  2. Whisk the egg white in to this batter mixture
  3. Pour a little oil in a non-stick pan and bring up to a medium heat
  4. Dip the elderflower head (the flower side) in to the batter mix, using the stalk like a handle to hold, give it a quick shake over the bowl to remove any excess batter mixture
