In a small bowl measure out 2 tablespoons or 30g of butter and melt it in the microwave or in a small saucepan over low heat.

You’ll notice I give the recipe amounts in metric and imperial so no matter where you live in the world the recipe should beeasy enough to follow. If you would like the full recipe for these pancakes.

Pour the melted butter into a medium sized bowl followed by half a cup or 125ml of milk. Use a whisk to combine these two ingredients together.

When you make these souffle pancakes one thing you do need to keep in mind is just like a souffle, the minute you remove them from the heat they will start to deflate. You don’t need to worry about this too much,just make sure to serve them straight away rather than cooking the whole batch and serving them all at once.

For the wet ingredients we only need one egg yolk so seperate the egg but make sure to hold onto the egg white, just place it ina spare bowl as we’ll be using it soon.

This is also the point where you can add any flavouring you would like, a teaspoon of vanilla essence, some lemon juice or zest, its completely up to you. Give the wet ingredients a final mix together until the egg yolk is completely combined. Next we’ll need the dry ingredients, the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt.

Measure out 2/3 of a cup or 80g of standard all purpose flour and add it straight into the mixing bowl. You can put it through a sieve first but I haven’t had any issues with lumps while whisking the batter together.

The egg whites are going to give most of the volume to these pancakes, but just to give them a little help we’re also going to use a couple of teaspoon of baking powder.

Make sure you are using baking powder here and not baking soda as the soda will leave the pancakes with quite the bitter taste.

These two ingredients get confused often but using them wrong can easily ruin everything. Finally add a good pinch of salt and using a whisk combine the ingredients together.

Try to be careful not to over mix, just enough until the ingredients are combined. If you do have a few lumps it’s not a problem we just don’t want large lumps of dry flour. Set the pancake batter to the side while we work on the egg whites. In the same bowl that you saved the last eggwhite, we’re going to add two more so we have 3 egg whites in total.

You’ll have a couple of left over egg yolks after this, they’re great just added to scrambled eggs, to make a quick lemon curdto go with your pancakes or sauces like hollandaise. Just put them in the fridge and they’ll last a few days until you use them rather than throwing them away. While your separating your eggs make surenot to get any egg yolks in the whites as this will completely deflate the egg whites as they are trying to whip up.

I usually seperate them between the two shells but if you’re not comfortable doing it that way the easiest way I’ve seen is to just crack it into your clean palm, separating your fingers for the whites to fall through. Place you egg whites in the bowl of your stand mixer or a large bowl if you are using a hand mixer or if you’re brave enough to do this by hand with a whisk.

It is possible but it will take you a very long time. Beat your egg whites on a low-speed first until they start to become frothy before turning the machine up to medium. As soon as your egg whites start to become opaque measure out a 1/4 cup or 50g of white sugar, turning your machine down to a medium speed start to slowly sprinkle in the sugar over the course of a few minutes.

As the sugar dissolves into the egg whites they should become thick, glossy and cloud like.

Adding the sugar into the egg whites instead of into the pancake batter just helps to give the egg whites structure meaning they’re less likely to collapse and loose all of their air when they’re folded into the batter. Continue to beat the eggs over a medium to high speed until they reach the stiff peak stage and they’re ready to be combined withthe pancake batter.

Fold the egg whites into the pancake batter a third at a time. For the first third it’s easiest to usea whisk just until they are combined and the pancake batter lightens before switching toa rubber spatula and being a lot more careful.

You should be left with a very fluffy pancake batter that is quite stiff and will keep its shape.

Heat a fry pan over medium low heat and add about 1/2 to 3/4 cups of batter to the lightly greased pan. Cook for about 5 minutes each side, you cancover with a lid if you would like and they will cook quicker. Be extremely careful when flipping them so they don’t completely deflate. You’ll know the pancakes are cooked through when you lightly press on the top and it springs back.
