Of course, these days, more places are serving up breakfast versions, from thick souffle pancakes to American-inspired pancakes drizzled with maple syrup. Bon Bon Seika’s Pancake Langue de Chat cookies meet halfway between breakfast and dessert with their maple and white chocolate sandwich cookies that really taste like pancakes! The traditional Japanese snack, dorayaki (round castella patties sandwiching a filling, usually red bean paste), is often described as being similar to pancakes. Check out the Maple Syrup Hotcakes, an interesting fusion of Japanese tradition and Western-style pancakes!
