I’ve never had Japanese Soufflé Pancakes until I visited Fufu Pancake Cafe in Vancouver – and I was pleasantly surprised! Soft, fluffy and slightly sweet, these amazingly moist pancakes definitely made my day.

What Are Japanese Soufflé Pancakes?

Japanese soufflé pancakes are fluffy and airy variations of traditional pancakes, originating from Japan. They are tall, with a fluffy texture, which is achieved by incorporating whipped egg whites into the batter. This also creates a light and airy consistency that is reminiscent of a soufflé, hence the name.

And Fufu Pancake Cafe has some of the best soufflé pancakes ever – with a wide assortment of both sweet and savory ones.

On my last visit there, I ordered the Tiramisu Soufflé Pancake, which came with a stack of 2 pancakes topped with a delicious custard topping and a crispy, crunchy caramelized sugar crust on top.

When I bit into the pancakes, they were fluffy and airy – which made them feel so light, and yet the creamy custard added just the perfect amount of moistness and smooth milky texture.

And it wasn’t overly sweet either – it was the perfect balance of subtle sweetness and the richness of the batter. My daughter (who is not too fond of overly sweet things), order the regular Sweet Soufflé Pancakes thought they were perfect.

My wife thoroughly enjoyed the Smoked Salmon and Avocado Pancakes. They came packed with thick-sliced smoked salmon, a perfectly poached egg, layered onto the pancakes – sitting atop a bed of organic green salad. If you love savory breakfast dishes – this is one you can’t miss.

We also shared the Mixed Fruit Pancakes that came topped with classic whipped cream and an assortment of delicious fruit.

Other Food Items

As a bakery/cafe, Fufu also has a delightful pastry bar with all kinds of baked goods, like the Nori Salmon Cream Cheese Scone and the Everything Miso Scone.
