[Updated 25 June 2019] You might have seen a photo or two of this tall, fluffy pancakes online and thought, "Wow, doesn't this look yummy?" 😋 Well, friends, this beauty here is called a soufflé pancake. Credit: Giphy Yet another dessert originating from Japan (where this is known as the fuwa fuwa pancake), soufflé pancakes are a lighter, airier version of our traditional, dense pancakes. Just like the soufflé, this pancake is made with egg whites stiffly beaten until it rises. 😮 While there are a limited number of cafes that serve this mouthwatering dessert in Kuala Lumpur, here's where you can find them 😊

And a pretty good guess would be their soufflé pancakes 😉 Like cutting into a poofy cloud, their soufflé pancake is humbly served the original way - with cream and maple syrup or honey syrup. They have pot-baked soufflés too that comes with fillings like vanilla custard, vanilla chocolate and matcha 😋 Pair this with their specialty hand-drip coffee, you're in for a perfect treat!
