Japanese souffle pancakes with chocolate sauce

If you asked me what my favorite sweet is, I would say chocolate. So today, let’s indulge ourselves with these Japanese pancakes with chocolate sauce.

You may wonder, why don’t you just add chocolate to the pancake batter. While that must also be delicious, Japanese pancakes are known as very fluffy pancakes, but they are delicate at the same time and they shrink easily as time goes by. Chocolate contains fat that can break the fluffiness of pancakes. So let’s bake the original Japanese pancakes then pour on top as much chocolate sauce as we want.
