This Korean pancake recipe is super quick, easy and toddler friendly! Surprisingly, I feel like I have even less time since being in lockdown. Being stuck at home with a little one all day every day is HARD WORK! We are running out of ideas for lunch, and I definitely miss eating out. It’s crazy how much we rely on it!
Korean food is a favourite of ours, to be honest most asian cuisine is.
Here is a re-creation of a Korean style pancake, it is baby/toddler friendly and sort of mess free (no sticky, saucy hands everywhere). The hardest and most time consuming part is chopping up all of the ingredients, but if you have a mandoline handy it would save a lot of time. I recently purchased this OXO mandoline which is impressive, I love that it catches in its own container, and has 4 different grater styles.
Korean Pancake Recipe
Easy Korean Style Pancake Recipe
- Large frying pan
- Knife / Mandoline
- 1 carrot
- 2 potatoes
- 1 cabbage or lettuce
- 1/2 brown onion
- 1 spring onion (finely chopped, separate green and white)
- 2 slices bacon optional
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp plain flour
- 1 tbsp water
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
- 1 tsp pepper (or to taste)
- Chop all vegetables and meat into thin matchstick sizes, place in large bowl with the white part of the spring onion
- Add the flour, water, salt and pepper and mix it all up with your hand
- Using a large non-stick frying pan. Heat oil and lay the mixture out as thinly as possible. Let that cook on med-high heat until the bottom begins to brown
- Once starting to brown, you have two options. 1 – Crack 2 eggs on top and cover with a lid to cook (this will give you sunny side up eggs on top of the pancake). Leave it covered until eggs are as desired, I stop it whilst the yolk is still runny. 2 – Flip the pancake and continue to cook until the other side is brown.
- Voila! Put it on a plate and sprinkle the finely chopped green spring onion on top. Serve it with a dipping sauce (recipe in my blog, see link below). Enjoy!
