Lemon Souffle Pancake

Post Christmas, for me, is a time to chill, to lounge around the couch watching TV and contemplating when is a good time to check out the post Christmas sales in town…. Heaven forbid that I should have to mess up my kitchen again with ambitious cooking… I am still reeling from the Christmas Day dinner I hosted. It was literally Masterchef Challenge mode the whole day, prepping and cooking one dish after another… all the while consciously trying to keep things neat in the kitchen while I worked… I almost succeeded until guests decided to saunter into the kitchen to ‘help’ and I had to cook while ‘baby sitting’  them…. It had just dawned on me that I am truly the mistress of my kitchen. Only I know how to groove around my kitchen, how to put things away, where to reach for my tools….

Pancake 8

So after a feast of Laksa, Ayam Goreng, Tauhu Tek, Morimoto Tuna pizza, Hawaiian Pizza( for the kids)  and Ondeh Ondeh… post Christmas breakfast is best kept light and simple. These feather-light, citrus flavoured pancakes from Bill Granger’s Bills Sydney Food are just the perfect way to greet a cool breezy morning. Paired with strawberries left over from Christmas Day’s Summer Sangria, I am almost tempted to embark on a low fat detox program… maybe after New Year…or more realistically, after Chinese New Year… :)

Hail The Holidays! Enjoy!

Hahaha.. one more month to CNY, detox first so that you can indulge more later.
Just like dirty dishes, wash first, soil it later again. It's easier to wash when it's not left around for too long, LOL.

Hahah! I'm the dictator of my kitchen. I don't allow guest to 'help' at all, even Vijay gets ordered around.

Post Christmas I don't even cook, just nibble on leftovers and call a cookie breakfast. Between now and CNY, will try to squeeze in more workout time in the hopes of not putting on anymore weight. Happy holidays!

@Pickyin- Yes, I agree – next time I should be more firm about people staying out of the kitchen. Good thing about this dinner was I managed to control the portions… no left overs! Yay! :)

I think after all the holiday cooking you're finally ready for the Masterchef challenge. Should I sign you up? 😛
I wanted to do crepe souffle the other day so I guess great minds think alike, right? It looks delicious.

The recipe sounds amazing! It says to mix in lemon juice, but I don't see in the recipe where it says how much juice to use. Help?

@Megan: I almost missed out your comment… I apologise. Good catch,Megan. I must have overlooked the lemon juice when I was typing out the recipe. (my least favourite part about writing my post :) ) The quantity is 2 tbsp. I have amended the recipe. Thanks!

Love your sweet recipes.

I just made these and they’re wonderful! The only adjustment made was to decrease the vanilla to 1/4 tsp. so more of the lemon flavor would come through. I served them with a little meyer lemon juice sprinkled over top and some powdered sugar. It was reminiscent of lemon bread served that way.

Thank you for sharing the recipe. It was your beautiful photo found on Pinterest that made me want to make these. Mine were just as pretty as yours, and if a pancake batter could be lovely, that’s how I would describe it. Made the fluffiest, lightest pancakes I’ve ever had. My husband, who doesn’t usually like lemon flavor liked these because of the sweetness and airy texture. He had his with only powdered sugar.
