Delicious pancakes are like urban myths. They’re elusive. Every person has a different opinion about their favourites.
Until fluffy soufflé pancakes arrived.
Pancakes sit on top of each other, plump and squishy like the downiest of pillows. Creamy whipped butter seeps slowly into the sponginess. Sometimes, there's a drizzle of Manuka honey, or, a feathery dusting of snow-like sugar.
It is impossible to resist pushing a fork into the dessert. Buttery goodness, billowed out like a balloon, like mouthfuls of cloud that melt at the tip of the tongue.
These are the soufflé pancakes, and if you’re a visitor in Japan, they are not to be missed.
