Sora News 24 reports on a life-changing food innovation from Japan. Twitter user @yas_yuki0573 discovered that his sandwich press can use more than just slices of bread. He poured pancake batter inside and the result was a thick corrugated pancake. Here are his instructions:
1. Fill one side of the sandwich maker with pancake batter. With the sandwich maker still open, cook on medium heat for 1-2 minutes.
2. When the bottom edge starts to brown but the center is still uncooked, close the sandwich maker and flip it over.
3. Cook on low heat for 4-5 minutes.
4. At this point the center should be cooked too, so turn off the heat. If you want a crispier outer layer, let the sandwich maker sit (while still closed) for 2-3 minutes before removing your pancake.
These can themselves be used as the ends of a sandwich. I'd like to try a Reuben made this way.
