Japanese Souffle pancakes are a very popular dessert and you can find them in most of the coffee bars in Singapore. Since they are not very sweet, you can top them up with maple syrup, fresh berries or even a dollop of ice cream, hence making it a perfect treat at any time of the day. The thick pancakes or Japanese souffle pancakes are pillow soft, light and fluffy due to egg separation method with the meringue beaten to stiff peak forms and then folded into the batter (just like the way you make a chiffon cake). It is usually made into a round and thick pancake by filling the batter into a mousse ring or by scoping it on to the greased non-stick frying pan at very low heat. Add about 3-4 teaspoons of water around the sides of the batter, so that the bottom side will not get burnt too soon. Then cover with a lid and cook for about 4-8 minutes, depending on how thick is your pancake and flip the pancake over to cook for another few minutes with a few more teaspoons of water. Best to serve the pancake warm. Enjoy!

- Whisk egg white with a pinch of salt to foamy and add sugar in 2 batches, continue to whisk to stiff peaks form.
- Gently fold 1/3 of the meringue into the thick paste to lighten the batter. Then fold in the remaining meringue to smooth (thick) batter (do not over fold or the egg white will be deflated).
- Heat up a flat non-stick pan at very low heat and grease pan with some oil. Place rings on pan, then scoop in the thick batter to 3/4 full (I only made 2 pancakes).
- Add a 3-4 teaspoons of water to each side of the ring, Close lid and cook for about 4 minutes.
- Then flip the pancakes over, add water again and cook for another 4 minutes or until golden brown and aromatic with lid closed. **the pancake will collapse if not properly cooked through**
