These fluffy and extra-thick Japanese pancakes are mouthwatering! They are soft and spongy, and a true indulgence. The super secret ingredient is the mayonnaise. It’s just emulsified oil and vinegar, and I promise it will make your pancakes thicker and fluffier; it gives it just the right “lift”. I use Kewpie® mayo, but you can try with any regular mayo. Please let me know what you think!
Combine milk and vinegar in a large bowl. Allow to sit until milk has soured, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, sift together flour, sugar, and baking powder in a separate bowl; set aside.
Beat egg whites in a glass, metal, or ceramic bowl with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
Add egg yolks and vanilla extract to the soured milk; mix until well combined and pour into the center of the flour mixture. Use a whisk to combine all ingredients. Add mayonnaise and stir until there are no lumps. Fold in egg whites.
Heat a griddle on the stovetop over medium-low heat and melt butter. Grease round pancake molds and place onto the buttered griddle. Fill each mold halfway with batter. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on the bottom and not too liquid across the top, 4 to 6 minutes. Flip each pancake and mold together. Cook until the other sides are golden and pancakes have doubled in thickness, 4 to 6 more minutes. Slide the molds off the pancakes.

Eat good breakfast to start the day had become a fabulous habit. It’s a best way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the fruit wakes me up and gives me power to take on the morning. The sweetness is more vilified as the root of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is best for your digestive system and helps keep you feeling full all day , and less likely grab a side food out of the vending machine before lunchtime.
Make fruit a morning habit is simple . Easy as put the fruit in your fridge next to the milk or on the bench next to your cereal pan , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll find it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
