Japanese Style Puff Pancakes

Vote for this contest contender!

Everyone always asks me for this recipe so I thought I would share it here. These are a favorite as far as pancakes go. Japanese style pancakes are always about twice the height of regular ones, if not more. They're velvety and creamy, very much like a sponge cake. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 5 minutes plus 10 minutes wait time

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes including wait time

Yield: 2 servings




  1. Whisk together flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, vanilla, salt and sugar.
  3. Pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients and stir to combine.

  5. Heat a griddle and melt some butter. If you're using an electric griddle, 350F is the perfect temperature. Grease shape cutter and place on griddle.
  6. Fill shape cutter halfway with batter. Cook for about five minutes or until large bubbles start to form. As you can see, the batter rises up to the top!

  8. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes until the bottom is golden.
  9. Serve with syrup, fruit, or cream... or all of them, like I do. Yum!
