Rice Cooker Pancake #SundayFunday

Looking for a fun, unique way to make and serve pancakes?  These Japanese pancakes are made in a rice cooker!  They turn out fluffy, delicious and serve 4-8 people, depending on their hunger and any side dishes being served.  Try a slice for breakfast this morning.  You will be glad you did.

The Sunday Funday Bloggers are sharing Pancake recipes today in honor of National Pancake Week....

Sunday Funday Logo

Stacy of Food Lust People Love is hosting today and invited us to join her saying:

"National Pancake Week is February 27 through March 5, 2022 so let's start the week out right by sharing our favorite pancake recipes from any cuisine or culture. Anything with a batter is fair game: dosas, griddle cakes, idli, okonomiyaki, alebele, banh xeo, palačinky, farinata, and traditional or crêpes de sarrasin, just to name a few! There are so many! Share your favorite."

Let's see what everyone is serving up today.......

Rice Cooker Pancake

This recipe, well technique really, was introduced to us from Japan.  It is an easy way to get that incredible, fluffy, souffle like pancakes that everyone is raving about.

Pancakes are a popular breakfast choice around here.  Frank is normally the pancake maker and ends up standing at the stove cooking away making his Blueberry Pancakes or Chocolate Chip Pancakes as we all eat them faster than he can plate them.  

When I make pancakes I try to find recipes that we can all enjoy at the same time like these Oven Baked Tropical Pancakes, German Pancakes, Apfelpfannkuchen or this Crepe Cake.  

I'm also in charge when we are trying a new pancake or I am in one of my health conscious modes and want to boost the nutritional content like these Buckwheat Pancakes, Coconut Flour Pancakes, and these Brain Booster Pancakes

And I could go on for days with crepe like pancakes from all over the world.  You can enjoy Palacsinta from Hungary or these American style crepes made with Sourdough starter.

There are so many different possibilities that I'm surprised we don't have a National Pancake month instead of just a week!!

  1. This is so clever, Wendy, and so much easier than traditional souffle pancakes! I cannot wait to try it. My rice cooker only has two settings, cook and warm so crossing my fingers it works!

    1. Let me know how it works out Stacy. I set mine on white rice setting and it was perfect.

  2. I couldn't wait to see how this was made after seeing your title! What an awesome pancake!

  3. Wow Wendy, a pancake made in the rice cooker.. amazing. Looks so soft and inviting. Can't wait to try out this recipe.

  4. Like the idea of using a rice cooker to make pancake, going to try them out in my rice cooker soon!

  5. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about your Rice Cooker Pancake adventure on your blog! The detailed steps and vibrant photos made it easy to follow along. I never thought a rice cooker could be so versatile. Your Sunday Funday pancake tradition is inspiring, and I can't wait to try this creative twist in my own kitchen. Thanks for sharing this delightful and innovative recipe. For more recipes you can visit Martabak Manis Singapore.
