The Restaurant Secret to Making the World's Fluffiest Pancakes

A good pancake is a thing of beauty. It's crispy at its lacy edges and pillow-soft in its middle. And fluffy. A really good pancake should be so light and fluffy that it melts in your mouth. Here is a restaurant trick for making the fluffiest, airiest pancakes in the world that we'll need to try (and taste) to believe.

Chef Clayton Miller at Wit and Wisdom restaurant in Baltimore folds not one or two, but three whipped egg whites into his signature pancakes. He then cooks the pancakes very briefly on the stovetop before transferring them to the oven where they rise even further.

Chef Miller calls them "soufflé pancakes" and it's easy to see why. These sound like pancake nirvana: tender, airy, and perfect. He also promises that these pancakes won't collapse or sink like a traditional soufflé will do.
