I made the fluffiest pancakes ever! It’s so soft and fluffy, just like a baked sponge cake. These are actually Japanese style pancakes.
Its method is basically the same as chiffon cake – dry ingredients, then wet and make meringue. Instead of baking – it’s made stove top. It was quite fun to watch the pancakes soufflé!
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. I made sure it is sturdy enough to hold the pancake mix. I lined it with parchment paper, too.
You don’t need to use a round ring/mold though. It can be a free form pancake.
