It goes without saying that Japanese food is among the most premium and luxurious of them all. Just take a look around town, restaurants that serve Japanese food are among the most classiest and priciest of places. That being said, Japanese food isn’t really hard to make. If you’re unfamiliar to the Japanese cuisine then you may be thinking it’s a very intricate and complicated cuisine, but that is not the case. In fact, many of the dishes are quite simple to make and it is in its simplicity where luxury is found. But today, we share that luxury with you, here is how you can make Fluffy Japanese Pancakes:
- 150g self-rising flour
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp golden caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp rapeseed, sunflower or grapeseed oil
- 180ml milk
- dash of vanilla extract
- oil spray for cooking or a mild-flavored cooking oil (whatever you use in the batter)
- maple syrup
- ice cream
- crisp bacon
These items are very easy to find and are readily available at a number of stores. Once you have acquired them, proceed to the next step.
- Start by stirring the flour and the baking powder into a bowl and adding the sugar. Make a crater type shape in the centre and then add the eggs and oil. Mix them into the flour and then add the milk gradually, utilize the whisk to beat the mixture well. Or if you want to make things easier, use a blender. Once you have a consistent mixture, add in the vanilla as well.
- Grab a non-stick pan and put it on a low hear, then proceed to put one or two non-stick crumpet rings in the pan. Use the oil spray and lightly cover the surface ith the oil including the insides of the rings too. Fill them up 3/4th of their capacity. Cover the pan with the lid and let them cook for 10 minutes on a very low heat. Once the time is up, the top of the pancakes should be covered in bubbles and the edges should look dry. If you don’t get the result within 10 minutes, increase the heat by just a little bit and let it cook some more until desired conditions are met.
- Now we get to turn them over, but we have to make sure to do it very carefully. In order to have a clean flip, lift the each pancake along with its ring on to the lid, and then invert the pan over them and flip the whole thing back. This will give you a clean flip with no ‘accidents’. Cook this side for 1-2 minutes and they should be done. Keep them warm while you cook the rest of the batter up and then serve them. Stack them up and serve with the topping of your choice, and voila.
