Homemade Japanese Pancakes

These might just be the fluffiest pancakes of all time.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 5 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Butter for frying
  • 6 strips bacon
  • Pancake syrup, to serve

Steps

  1. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, vanilla, salt and sugar.
  3. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir to combine.
  4. Heat a griddle, swirling around some unsalted butter. Line muffin rings with butter, place on griddle and fill halfway with batter. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until large bubbles start to form. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes until the bottom is golden.
  5. While the pancakes are cooking, place the bacon on a tray and grill until crispy.
  6. Stack the cooked pancakes, then layer the bacon on top, and finally drizzle with syrup.
