Didn’t find it difficult to make as the steps illustrated by you on your blog were clear and concise (super love your blog). Having said that, my first attempt on the pancake was a failure. The reason for that was, I used my AMC pan to fry the pancake, and it probably was too hot and the batter stuck to the pan with gusto and the whole thing turned into some kind of mushy eggy scrambled lookalike.
Anyway, I then heat up my non-stick frying pan.. and it was a breeze from then on. I made 4 portions on my first attempt (4 eggs : 4 tbsp flour : 4 tbsp sugar). Got a large family to feed
The pancake was really good. My aunts find it very eggy but I kind of like it that way. Light, fluffy and eggy. I can probably fry the bacon a little bit such that it adds more flavor n texture to the whole thing.
Here’s my pancake and thank you for your recipe.

Hi Wendy my name is Rasya, i would like to participate ur Sponge Pancake Giveaways entry, i already try ur Sponge Pancake and it taste good...at first, i’m afraid that it would not turn good but after i make the batter i know it will turn out very2 good and it taste delicious even my 1year old son really like it too....thanks Wendy for sharing this ;D Here are my version OREO Sponge Pancake hope u like it too ;D
This are the ingredients i use ;D simple as ABC...wallaaaa
2 tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp all purpose flour (I used 1.5 tbsp flour + ½ tbsp finely crush oreo- i use 4 pcs oreo without cream and put in food processor, just use ½ tbsp )
A bit of butter for frying
Chocolate rice and ice cream (i use chocolate wall brands ice cream if u have vanilla also can yummmmy)
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.
7.Cover with lid and cook until sides look golden, and center of pancake is almost cooked. Sprinkle chocolate rice toppings as desired. Cook for a while until the choc rice slightly melted.
8. Flip into half or flip onto plate and serve with ice cream, sprinkle oreo crush n choc rice.
This are my version OREO SPONGE PANCAKE adapted from Sponge Pancake Wendy. Can simply eat like this...so fluffy and crunchy when u bite at choc rice.
Or u can serve it with ice cream and sprinkle it with oreo and more choc rice..kids will love it...trust me =D
Eat it while still warm, the pancake soft and fluffy, choc rice and extra crush oreo make it lil’bit cruncy and serve with melted ice cream is sooooo delicious...super2 yummy =)

I have followed your recipe and and make into three mini size pancake, one layer sandwiched with home made strawberry jam filling ( I have made a batch last week and it is time to use it up) and another layer with sliced banana and top with two scoop of ice cream.
1 egg-separate the yolk and flour
1 tablespoon of plain flour
1 tablespoon of castor sugar
1 tsp of oil (not in your recipe but I added to add moistness to the sponge pancake)
1) Separate the egg white and manually whisked till soft peak( lazy to use electric mixer as one egg white is too little to whip up by electric mixer)
2) Combined the oil, egg yolk and sifted flour till smooth.
3) Fold in the beaten egg white to the egg yolk mixture.
4) Heat up the frying pan (I used those mini size for frying one scrambled egg type) without brushing any oil, pour in the batter and cook till the bottom is golden brown , flip over and cook for one second. Remove.
Note: this recipe give me three small pancake.
I layered the bottom layer of pancake with home made strawberry jam fillings, and the middle layer with sliced bananas, and top with two scoop of ice cream. My kids finished it up in no time, a way to get the kids to eat some fruits, I guess.
Would like to try out some other variation if got time tonight after work.
Thank you for organizing this event as I really enjoyed the process of trying out the recipe and having fun of playing with the recipe as well.
