Gradually add sugar, beating until very stiff.
With same beater, beat egg yolks at high speed in a small bowl until very light in color and slightly thickened.
Gradually add flour, beating until mixture is thick and well blended.
Fold yolks into whites, blending lightly but thoroughly.
Quickly melt butter in a shallow oval or rectangular pan about 7 by 11 inches over direct medium heat.
Making 6 equal mounds, heap egg mixture into warm pan.
