Originating from Japan, handcrafted soufflé pancakes are traditionally served at weddings and other celebrations, and a popular pancake craze.
I’m sure you have childhood memories of waking up on a Saturday and looking up at a stack of pancakes on your plate. I assure you, this is not your basic pancake.
Japanese soufflé pancakes are traditionally light airy pancakes. Egg yolks and egg whites are separated, and the whites are beaten to make the meringue. Just like how you would make savory and sweet souffle or chiffon cakes.
These fluffy Japanese Souffle Pancakes are like eating cottony clouds that seem to melt in your mouth.
