Method:

1. Put oil, yolk, gula melaka syrup, milk and salt in a large bowl and stir until all blended. Add the flour and stir again with a whisk until smooth. Set aside.
2. Beat the egg whites until foamy then gradually add sugar to beat until firm peaks form.
3. Add 1/3 of the meringue into the yolk batter and using the hand whisk to mix until combined. Add the next 1/3 portion and whisk again. Finally, add the last portion, whisk briefly before switching to spatula to scoop the batter from bottom and fold up on to the batter to make sure all are combined and no more yolk batter can be seen.
