    The toilet paper thing was mostly people panicking but also there was a real cause as well. Offices and workplaces don’t buy commercial 2 ply toilet paper. And groceries don’t sell those massive office style toilet roles. So with so many people at home all the time, there genuinely was more need for at home style toilet paper than there used to be.

    so how do you like your pancakes? medium rare?

    The tasty pancake, they basically just bake the pancake then pretend it's cooked in a stove

    I'd love to see you try this recipe. fishows.info/post/ZqOnhbbWfHqrudU/videot.html From what I've seen from you, that ice-cream shouldn't ship up like that.

  • Paul Round

    This is obviously never going to work, there is no way to get enough heat into that much batter in a pan without burning the bottom of each pancake. This recipe would work if the pancakes were baked in an oven to give even heating all round but then they aren't 'pan' cakes they are just cakes. Essentially these should cook like a souffle as that is kind of what they are.

    Forgo the molds and just make sure the batter is dense enough to somewhat keep its shape. Then before covering the pancakes with the lid, add a little bit of water to the pan. The added water will evaporate making a steam chamber to slightly cook the top and sides without browning which will give it more stability when you flip it.

    If you want pancakes like the one from the Buzzfeed video, get a small rice cooker (I have a tiny 2-serving one because I'm single) and pour some pancake batter in there. It's not like the really fluffy ones, it's more like a thick pancake? But it's nice.

  • uenachan

    I've been trying this for years the one I saw from tasty and it doesn't work that's why i give up making souffle pancakes, this is a big help for me thanks! now i have hope 😊

    One of the things I've learned since watching this video is that a lot of Box Mix Pancakes have commercials stabilizers in them already. This may be one situation where using a box mix might make sense.

    I really love your debunking videos. But in this case, you are very far from the truth. If you've watched the behind the scenes of tasty, you will know that what they do takes time. Sometimes, they have like ten fails just to perfect it, and it even takes days. So sorry but in the case, you're wrong😒😒😒

    You can actually buy Gellan Gum (Xanthan) from Amazon. Still a useful alternative.

  • amprie

    its not your recipe though you didnt change anything from how they are already cooked fishows.info/post/e5WMjLC0h56Zs7M/videot.html unless you think cooking them in an oven merit enough for you to claim the recipe as your own

  • amyleefan85

    Lol seeing good ol' Naomi Jon here was unexpected xD but I love the recipe! Would it be possible to use Xanthan or Guar gum powder too? We use those at work but we just do cold stuff (delicatessen like mayonnaise, potatoe salads etc.) so I don't know how this would turn out when baking it.

  • RosieWeasley

    Tried one of these from an ice cream shop. It took them 30 minutes hidden away in the back to make it, and I didn’t like it at all, even eating it with ice cream. Some people must like super eggy fluffy flour blobs, but I’d rather just eat eggs if that’s what it’s gonna taste like.

  • Jack

    My molecular gastronomy knowledge is pretty limited, but I'd hazard a guess and say they're adding locust bean gum as it wouldn't affect the viscosity until the cooking process. As it cooks, it activates and acts as a thickener, making a more viscose batter to trap air pockets and stablise the finished product.

    I say turn your oven on 350 after it being in the pan for 10 minutes. Put it in the oven for 10 to 15 more minutes. I bet that works!

    In Japan, they use Xanthan gum as stablizer but I think your hack is better; it's more natural. I will defenitely try it

    i dont know how these people feel good about wasting food and even kicking it , wtf there r people who dont get food . so sad.

      And should not matter where i am coming from we r all in this universe with disparities and inequality in every walk of life things like this shows a wasteful and unapologetic mindset

    • Niharika

      Hi lily I understand what you are saying but still it is wasteful in my humble opinion and kicking food is not Something very cool

    • lily

      I understand where you're coming from but whenever you learn something new waste is always a hurdle to begin with, it can be frustrating and expensive but its to ultimately improve a craft. The production of art supplies negatively impacts the environment for instance but to stop using them altogether because of that, rather than finding green solutions and recycling, would be a waste of what we DO have and can be said for almost anything, even the technology you watched this on. It's awful people don't have access to food but it's no reason, if you have the means, to not develop your skills as unless you planned on feeding them yourself, it wouldn't make anyone any less hungry but if you don't mess up you wont get better.
