As a Japanese fanatic, when I first tried these incredibly fluffy pancakes, I knew I had to learn the recipe and try making it at home too! If you can't try them because you don't live in Japan, try making them at home for a lovely Sunday brunch!

American pancakes
As a pancake lover, I don't discriminate, love is love.
But what's the difference between these two fluffy pancakes? They're both just asking to be loved.
Well, American pancakes are dense and often quite sweet. Usually, they are served with a big chunk of butter and covered in delectable Maple Syrup.
Whereas Japanese pancakes are sky-high, but they are not so thick, actually, they are quite fluffy as they are made with a meringue or buttermilk.
Simply put, Japanese pancakes are the love child of American pancakes and chiffon cake.

You can also try the recipe below and see for yourself! Yum!
