Pancakes

Tried out 2 types of pancakes over the last 2 weeks.


This is from Elyn's Nigella's Pancakes. I like its premix method. You can prepare in advance by mixing large quantities of the dry ingredients and store them in an air-tight container. Whenever you need to make the pancakes, just scoop up 1 cup of the premix and mix with egg, milk, butter and vanilla essence to prepare the batter. These pancakes are SUPER soft and my nephew finished 6 pieces at one go.


This is another type of pancake from Korea called Hoddeok. The recipe is taken from My Korean Kitchen. It looks quite appetizing from the website's photos. I stuff the pancakes with sweet peanut fillings. But I did not do a good job when making the pancakes. The dough is kind of hard and dry. If only I had the chance to try the real Hoddeok from Korea, then I can compare how bad I did. ;)

  1. Sorry to hear that your Korean pan cake didnt turn out well. It's ok, practise a few more time, you should get it right. I made European bread yesterday, first attempt...it looks close, has got a crusty crust, but the crumbs like not very cooked, a bit dense :'( anyway we finished almost the whole loaf this morning! Will try making it another time, wish me luck!

  5. For your hoddeok homemade ones typically look like that. ^^ The fancy made ones always look better... But I think the taste of homemade is always better. It's true that the dough is hard to work with. The most common filling however is a mix of brown sugar and cinnamon. When you cook it, it melts, so it turns into a nice syrup. ^^ If you ever make them again, you should try it!

  6. Hi Korean girl, the combination of brown sugar and cinnamon and melt into syrup sounds great! I should try this last time. Thanks for telling me! :)
