How To Make The Fluffiest Japanese Hotcakes In The World

Might as well learn to cook the ultimate comfort food in this time of isolation.

Can you say thicc?! Lol, I love these japanese pancakes. They're so dense and fluffy you get more hotcake in each bite. What's not to love??

Below is a recipe that serves 2, feel free to keep them all for yourself though.

Note: You will need ring molds, like the ones used to cook English muffins.


  • 1 cup plain flour

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • 11/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 11/4 cups buttermilk

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

  • Fruits of your choice (I use blueberries, strawberries & blackberries)

  • Maple syrup, as needed

  • Canola spray


1. In a large bowl, add the eggs, milk and vanilla. Beat the mixture with a whisk for about 1 minute, until light and fluffy. Add in remaining ingredients and whisk until the batter is smooth.

2. Let the batter sit for about 15 minutes. The batter will thicken during this time.
