This is a yummy-in-my-tummy snack, which is quite easy to make. But hey, pancakes have always been yummy on its own anyway. Deviating from our usual pancakes, Golden Pancakes has an addition of surprise sponge secretly tucked inside. You can choose to make them in square or rectangle shapes. And of course this is an interesting way to modify your basic sponge cakes, giving them a delightful twist in taste and presentation. During cell on Friday, we ended up eating them with ice cream. Verdict: Thumbs up! Greg calls them The Imperial Golden Pillows.
