Whenever we go to Japan, we gorge on the fluffy souffle pancakes they serve in special pancake cafes there. Our favorite pancake cafe is Flipper’s, but we also like Gram and Happy Pancake.
We were recently in Singapore and I took a video of a stack of 3 jiggly Gram pancakes being served to Carla:
We’ve tried making these pancakes at home, but we can’t achieve the same kind of bounciness and fluffiness. So when I saw this tweet about a guy who cooked a pancake in his rice cooker, I did a Google search for “pancake in a rice cooker” and learned that this is something people actually do and now I’m excited to try it myself.
I had some trouble with cooking pancakes on the stove today so I thought of resorting to the rice cooker to cook the rest of the batter.
