  2. Step 2Whip with a fork till streaks are gone and smooth yellow is formed.
  3. Step 3Throw a 26cm pan on the stove on a medium to high heat. Add butter.
  4. Step 4When butter is foaming swirl around the pan then pour in the beaten egg mixture.
  5. Step 5Push the eggs slowly from side to side with a wooden spoon or plastic spatula, lifting and folding.
  6. Step 6Pile eggs in a clump. Should take no more than 1.5 to 2 minutes.
Extra Tips
- Do not over beat - lightly whisk with a fork till a smooth yellow colour forms.
- Use a non-stick fry pan.
- Medium heat to high heat produces a soft fluffy result with no "weeping".
- Move mixture in a constant motion to prevent over cooking in spots - the eggs will continue to cook once removed from heat.
