Japanese Souffle Pancake Recipe 

  • Yolks 
    • 1 egg yolk 
    • 1 tbsp sugar 
    • 2 tbsp milk 
    • 3 tbsp flour 
    • ¼ tsp baking powder 
  • Whites 
    • 2 large egg whites 
    • 1/8 tsp cream of tartar 
    • 1.5 tbsp sugar 
  1. Whisk the egg yolk with 1 tablespoon of sugar until pale and frothy, add the milk in batches. Sift the flour and baking powder over the yolk mixture and whisk well making sure everything is incorporated. 
  2. In a new bowl whip the egg whites with the cream of tartar until frothy and pale, adding in the sugar in bit at a time until the whites are whipped into a glossy thick meringue that holds a peak, be careful not to over whip. 
  3. Take 1/3 of the whipped egg whites and whisk it into the bowl with the yolks until completely incorporated. Add half of the remaining whites and whisk into the yolk batter, being careful not to deflate. Finally add the egg yolk mixture to the remaining egg whites, whisk and then use a spatula to fold together. 
  4. Heat up a large non-stick frying pan with a lid over low heat, very lightly brush with oil. Using an ice cream scoop or measuring cup, scoop the batter onto the pan. Unless you have a very large pan with a lid, it’s probably best to make these two or even one to a pan. Scoop the batter onto the pan, cover and cook for 4-5 minutes. 
  5. Remove the lid and add some more batter on top of each pancake. Cover and continue to cook for 4-5 more minutes. Lift the lid and use a spatula to gently check under the pancake. The pancake should release easily – don’t force it. 
  6. If you still have any batter left, pile it on top of the pancakes and then gently flip. Cover and cook for 5-6 minutes. The pancakes will grow even taller and fluffier when they’re done. 
  7. Once the pancakes are golden and cooked through, gently remove and serve on a plate with powdered sugar, butter, whipped cream, and maple syrup. Enjoy immediately!
