Japanese soufflé pancakes

Ben Dearnley (main)

Sweet or savoury? Breakfast, lunch or dessert? Pancakes are as versatile as they come.

For those more inclined to traditional homemade pancakes for the ultimate weekend breakfast treat, where the success really comes down to the pancake batter of wet ingredients (milk, melted butter, eggs) and dry ingredients (all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar), we have ample recipes for fluffy pancakes.

But if you prefer savoury over sweet, you’ll want to try our recipes for okonomiyaki, banh xeo and kimchi noodle pancakes.

Here are our best pancake recipes of the sweet and savoury kind.
