Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites.

In a bowl, whisk together the cheese, the flour, the sugar, the egg yolks and the salt until a homogeneous mixture is obtained. Beat the egg whites to form peaks and add it to the mixture (in order to be softer).

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat and spread it with butter. Put a spoonful of the mixture in the pan and spread it. Cook for 2 minutes or until bubbles appear on surface. Flip the pancake over with a palette knife and cook the second side. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining mixture, greasing pan with butter between batches. Serve with the filling we prefer.
