We love pancakes here in the office – especially Canadian style with maple syrup. But if you haven’t got a sweet tooth, or are a little bored of the classic lemon and sugar, why not get a little adventurous and try some pancakes from around the world?
We chatted to a few of our well-travelled specialists in the office about the pancakes they’ve sampled across the globe.
Different types of pancakes around the world:
Dorayaki in Japan
Phoenix, our Japan travel specialist, is a big fan of Dorayaki – small honey-flavoured pancakes sandwiched together with earthy and sweet red-bean paste (anko). The name translates to baked gong, due to the round shape, and they come in a variety of flavours.
“If you’re not a fan of bean paste, they can also be filled with sweeter flavours – custard, matcha cream or chestnuts. They’re a great on-the-go snack, and so tasty with Japanese green tea.” Itadakimasu!
