Sponge Pancake & Awards

Hi Hi I am back! Do you miss me? I guess so (hahaha...thick skin again) cos I missed all of you a lot especially my favourite blogs and the blogs that I always visit. And I would like to thank you my dear readers and friends that kindly left so many messages in my blog during my absence. For those enquiries, I promise I will try to reply ASAP.

I was back to Singapore last Thursday but my schedule was so jam packed after touched down. There are so many things to clear, works and even personal stuff. Worst of all, dear daughter has been sick since the day of departure to Japan, until back to Singapore and now, still in the midst of recovering :( . I brought her to consult paediatrician 3 times just within 2 weeks, spent S$300+, 1/2 of my kitchen aid gone *sob sob*. Then followed by me, I was unwell probably due to lack of rest, busy schedule but luckily, my recovery was fast.

To keep my promise for submitting this sponge pancake to the contest from Table for Two or More which the dateline is 2 Dec 2010, I had to jump queue (I have too many backlog to clear) for this posting. I cooked it during my medical leave (that's why the sponge pancake looks like from Africa, pls excuse a patient :P ok ok I know is a lousy excuse heeheehee... but I promised, the look doesn't affect the taste at all), set an alarm to wake up at 6am to write this post so that I can submit before the deadline :P. Wendy, are you touched by me? Although my sponge pancake is not creative at all and won't be giving you a "WOW", but my sincerity of supporting your contest is as high as sky (hahaha... ok ok I know I am too exaggerated)!

I made 2 versions.

 One is bak kwa (BBQ pork) with pork floss.

Another one is ham & cheese.

Ingredients :
2 eggs
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp all purpose flour
A bit of butter for frying

Method :
1. Separate the eggs and beat egg whites until frothy and add in sugar and beat until medium stiff peaks (egg whites has a very droopy hook and doesn't slide off the bowl).
2. Put in egg yolks and mix.
3. Sift in flour (just use a coffee strainer) and fold into the eggs.
4. Heat a 9 inch pan on medium and put in 1/2 tsp butter. Swirl it around to coat and pour the excess into batter.
5. Lightly fold the batter to incorporate.
6. Turn heat to medium low (very small fire on outer ring or just use low) and pour in all the batter. Put toppings as desired.
7.Cover with lid and cook until sides look golden, and center of pancake is cooked (doesn't stick to fingers)
8. Flip into half or just flip onto plate.

Even I didnt use full 2 tbsp of sugar, I still felt the pancake was a bit too sweet for me, will definitely need to reduce the sugar slightly in future. Dear daughter initially said she likes the bak kwa pork floss version more, awhile later she changed her mind that she prefer ham & cheese version. For me, I love both version of the sponge pancake, both are simply delicious that I cannot decide which to be my favourite.

There is a good news waiting for me when I vet through the comments left in my blog. Zoe, thank you so much for sharing the 2 awards with me, I felt so honor and happy, and of course greatly appreciated!
