Hello dollies! It's cooking time again! This is my second food recipe entry this year. You can check my "How to make your own homemade icecream." post if you like. :D
I wanna share with you how I prepare my hotcake which is also know as pancake. Us Pinoy's usally call it as hotcake rather than pancake. I dunno why. Haha. Obviously, the term hotcake was taken from the word cake that is cooked on a hot pan. Am I making any sense? :))
A pancake is a thin, flat, round cake prepared from a batter, or dough in some cases, and cooked on a hot griddle or frying pan. Most pancakes are quick breads; some use a yeast-raised or fermented batter. Most pancakes are cooked one side on a griddle and flipped partway through to cook the other side. Depending on the region, pancakes may be served at any time, with a variety of toppings or fillings including jam, chocolate chips, fruit, syrup or meat.
Too much for the info..Let's start!
Prepare all the things needed for cooking.
- White King Hotcake and waffle mix 400g
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of water or milk
- 4 tbsp margarine or butter
1. Get a large bowl and pour in your hotcake mixture.
2. Pour in 1 cup of water or milk.
3. Grab the eggs and beat it until frothy / bubbly and pour it onto the mixture.
4. Slice 1/4 of your butter and melt it on your saucepan.
If you are using margarine you may skip the melting step.
5. Pour butter or margarine onto the mixture.
6. Stir mixture until fairly smooth.
7. Preheat the pan with 1/4 tbsp butter / margarine.
This can prevent the hot cake to stick to the pan.
Make sure the pan is at it's lowest heat.
8. Scoop your desired amount and pour it onto the pan.
9. Wait until the hotcake creates small bubbles then flip it and cook the other side.
Estimated time about 1 minute on the first side, 30-40 seconds on the other side.
10. Pour some syrup and add a slice of butter on top.
There you have it!
You can serve this with crispy bacon on the side
or you can pour some hot chocolate syrup or strawberry syrup if you'd like.
Oh, this mixture can also be made as waffle as indicated on it name.
Enjoy cooking! :)
