Mochi Pancakes

    Mochi pancakes are perfect for breakfast or a snack. You will be surprised not only by how easy they are to prepare, but also by their appearance.

    Mochi pancakes’ standout ingredient is glutinous rice flour, which makes them a little moist and viscous inside—this is their distinguishing feature.

    One of the best things about this type of pancake is that they’re easy to make perfectly round thanks to the thick dough. You’ll love watching the pancake double or triple in size after you turn it over.

    You can serve mochi pancakes with any syrup, as well as with berries, nuts, chocolate and fruits. Pancakes are great at absorbing syrup or honey, so there’s no point in making them too sweet—when they’re soaked in something sweet, they taste even better.

    What You Need to Make Mochi Pancakes

    Pancake ingredients


    • Wheat flour
    • Glutinous rice flour
    • Baking powder
    • Baking soda
    • Sugar – any sugar will do, however, if you use brown sugar, it will have a caramel flavor.
    • Salt
    • Egg – can be large or medium
    • Soy milk – can be replaced with another lactose-free product or regular milk.
    • Unsalted butter (melted)
    • Vanilla extract

    How To Make Mochi Pancakes

    In a deep bowl, sifted wheat and rice flour, then add sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix thoroughly with a whisk until all ingredients are completely combined.

    Mixing dry ingredients in a bowl

    In another bowl, mix egg and melted butter first, then add soy milk and vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly with a whisk.

    Mixing wet ingredients in a bowl

    Combine dry and wet ingredients in one bowl, and stir until all lumps are gone. Let the dough stand for 10 minutes, after which you can start frying the pancakes.

    Combining wet and dry ingredients

    Heat up a non-stick pan on low heat. Don’t grease the pan. Spoon some of the dough into the pamn to form a small, round pancake. Fry on low heat for 2-3 minutes.

    Frying pancakes in a pan
