Crispy Scallion Pancakes
September 12 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC-7$15
Expand your Quarantine Cooking and bring Hipcooks to your kitchen with our Livestream cooking classes. We all cook step-by-step and side-by-side for an interactive experience.
We hope that these flaky & crispy scallion pancakes will soon become a quarantine favorite go-to treat. Hop to the streets of Asia in minutes! They’re easy to make, scrumptious, fast, and satisfying. The best part: all you need is about a cup of flour, some butter/oil, and some scallions or chive. That’s it!
The result will be a Dim Sum treat you will enjoy anytime. It will easily become a family favorite. Speaking of family: if you have kids, invite them to class or sign them up. You may need to help them at the stove, but otherwise, this is a perfect class for all ages.
Just a few ingredients make the magic!
Here’s what to have on hand to get ready for class. The amount below makes 4 pancakes (perfect for 4 people.) Feel free to halve the amount if there are just 2 of you!
- 2½ cups flour
- 1 cup of hot water
- A few scallions or chives, plus some scissors or a knife
- ½ a stick of butter in a small pot or microwave-safe bowl (we’ll be melting the butter for class)
- Flaky sea salt
- Some neutral cooking oil (like filtered coconut oil, grapeseed oil, vegetable oil or avocado oil)
- Skillet (10 or 12-inch skillet is perfect). You can use a non-stick skillet or cast-iron pan. Just about whatever you have will work.
- Tongs (are ideal for grabbing and flipping your pancake as you cook it. A spatula is trickier, but will also work!)
- A pastry brush (a clean paintbrush is fine to use if you don’t have a pastry brush)
- A rolling pin (No rolling pin? Use a wine bottle! Then you can pour yourself a nice glass to enjoy with your pancake!)
