      I've revised my review because I read it incorrectly the first time. I am still somewhat confused by when to add the egg whites to the batter because directions Step #7 say to soak the flowers in the egg whites but in Step #5 it is folded into the batter. These were fabulous and the flavor unlike anything I've ever tried. Love the hint of orange. Used soft pink elderflowers because that's all we have producing now. Thanks for posting a gem of a recipe, Molly.
