A Buddhist Pancake #VideoRecipes


A Buddhist Pancake

Steve Miller's VLOG. This past weekend, Jo and I went into Seoul for the Buddhist Expo. At the expo, they displayed various aspects of temple life and one of the things that really caught my eye was the fried pancakes. I'm a fan of 전 in Korea, but I've never seen it made by hand before. So here is a special video of the volunteers doing just that. The end result is gongjeon. It tasted like a slightly less think bindaetteok. I dug it.


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups milk, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more as needed


In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.

In another bowl, beat the eggs and then whisk in the milk and vanilla.

Melt the butter in a large cast iron skillet or griddle over medium heat.

Whisk the butter into the milk mixture. Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture, and whisk until a thick batter is just formed.

Keeping the skillet at medium heat, ladle about 1/4 cup of the batter onto the skillet, to make a pancake. Make 1 or 2 more pancakes, taking care to keep them evenly spaced apart. Cook, until bubbles break the surface of the pancakes, and the undersides are golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip with a spatula and cook about 1 minute more on the second side. Serve immediately or transfer to a platter and cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more butter to the skillet as needed.

Procedure for adding fruit to pancakes: Once the bubbles break the surface of the pancakes, scatter the surface with sliced or diced fruit, or chocolate chips, nuts, etc. Flip with a spatula and cook for 1 minute more, being careful not to burn toppings.

Yield:4 servings
