Soufflé Pancake Recipe

My husband got up very late almost every morning except there is a meeting he needs to attend to or some stuff he needs to handle with. If I want him to get up early, I usually tell him  that I will make him a good breakfast on the night before. (He likes to have bread in the morning, so I only make him breakfast occasionally. He thinks that I cook lunch and dinner almost everyday, it’s already tiring to me so he can handle breakfast by himself). Last night, I told him that I would make him this soufflé pancake and he should get up earlier than before. Guess what happened today. I overslept too. 🙂 But I still decided to cook him this pancake since I already promised him.

I always wanted to try this fluffy pancake before. Yet, there is one big problem for me is that this recipe requires whipping egg white. Whipping egg white or cream is nightmare to me. I almost failed every time. On the bright side, whipping egg white is relatively not that hard.

1. Divide 1 egg yolk and 1 egg white. Put egg white aside for later use.

2. Whip egg yolk till the color becomes lighter. Then add in 1 tsp white sugar. Blend till fully combined.

3. Sieve in 20g flour. You can add in 2 or 3 times. Make sure there is no flour lump.

4. Whip egg white. You can use a electric mixture. I just used my hands. When the color becomes white and bubbles show up, add in 1 tsp sugar. Keep whipping, when many small bubbles appear, add another 1 tsp sugar. Whip till stiff hook forms.

5. Mix egg white with batter together.

6. Heat a pan. Brush a little oil. Turn to low heat during the whole frying process. Scoop batter and drop into pan. Cover the lid for 3 mins. Then flip over and fry for another 3 mins.

Serve with honey, butter, jam, and plain yogurt or whatever you like.

My husband loved them very very much. I just left to the kitchen for about 2 mins, when I came back to the dining table, he already finished all of them. 🙂

Oatmeal Bar

When I made an adventurous journey in my kitchen searching for cookies, I found a pack of rolled oats. Then I remembered I bought it to make chocolate chip cookies. Now there is still 1/3 left.

When I explored the fridge for any ready-to-eat food, I found some black currant jam left in the bottle. My husband bought it long time ago to spread on his bread. I checked the expiry date, still safe to eat. So I decided to make this oatmeal bar to consume both oats and black currant jam.

Ingredients:

2 cups of oats

80g butter

70g flour

70g brown sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1. Place oats, sugar, flour, salt and baking soda in a big bowl. Mix them well.

2. Cut in butter. Make all ingredients into crumbs with ginger. This may take a little while.

3. Preheat oven to 180 degree C.

4. Press 2/3 crumbs into the baking pan very firmly.

5. Spread jam over it. Apart from jam, you can also choose peanut butter or Nutella.

6. Sprinkle the rest crumbs on top.

In to the oven, bake for 30-35 mins till golden brown.

Cool down and cut into squares.

You can put them in an airtight box and save for breakfast.

You can also add in chopped nuts. And reduced oats. And I cut down brown sugar so mine oatmeal bars are not very sweet. If you really like it to be more sweet, you can add more sugar.

For the filling:

Mix them well in another bowl.

Heat a pan on stove. Grease it with oil. Scoop batter into the pan. Keep low heat. Cover the lid for 3-4 mins.

Sprinkle walnut & sesame filling in it.

Cover the lid for another 2-3 mins.

Use a spatula to fold the pancake from one side to the other and press lightly.

Serve hot.

Super Easy Basic Waffles

We bought a waffle maker yesterday. I couldn’t wait to cook some delicious waffles with it. My husband wanted Belgian waffles. So I found some recipes online and tried them. Yet, it was a big failure. Waffles I made tasted like strong baking soda flavor stuff. It’s not easy for me to quit, especially on cooking. I thought I should start with basic ones. And I found a wonder recipe online. Lucky me!

https://www.google.com.sg/amp/www.food.com/amp/recipe/basic-batter-waffles-110683

It’s super easy. No need to beat the egg white with electric mixer.

I just halved the batch.

Ingredients:

Egg 1

Milk 200g

Olive oil  1/6 cup

Flour 1 cup

Baking powder 1/2 tsp

Salt 1/4 tsp

Sugar 1 tsp

Vanilla 1/2 tsp
Preheat waffle maker first. And then prepare the batter.
1. Mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a big bowl.

2. Mix egg with milk, oil and vanilla in another bowl.

3. Combine dry ingredients with wet ingredients. Don’t overmix. Stop when they just combine. It’s ok if there’s still flour bumps.

4. Pour batter over preheated waffle maker.

5. Serve with syrup and fruits you like. You can also add nuts or butter.
