Of all the fabulous things to come out of Japan (Harajuku style, sushi and ramen recipes, to name a few), the Japanese cuisine darling that鈥檚 blowing our minds the most these days is the Japanese-style pancake. Thick, fluffy, sweet and packed with doughy goodness, these aren鈥檛 the kind of breakfast noms you鈥檒l get from your average pancake recipes. Nope, these take the word 鈥渇luffy鈥 to the NEXT LEVEL. Not surprisingly, Instagram is going nuts for Japanese pancakes too, whether they鈥檙e coated in sprinkles or dripping with gooey syrup. Here are 12 of the most drool-worthy pics to grace our Insta feeds.

1. Blueberry Morning: Blueberries and a light coating of syrup lend flavor and sweetness to these super delicious-looking cakes. And how 鈥檅out that crispy, buttery browning on top? SO perfect.

2. Birthday Cake Pancakes: Every day is someone鈥檚 birthday, so start off your morning by celebrating! These delicious hot cakes are topped with sugary frosting and rainbow sprinkles 鈥 and if we鈥檙e not mistaken, there are also some sprinkles baked right into these pillowy cakes.

3. Get Fruity: These hearty cakes are topped with bananas, raspberries, blueberries and melon. Add syrup on top to really perfect the sweetness factor.

4. Light 鈥榥鈥 Fluffy: Of course, you don鈥檛 really *need* fancy toppings. Japanese pancakes can hold their own just fine. These particular cakes are topped with butter and served alongside some syrup and whipped cream for a classic combination.

5. Nutella Coconut Cakes: Yep, you read that right. These hot cakes are topped with gooey Nutella and coconut. There are also some chocolate chips thrown into the mix, so the glass of milk served with this brekky will be totally apropos.

6. Strawberry Shortcake: A classic pancake topper, strawberry is the icing on the cake (er, pancake) here. We also spot some more fresh strawberries in the background for extra munching. Yum!

7. Coffee Cake: Like any other pancake, Japanese-style cakes are PERFECT with a cup of hot coffee. If you鈥檙e not big on syrup, you can also sweeten them up with powdered sugar, as shown here.

8. Ice Cream Cake: Take your pancakes from breakfast to dessert simply by adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Bonus points for adding some green garnish鈥 we think mint would work perfectly.

Les pancakes japonais vous connaissez聽? Moi non jusqu鈥櫭 tomber sur une vid茅o il y a quelques jours. Les am茅ricains avaient les pancakes bien moelleux, les japonais ont voulu aller encore plus loin聽! Par curiosit茅 j鈥檃vais envie de tester (faut dire aussi que mon homme a un petit peu insist茅 aussi pour que je les fasse聽!). C鈥檈st super moelleux, un d茅lice. 馃槺馃槏 (int茅rieur sur la photo suivante) Par contre c鈥檈st un petit fastidieux 脿 faire par rapport 脿 des pancakes classiques, mais je pense que je vais en refaire de temps en temps. Passez une bonne journ茅e. 馃槝 Pour 3 gros pancakes de 6cm de diam猫tre 88g de lait + 2g de jus de citron 1 艙uf 15g de sucre 5g d鈥檃r么me vanille 1 pinc茅e de sel 90g de farine 2g de levure chimique 1g de bicarbonate 10min avant de commencer, m茅langer le lait et le citron pour que le lait caille. Ensuite, mettre dans un blender ce m茅lange, l鈥櫯搖f, le sucre, la vanille et le sel. Mixer quelques secondes. Rajouter les poudres puis remixer. Faire chauffer votre po锚le sur feu moyen-doux. Huiler un cercle en metal (l'emporte pi猫ce rond qui sert 脿 dresser g茅n茅ralement) et le poser sur la po锚le. Remplir le moule 脿 la moiti茅. Laisser cuire 4min. Retourner d茅licatement le moule avec une spatule et faire cuire 3min de l鈥檃utre c么t茅. Ne remplissez pas trop le moule, 莽a gonfle 脿 la cuisson et 莽a ne cuit pas bien au centre s鈥檌l y en a trop.聽聽Verser du sirop d鈥櫭﹔able sur le dessus et d茅guster聽! Vous pouvez 茅galement les faire sans moule, ils seront plus plats mais tout aussi bon. Homemade japanese style pancakes.聽extra fluffy ! 馃槺聽馃槏 Have a great day. 馃槝 #japanesepancakes #lesrecettesdepauline #pancake #pancakes #pancakesforbreakfast #healthybreakfast #healthybody #healthyfood #healthylife #healthyfoodporn #mangersain #petitdejeuner #petitdejeunersain #breakfast #deliciousbreakfast #homemade #eatclean #fitfamily #fitgirl #instafood #instacuisine #instapetitdej #instalike #instafit #instagood #foodphotography #foodgasm #foodphoto #foodporn #pancaketower

9. Tall Order: Check out the size of THESE pancakes! They鈥檙e so thick, it might be difficult to eat more than one. But we have faith in ourselves.

10. Sapporo Style: If you thought the best thing to come out of Sapporo was their beer, think again. This tower of pancake-y goodness is loaded with chocolate cream, bananas, whipped cream and fudge 鈥 and it鈥檚 topped wth cocoa powder and an orange for good measure.

11. Grab 鈥榥鈥 Go: That鈥檚 right 鈥 apparently you can take pancakes with you to-go. These cakes come wrapped in paper and ready to eat on your way into work. Really redefines pancakes, right?

12. Figs and Berries: Finally, this elegant and refined pancake comes with a light maple glaze, and is served with a fig and a blackberry on top. It鈥檚 also a little bit smaller, and therefore lighter, than most of the cakes on our list. Yes, we鈥檒l say it: It鈥檚 basically dessert.
