Jessie's Recipe of the Week: Plant-based Souffle Pancakes
You’ve heard of pancakes, but have you heard of their fluffier counterpart — souffle pancakes? Originating from Japan, these thick, fluffy pancakes have been the craze these last few years. Traditionally, these pancakes are made with egg whites and dairy milk to create their thickness and fluffy texture. However, today Jessie will be bringing to you a plant-based version of these mouth-watering pancakes that involves no eggs or dairy milk but is still equally as thick and fluffy! These are perfect for desserts (We personally love them with fresh fruit and some syrup) but you can also have them savory if you’d like!
