Japanese souffle pancakes recipe

We don’t really enjoy pancakes that much, pancake day has never really been a big thing for us, we aren’t one for ordering pancakes for breakfast when we are out and I never cook them for breakfast. That is until now.

Mr B heard of another way of cooking pancakes that we will without a doubt be cooking again and perhaps for breakfasts too!
These pancakes are light, fluffy and delicious!

The recipe my husband found suggests using crumpet rings to make them circular and fluffier as they will rise in the ring. I didn’t have crumpet rings so like most things, I adapted and used whatever I had in my kitchen at the time.
