Japanese Soufflé Pancakes

I refrained from cooking these for a long time as I thought they would be hard to cook but they turned out to be easier than anticipated. I also made with GF flour and it works just as well as there is very little flour needed. The recipe I used:

This butter chicken is worth the extra steps and I thoroughly recommend it. The butter chicken recipe: The Naan Bread:  I don’t have a pizza stone. I set my oven to bottom heat only with fan. Turn the oven on as high as it will go with a baking tray in it. Place …
