Instant Pot Paleo Pancakes Taste Test | No Pressure | Extra Crispy


– Hi I”m Cat and I love my instant pot. Pretty sure my instant pot loves me too. And sometimes we’ll be having a relaxing Sunday morning together
and we both want pancakes. But I’ve been reading more
and more on the internet about people trying out
instant pot pancakes. Doesn’t that sound fantastic? No it doesn’t kind of. Why would you make
pancakes in an instant pot other than the fact that instant pot is really great with everything. All hail instant pot. And I will note that I
have tested this before. it flopped every time, so that could easily happen again today. And also I will caveat that
I’m making gluten free pancakes because I can’t, my body’s stupid. Actually no, be nice to yourself, your body isn’t stupid, your body’s going through some things. We’re working with a gluten free mix, in this case, we’re going
with a little bit of tapioca flour and in here, coconut flour. And we’re gonna be using banana milk here. Also my body doesn’t like dairy. And we’re using almond milk in the other. It’s awful having a body
sometimes, instant pot. Be happy about your situation in life. Each of these, adding salt,
sugar and baking powder. We’ve got some, just really
fantastic organic maple syrup. Half into this and half into here. (glass breaking) Ah. Almond milk into the almond
flour and coconut mixture. Whisk might not have been
the best tool for this, that’s okay, we live we
learn, we forgive ourselves. Banana milk. Have you ever worked with banana milk? It’s bananas. People get really crazy about nut milks. I find that disturbing to say, nut milk, nut milk, nut milk, nut milk. It’s science. It’s fun. Gonna whip some egg whites. Next, I’m just gonna
fold about half of this into the mixture. This way there’s a lot of air in there. What I’m trying to get to, what the internet has
gone really kooky about, are these big fluffy, tall
Japanese style pancakes. So Instagram-able. I’m not looking for too much beauty here. I’m just looking for a pancake
that doesn’t make me sad. It was so depressing
when this didn’t work, it just flopped. It flopped and my heart
sank and I felt like I let instant pot down. I don’t want to let you down, instant pot, that we’re in this together,
starting to realize that. It’s my life too, instant pot. Let’s have a baby. (weird sound effect) How to separate out the pancake batters. Here you go, we’re gonna
work with these ring molds. Just gonna spritz up the
inside of the instant pot, so our friends here don’t stick. (spraying) (coughing) Toward the front, is tapioca. And toward the back, is coconut flour. The batter is running out just a tiny bit. Ah, it’s not too bad. (lid closing) Here we go. Just gonna take this to low pressure. Instant pot, make me some pancakes. (beeping) Okay, it’s pancake time. And I was thinking about it, I was gonna say that I’m really nervous about what’s going on in the instant pot. But with everything going
on in the world right now, the least of our problems is if there’re pancakes in here. Moment of truth. Ha. We’ve achieved fluffiness. Ah, okay we’ve lost the bottom layer. That is okay. Honestly I expected to open that up and just have pancake blobs everywhere, which again, there are worse
things happening in the world. Actual blobs. Whoa. (laughs) That’s not a pancake and yet it is still something. Oop, self don’t burn, self instant pot doesn’t have to
worry about burning itself. Just my heart. Ooh, crumbly mess. Okay. What have we learned here today? (laughs) Just because you can, doesn’t necessarily mean you ought to. This is fine, this is great. If I were serving it in the manner of, one of those lovely
fluffy Japanese pancakes, I’d do a little bit of
surgery to it first. It would take a little bit more doing. It’s a little floppy. Can you make a Japanese style
pancake in the instant pot? Yes. It takes 50 minutes. I popped these beauties into the oven at 350 for 25 minutes. (dramatic sound effect) Draw your own conclusions, just because you can,
doesn’t mean you ought. Knowing that you can, is pretty great. From instant pot me, happy pancaking. (crash)
