About our Japanese Soufflé Pancakes

Unlike traditional pancakes, Japanese Soufflé Pancakes are more fluffy, airy, thicker, and usually smaller in size.  They require more "techniques" and "patience" to make; not only the batter is harder to make than traditional American pancakes, but also the cooking part could be very tricky.

They require so much precision in making and even one slight mistake could ruin the whole batch of pancakes.

There are many recipes you can find online and at Motto Tea Cafe, we follow strictly to the original Japanese recipes - thanks to the Japanese founder of Motto who tried almost all Japanese pancake stores in Japan!
