How To Make Scallion PancakesRecipes
Chewy, flaky, and savory scallion pancakes are one of our very favorite Chinese restaurant treats. This pan-fried bread has a lot in common with Indian parathas and other simple flatbreads, and if you follow a few simple steps, they are easy to make at home.

Recipe: The Apple PancakeRecipes
“We need to make Apple Pancake,” announced my friend Jennie. It was nearly a dozen years ago; I was fresh out of college and knocking around my own kitchen for the first time, doing experimental things like putting cinnamon in pasta sauce and struggling to bake chicken breasts. “Apple pancakes?” I said, forming a pleasant picture of a stack of chunky apple buttermilk pancakes, beaded with syrup. “No,” she said. “The apple pancake.

Recipe: Mini Potato Pancakes with Green Garlic and ChivesRecipes
Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, potato pancakes appear in many cuisines around the world. I’ve never met a potato pancake I didn’t like, but some of my favorites are Korean gamjajeon, which are frequently made into mini sizes perfect for dipping into vinegared soy sauce and served as a savory appetizer, side dish, or snack. When I wound up with a bunch of potatoes and spring alliums and herbs, it’s the first dish I thought of making.
Jan 22, 2020
Recipe: Kimchi Pancakes (Kimchijeon)Recipes
Whether homemade or store-bought, kimchi is delicious straight from the jar, but it can also be incorporated into lots of other dishes. These savory kimchi pancakes make a scrumptious snack, side dish, or appetizer. It’s easy to make them gluten-free and vegan, too. Just grab a skillet and a few simple ingredients. Kimchi pancakes, or kimchijeon, are crispy, a bit chewy, and full of the umami goodness of Korean-style fermented cabbage.

Recipe: Big Pancake (Dutch Baby)Recipes
Hands down, my favorite breakfast is a whimsical, slightly sour, oven-baked creature that my mom used to make for me when I had sleepovers at our house as a kid. We called it Big Pancake; others know it as a Dutch Baby or German Pancake. In the morning I’d hear the blender going and know she was making the batter. About 45 minutes later, a gaggle of pajamaed girls would gather around the over and watch the pancake’s showy, doughy display.

Recipe: Savory Carrot & Zucchini PancakesRecipes
My love for potato pancakes knows no bounds, but sometimes I’m looking for something with a little more color and personality. Move over, potatoes — these savory vegetable pancakes make an even better (and healthier) treat. A vegetable fritter isn’t anything new, but during the doldrums of winter, they can be just the thing to liven up your kitchen, clean out your pantry and fridge, and pack some extra nutrients into those little ones.

Recipe: Sweet Potato PancakesRecipes
Let’s talk about the one thing you need to be eating for breakfast this fall (and every single weekend even once fall has passed!): a warm stack of super-fluffy, lightly spiced sweet potato pancakes. It’s time to take a break from all things pumpkin, and let sweet potatoes take center stage on the breakfast table. Just don’t forget the maple syrup.

Valentine’s Recipe: Bananas Foster CrêpesRecipes
I often wonder what would happen if I could pursue all of the ideas and dreams that churned within my brain. I might be a Nobel prize winner, best-selling author, philanthropist, olympic athlete, or a beauty queen by now. I would definitely be a better girlfriend, daughter, sister, and friend. I would listen harder, talk less, and love more.

Recipe: Pudla (Indian Chickpea Crepes)Recipes
When I visited cookbook author and blogger Mallika Basu at her home in London last year, I found her ready and waiting to whip up a batch of pudla, chickpea crepes with cilantro, green chili, and ginger — a quick and easy breakfast staple she makes frequently for her family. I loved how light yet satisfying these gluten-free, vegan pancakes were, soft in the middle, and with a crisp edge. I asked her for the recipe and tried a batch in my own kitchen, and here are they are for you today.

Ree Drummond’s Unusual Tip for Perfect PancakesSkills
The Pioneer Woman loves to make pancakes from scratch. The only problem is that most of the time she actually prefers the taste of boxed pancake mix. It’s a polarizing opinion, but not an uncommon one. “I LOVE the experience of making pancakes from scratch, hearing them sizzle as I pour them onto a hot griddle, and watching everyone in my family gather around the stove and tell me how much they love me,” she wrote on her blog.

Recipe: Bacon and Kimchi PancakesRecipes
When you hear “pancakes for dinner,” you probably don’t think of bindaettuck, the traditional Korean mung bean pancakes. But while they may require ingredients you haven’t used before, they’re just as quick and easy to make. At Revel in Seattle, chef Rachel Yang offers ever-changing twists on tradition, from sweet corn pancakes (crusted with corn flakes, natch) in the summer to everything bagel-spiced pancakes with whitefish in the winter.

After weeks busy with the holiday hustle and bustle, spend Christmas morning in your pajamas surrounded by twinkling lights and enjoying jazzy carols on the turntable. There is no need to rush to the kitchen to measure flour, milk, and sugar because the only things this morning’s pancakes need are two eggs and a hot pan. Mix the batter before Santa’s sleigh arrives and stash it in the fridge overnight to develop a rich, satisfying flavor.

7 Things I Never Do When Making PancakesSkills
Pancakes are a weekly ritual at my house, so I have very strong opinions about how pancakes are made. These opinions often get directed toward my kids or husband when they try to help mix, fry, or flip a batch of pancakes. This pancake practice has given me a sense of authority on the virtues and pitfalls of hot-cake commandments, so here are the seven things I never, ever do to my pancakes. You’ve got to start pancakes with serving in mind, because cold pancakes won’t do.

The Best Way to Freeze and Reheat PancakesSkills
Saturday pancakes do double duty in my house. Their first job is to fill our bellies on Saturday morning, between cartoons and snuggles, but the leftover pancakes have a second life as a quick weekday breakfast during the week. When a double or triple batch of pancakes yields an abundance of extra flapjacks, this is how we prep them for freezing and then reheat them as needed. Start with your favorite pancake recipe and make sure the pancakes are fully cooked and cooled before freezing.

7 Tips for a Better Batch of Pancakes Every TimeSkills
My mom made a batch of pancakes for us nearly every Sunday when I was growing up. She used a box mix when she made hers, but I love the tradition so much that I continue it with my own children now. If you estimate that I’ve been making pancakes once a week since my almost 6-year-old started solids, then I’ve made 286 batches of pancakes in the last five years alone. There’s a lot to be learned from that kind of repetition.

For Better Pancakes, Follow This One Simple RuleSkills
Regardless of the recipe (of which there are many to choose from), and whether they’re thick or fluffy, a really good stack of pancakes comes with a signature golden-brown hue. You know the color — not too pale, and definitely not so dark it’s nearly burnt. Getting there with every batch of pancakes is easy, as long as you remember this one simple rule. As with many things in life, including your Sunday pancakes, it is the little things that so often make the biggest impact.

When’s the last time you made pancakes? Whether you’re hosting friends for brunch or making breakfast for your family, pancakes are often a special treat reserved for the weekend.

Even better, while they feel like something you’d whip up on a special occasion, they’re super simple to make — as easy as regular ol’ pancakes. I discovered these pancakes at Louisville’s Silver Dollar, a modern honky tonk in Clifton (just east of downtown) in a former fire station.

5 Sticky-Sweet Ways to Eat Your PancakesSkills
Few things can beat easing into a winter day with a warm stack of fluffy pancakes. While maple syrup is the usual go-to pairing, it’s far from the only way to give your pancakes the sticky-sweet topping they deserve. If you believe your stack of pancakes deserves to be topped with sticky-sweet syrup, ditch the maple for an apple-flavored upgrade. Apple cider syrup is cooked down from your favorite seasonal drink and infused with warm cinnamon spice and butter.

The Best Way to Keep Pancakes and Waffles WarmSkills
Arguably the trickiest part of making big-batch breakfasts of pancakes and waffles is delivering everything to the table at the same time, still warm and just as good as it is right off the griddle. But it’s totally possible, and actually pretty easy to pull off when you’ve got this strategy up your sleeve. To keep waffles and pancakes in pristine condition before the whole lot of them are ready to head to the table, you’ll need a baking sheet, a cooling rack, and a warm oven.

How To Make Pancakes for OneRecipes
I strongly believe that pancakes are the greatest “anytime” food — they shouldn’t be reserved strictly for breakfast or brunch because they also make a filling lunch or dinner or snack. Basically anytime is the right time for pancakes, except when you don’t have time to cook a whole batch — or don’t need to. Single-serve pancakes consist of two perfectly cooked cakes, ideal for sandwiching with butter and drizzling with maple syrup.

Recipe: Savory Tex-Mex Dutch Baby PancakeRecipes
As much as I love regular pancakes, there’s something about Dutch babies that elevates them to the status of something special. Even though they’re surprisingly easy to make, they’re so impressive when they emerge out of the oven all puffed up and proud. Since I tend toward savory rather than sweet breakfasts, this Dutch baby, loaded with spicy roasted chiles and melty cheese, is right up my alley.

Recipe: Ginger Ale Crêpes with Chocolate ChipsRecipes
My kids aren’t used to me saying things like, “Hey, y’all! Come downstairs! I’m making crêpes!” They are used to me cooking odd things at odd hours, because that’s what you do when you write about food and love experimenting in the kitchen. Usually I ask them to try things like radish butter which, while delicious, is no ginger ale crêpe with orange zest and chocolate chips. So they were pretty excited when this happened.

Recipe: Gluten-Free Mexican Hot Chocolate PancakesRecipes
For me, Christmastime means sipping hot cocoa by the fire and fighting with your siblings over who has more marshmallows in their cup. My mom would inevitably jump in and tell everyone that they have the exact same number of marshmallows floating on top of their cocoa, but I’d always remain skeptical. Luckily I’m a grownup now and can have all the marshmallows I want, or I can be even fancier and whip up a stack of hot chocolate-style pancakes with all of the fixings.
