Introduction: Making the Fluffiest Pancake Ever

Picture of Making the Fluffiest Pancake Ever

I made the fluffiest pancakes ever! They're so soft and fluffy, just like a baked sponge cake. Japanese-style pancake!

Although you can use ordinary pancake mix from the supermarket, the ingredients for making the Japanese style pancake are easy to find and even easier to put together.

To make the pancake perfectly shaped, you might want to use is a round ring/mold. I wanted to make a 3 inch tall and wide pancake, all I had was the 2 inch with an inch depth. I made my own round mold that's safe to put on a pan by using aluminum foil, making it sturdy enough to hold the pancake mix. I lined it with parchment paper, too.

Here's the recipe:

Makes about 4

Ingredients

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup sugar

a pinch of salt

1/4 cup milk

4 egg yolks

4 egg whites

a pinch of cream of tartar

3 tbsp sugar

Method:

1. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl.

2. Create a well in the center and add the milk and egg yolks, mix to combine.

3. Make the meringue by beating the egg whites with the cream of tartar. Gradually add the sugar. Beat until stiff peak forms.

4. Fold the meringue into the batter in 2 additions.

5. Place the pan on the stove and set it to medium heat. Brush it lightly with cooking oil.

6. Once the pan is warm enough, place a round ring/mold on the pan and pour the pancake batter.

7. Cook for about 10 minutes, you can flip the pancake once the batter is no longer too wobbly and has set. Check the bottom of the pancake if it has browned by slightly and gently lifting one side of the pancake.

8. After flipping the pancake, continue to cook the pancake for another 10 minutes. You can also use a cake tester to check for doneness.

9. Have it with whipped cream with berries/fruits or maple syrup.

Enjoy!

Do you think it can be made fluffy with a pancake maker?

I usually use it with Kodiak flapjack mix

does it have a hinge? will the cooker/baker allow for the pancake to rise? thats what I would look at :)

Hello! I'm glad you checked this out.
That's a good question. I think the method would work best with a mix where you still need eggs to be added. The fluffiness comes from the egg white /meringue being incorporated to the batter. As for the flip over pancake...For some reason, the link doesn't go through. But I'm thinking you are referring to the pancake maker with an enclosure? Correct me if I'm wrong. But, To be honest it might not have the same effect. .
Cheers!
