Delicious Pancake, Simply the best!!!!

 I don't believe that we really need something fancy to be happy, even you know that I love to make some fancy dessert haha. But there's a time that all I want is a simple and delicious dessert to brighten me up ^^.

I still sleeping with the book  .............. , after making the "Pâte feuilletée inversée" from this book, there're a lot of other recipe that I want to try. One important thing about this book that I have to say is, it's simple. The recipe is not too complicate and many of them can be called "too simple", and it's the problem for some people who think that the book from Pierre Hermé had to be "more complex". 
But I start to understand the word "Infiniment", it means "extremely"(or infinitely), and "extremely" doesn't have to be something complicated. Delicious snacks which you can enjoy at any time of the day and not too hard to make at home can be something "extremely great!!". So, I think this book is made for that reason. 
Think about the pancake, you can enjoy it as breakfast, brunch, afternoon snack or a late night meal ^^, well, it's really up to you. So, it will be great to have a good recipe that's easy to make and absolutely delicious, haha. It takes a little time to make too!!
I made 2 batches of this pancake yesterday, and I think that you will love it too ^^. The batter is easy to mix, just whisk, whisk, whisk (first liquid, egg, and sugar, second, flour third egg white), fold and fry and Voilà, you get delicious pancakes.
These pancakes are very rich with the cream in the base then lighten up with the egg whites, that gives the pancake its puffiness. So, it's great to enjoy it while it's warm from the frying pan but I just can't tell you that you can have it as a breakfast or brunch, you can enjoy it any time of the day because it's too delicious to have a rule for it.
