Bake Along #14 - Korean Sweet Pancakes


I love these pancakes. They are slightly crispy on the crust and it's fluffy. A little resembles of a pau. You can just mix all the ingredients in a bowl and no kneading required. These sweet pancakes are filled with a mixture of cinnamon powder, brown sugar and also some chopped walnuts. Really nice, would love to make these again.

Me, Joyce and Zoe have decided to make some Apricot Walnut Bars in our next bake along on 22dec. If you're interested to make, you can click on the link above to get the recipe and bake along with us.



Recipe ( can refer to video here )
Ingredients ( makes 8 pieces)
1 cup slightly warm water
2 tsp instant yeast
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 cups all purpose flour

Fillings  ( you can double this filling,  originally this filling is for 4 pancakes or cheese filling as shown in the video)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tbsp chopped walnuts

Method:
1.Pour 1 cup of slightly warm water into a big mixing bowl. Add in the instant yeast, sugar, salt and vegetable oil and mix all together with a hand whisk.
2. Next add in the flour and continue mixing till all is well incorporated. Leave to proof in the bowl for 1 hour till double its volume.
3.After an hour, stir the mixture ( it will deflate ) and let it rest for 10 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, you can prepare your fillings. Just mix all the filling ingredients in a bowl and leave aside.
5. Flour your working table and remove the dough from the bowl ( from step 3) and divide into 8 portions.
6. Lightly pat each dough with your palm to flatten it , wrap in fillings , seal tightly and pan fry them in a pan with little oil. Leave them fry on one side for about 30 seconds and flip over to the side. Once flipped over, use your spatula to flatten the dough and fry till both sides are golden brown, you can then cover and cook for another minute. Remove from pan. Done.  You can cook these pancakes 2 or 3 at a time .

  2. Oh, usually I have pancake kosong. I pour sugar into the mixture so that the taste isn't so bland. No need to dip in syrup afterward.

    Your recipe here is something that I would like to try out - brown sugar + walnuts as the filing. Great idea~

  11. These pancakes are very unique in their flavours and fluffy texture. The use of yeast in them must have made the pancakes extra soft and delicious!
