    Attempting this using coconut flour and Red Mill 'egg white substitute' for egg white powder. Yolk mix comes out far pastier, so that touch of meringue is a great tip. Totally not getting the big fluffy mountains, but managing some halfway decent hills, all considered.

    "And of course toilet paper supplies are running low. Why? Why do people need more toilet paper in lockdown? I don't get that.."

    I wonder if it wouldn't have a bit more sweetness if you agar powder instead of the egg white powder as the stabilizer. Unlike gelatin it has a bit of a natural sweetness, its great for making jellies that unlike gelatin don't melt at room temperature, and can even be used to make jellies without heat lending itself to making jellies with carbonated ingredients without losing the "bubbles". I've so far have only used it once as a replacement to gelatin as a stabilizer in a whipped cream frosting and it did work wonderfully and even better than when I made it in the past with gelatin. I know they say gelatin is flavorless, but yeah its not and to me it has a strange mouth feel like there's Vaseline in the frosting I just really don't like it. And find agar to still be largely flavorless in as much as gelatin is, with the hint of flavor being sweet, not a hint of bitter like gelatin, and also lacking in the Vaseline mouth feels, but also with a higher tightening when used in frosting over gelatin (a little bit goes a long way about 1/2 to 3/4) of what you would use for gelatin to get the same effect. Further it doesn't require the "blooming" that gelatin does so no added water too. Which is what made me think of it when you mentioned the egg white powder.

    One Filipino Celebrity Chef tried to make the Japanese Fluffy Pancake for his pregnant wife and he failed a lot of times... the last attempt was somewhat successful, it rised and was jiggly but not pretty as the store bought one... But his wife enjoyed it... :-) My mother made one before and I saw her use gelatin . But then again I prefer the regular pancake... so easy to make...

    What a surprise, Buzzfeed and their affiliates don't only lie about politics.

  35. GPS08

    GPS082 kun oldin

    @Jerry Remig Bruh, they (Tasty) literally flipped an already cooked pancake. Also, I just watched both videos you mentioned. Seymour changed Tasty's recipe in order to achieve what he did. The point this video is making, is that by following Tasty's recipe word for word you get what we saw here, a failure lump of raw batter. If you change the recipe, like Seymour did, then you make something edible. Also, Seymours point that they both require the same effort falls really flat. They don't. The oven method is way easier. Seymour makes it sound like pre-heating the oven is time consuming, when that in itself is kinda of a lie. You can preheat your oven while making the batter, plus, you can make multiple ones in the oven while on the pan you can only make 1 at a time, not to mention having to juggle around just to flip the darn thing. And for the time needed to cook it thoroughly in the pan, once you're done with pancake #2, pancake #1 is cold then you either let #2 cool off too or you're going to eat 1 hot 1 cold, which isn't very pleasant. So yes, this was Buzzfeed lying, as per usual. Something I'm accustomed to, I'm just surprised it's not just politics they lie about, it's just about anything that gets them clicks, views and shares.

  36. Jerry Remig

    Tasty in one of the few parts of buzzfeed i find actually fine but its hard to be contraversial when your channel is just for food topics unless you do what bon appetit did

  37. Jerry Remig

    Jerry Remig2 kun oldin

    actually david seymour did a video responding to this because he tests recipes on his channel all the time and he found it convenient ann only mentions channel who failed this recipe when he has done this recipe and mentioned how he got it to be stable and cook properly and the followed up by remaking the buzzfeed recipe and making anns recipe to see which was better so i think honestly it wasnt buzzfeed lying more like their video was not enough information to easily recreate they should of been way more specific on ingredients and methods.

    People need to chill. Tasty isn’t going to ruin their reputation by posting a fake recipe unless it’s April Fool’s Day. David Seymour successfully recreated Buzzfeed’s recipe 2 years ago and just posted a video recreating Tasty and Ann’s recipes a month ago. I prefer waffles anyway.

    why dont you leave the tins on the pan to preheat them before pouring the batter in, it would help cook the upper parts of the cake

    Online recipes can honestly be such a cesspool, especially with trendy food items. Often times, a recipe author will only care about getting something out the door as fast as possible to rake in the ad revenue from the user having to scroll past 12 pages of their life's story, and it's honestly a shame. It feels like for every 1 good recipe, there's 50 that are just completely off the mark. It's particularly a problem because it's not harmless, it can be expensive and a waste of food for some recipes.

  68. Joe

    Joe3 kun oldin

    @ghosty4 it's more she said the only thing's she could find where those, which implies she walked the isles looking for something that would be suitable, at the very least she would have checked the section that has cake tins and all that which would be more unnecessary movement during a quarantine. Here in Australia we've been fairly lucky with our lockdowns and restrictions, melbourne copped it a bit last year but this year we have only been in full lockdown a few times and it has only been for very short periods. I don't get why she didn't just order something online and pay the bit extra our mail has been really fast this year or wait the couple days till the quarantine was lifted, it would have delayed the video by a few days at most.

  69. ghosty4

    It's food. It's not like she just made it for the video, and then threw it away. I'm sure her and her family ATE the food. Food is a necessity. It just so happens that she documented cooking it for UZnick.

    This channel is so wholesome, informative and entertaining. I just watched this one on a whim, after going through the whole debunk playlist. It makes me want to try these pancakes myself and seems actually feasible instead of so many of the scams out there. A real educator explains why something works, not just that it does. Ann clearly understands that and treats her audience with respect.

    The toilet paper thing was mostly people panicking but also there was a real cause as well. Offices and workplaces don’t buy consumer 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.

    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.
