How to make Japanese Soufflé Pancakes
The way I made these is by whipping together egg whites and cream of tarter till you get stiff peaks. This is a beginning step for lots of recipes, including these 1 calorie meringue cookies.
The biggest complaint I get when people are trying to turn egg whites into stiff peaks is that sometimes the eggs never set up. 9 out of 10 times I find out that they are using liquid egg whites from a carton. I do buy the liquid egg whites in a carton, however, they are very stubborn about whipping into peaks. Maybe it has to do with the pasteurization, I don’t know?
What I do know is real egg whites, taken from a whole egg can whip into stiff peaks within 2-3 minutes! So, start there if you are having trouble.
After you get those beautiful stiff peaks, fold in self rising flour and Monk sugar.
At this point, you want to scoop out the batter on a hot skillet, sprayed with cooking spray. These can be any size, because I calculated the calories and macros for the ENTIRE recipe. Cook the pancakes on both sides until done, and slide them out of the skillet.
