I’ve always had a rice cooker in my house. Grew up with one. My mom was the lady who made a pot of rice with everything, including spaghetti. Any wonder I love carbs?
So this? EPIC. Now I can binge on Orange is the New Black and never once worry that there’s nothing yummy to eat. Because this puppy will feed me through the entire binge. (Maybe.)
Thank you, rice cooker gods!
Every summer, I try to spend as many days as possible on the beach at Enoshima, and each time I get out of the station and walk towards the sand, I pass a long line of people waiting for a seat at the local pancake restaurant. This isn’t Japan’s only pancake joint with a lengthy wait, either, as you can find similar eateries with comparable lines in Tokyo, too.
It used to strike me as a little weird. After all, whipping up a stack of pancakes isn’t exactly the most challenging culinary feat. It can get tedious, though, as you settle into a monotonous pattern of plopping batter into the pan, flipping the half-cooked cake, and repeating over and over again.
Or, you could bypass all that by making an entire batch of pancakes all at once in a rice cooker.
