From the Test Kitchen

It’s time to sparkle. These traditional Korean pancakes get their fluffy texture from an everyday ingredient: good old-fashioned club soda! It might seem strange, but bear with us. During cooking, the bubbles in club soda effervesce, creating little pockets of air that trap heat, giving the pancake a crispy crust and a light, chewy interior. Bring out the bubbly!
