Hotto Keeki – Japanese fluffy pancakes without butter. They are cooked in a dry frying pan from dough with baking powder, so they turn out to be porous. To get the average between pancakes and a biscuit, you can bake in a culinary ring, and add kefir or yogurt to the base. Then the treat will really be a mini-biscuit.
With milk alone, the delicacy comes out ruddy, reminiscent of pancakes. Serve it with maple syrup or other sweet toppings.
- Milk – 200 ml.
- Wheat flour – 200 g.
- Chicken egg – 1 pc.
- Baking powder – 5 g.
- Sugar – 30 g.
- Salt – 1⁄4 tsp
- Syrup, honey or jam – for serving.
How to cook:
1. In a bowl, mix the flour sifted through a sieve with baking powder, salt.
We choose the highest grade flour so that the pancakes turn out beautiful and lush.
If desired, add vanilla or lemon zest. So the delicacy will acquire a bright aroma.
2. Break the chicken egg into a deep plate, beat a little, add sugar.
The amount of sugar can be increased or decreased as desired.
Beat the ingredients with a whisk or fork until the sugar grains dissolve.
3. Pour milk. Its fat content can be anything. We mix.
There are recipes where it is recommended to add yogurt along with milk. The dough turns out to be thicker, and the pancakes grow even higher and resemble biscuit cakes.
4. Pour the egg mixed with milk into a bowl with dry ingredients.
5. Mix the dough well. To get rid of lumps, you can strain the mixture through a sieve.
6. We heat a clean, dry frying pan over high heat. Then put on a wet towel for 10 seconds. There will be smoke and a hiss. Refrigeration is necessary so that the baked goods do not burn.
7. Return the pan to the fire, reduce the heat to medium. Pour out two thirds of the dough. When bubbles form, flip the pancake with a spatula.
8. Cover the inverted pancake with a lid, bake for 30-40 seconds.
Stack the finished Hotto Keeki and serve warm.
You can drizzle them with maple syrup or other sweet toppings. You can do without add-ons.
Flirty hats of ruddy sweets will decorate the home menu. Baking looks very impressive, and is eaten in one sitting.
