Fluffy Japanese Style Soufflé Pancakes

Okay, I tried the famous fluffy-Japanese-pancakes so many times and finally I can give you the tips to make real fluffy ones. Because not every time we got that fluff.

It is not difficult but it takes time to make your pancakes look pretty. So first, make sure you heated your pan in advance to medium heat and you are using a non-stick pan.

I recommend whisking egg whites as your last step before combining the mixtures to avoid it getting liquid, and make sure you whisk it enough until a stiff peak form.

Every time you place one scoop into the pan with a drizzle of water, wait three minutes, then add another scoop, drizzle water and wait another 3 minutes before flipping them. If you think the fluff is not enough and the bottom of your pancakes aren’t burning then you can add the third scoop. After the last three minutes, flip them around and cook for another 3-4 minutes and you’re done.

They will lose their fluff a little bit before serving but don’t worry, they will still look pretty. 😍
