

3 eggs, separated
30ml + 30ml sugar
1ml + 1ml salt
45ml flour
125ml cream
2,5ml vanilla
80ml strawberry/raspberry jam
fresh berries
icing sugar, for dusting

Preheat your oven to 220℃ and line the base of a 22cm loose-bottom cake tin with baking paper. Spray with cooking spray and set aside.
Add the egg whites to a mixing bowl and beat with an electric whisk until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
Add the egg yolks, 30ml sugar and 1ml salt to a separate mixing bowl.
Beat on high speed for 2-3 minutes until you have a very thick, very pale mixture that falls from the whisk in ribbons.
Fold a third of the egg whites into the mixture, add the rest and fold in until just combined.
Sift the flour over and fold in with a metal spoon until smooth.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking tin and gently smooth the top.
Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. The omelet should be fluffy and golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the centre should come out clean.
Add the cream, vanilla, 30ml sugar and 1ml salt to a mixing bowl and whisk until medium-stiff peaks form. Refrigerate until needed.
Remove the omelet from the oven and remove the ring of the cake tin.
Invert the omelet onto a plate and gently peel off the baking paper.
Allow to cool to room temperature.
Spread the jam on half the omelet.
Spread the cream over the jam and sprinkle over the fresh berries.
Gently fold the omelet over.
Dust with icing sugar to serve.
