What you'll do

In this class I will teach you how to make Japanese souffle pancakes from scratch. Japanese souffle pancakes are a light, fluffy, mouthwatering treat that are served in cafes all over Japan. These pancakes are a fun addition your breakfast, brunch or dessert repertoire. Since making these pancakes can be tricky, we will make the pancakes one at a time to practice and I will teach you all the tips you need to make the perfect pancakes. In total we will make 2 fluffy pancakes.

Please note: in order to meet Airbnb quality standards to keep class sizes small (no more than 10 participants per public class), guests should book one spot for each person who will be participating in the experience and not have multiple people participate per device/location. If you have multiple people who will participate from a single device/location, please book a spot for each of them.

This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message!

What to bring

  • hand mixer or stand mixer (hand whisk can be used instead to make meringue but electric mixer is much easier)

I was born and raised in a rural community in southern Japan and have been passionate about cooking from a very young age. As is common in Japan, I grew up in a home with three generations and spent all my time with my grandmother in the kitchen. She taught me everything I know about cooking.

I host two other Airbnb Japanese cooking experiences with over 195 reviews, all five stars. I was awarded the Bay Area "Quality Champion" award by Airbnb for receiving the highest quality scores on my cooking experiences. I have also hosted many virtual team building activities for companies all over the world, and am the cooking instructor at the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California where I offer online classes. My goal is to provide you with the best possible experience where you learn how to make authentic Japanese food.

Kenji is so knowledgable! I have tried to make these types of pancakes before and failed miserably. Kenji made it something I can actually do

I arranged a private version of this class for my daughter's birthday activity. She and her 8 year old friends had a good time. Yes, parental assistance was needed, and not everyone got their pancakes fluffy, but everyone enjoyed the activity and Kenji was super patient and always encouraging and calem with the kids and helped them adapt when the kids messed up parts here and there. In the end, everyone had pancakes to eat and had a good time together.

Kenji is so good! Very patience, he explained every step of the way. Very accommodating for a dairy allergy. I love his class. You will not be disappointed. Also the Japanese souffle pancake was the bomb.

After having seen the pancakes a few times online, it was time to prove myself as a cook. Under the guidance of Kenji it was super easy, even for inexperienced cooks. I was given tips that I didn't know yet and that I really want to apply. I really enjoyed it and I will take more courses with Kenji!

We had a fun time doing Japanese Souffle making with Kenji. He was great at explaining the various steps and patient at helping those who struggled. We'd definitely love to take another class with him.
