    Apple Pancakes

    The other day, when I was cooking ‘Ukrainian Inspired Cabbage Pancakes’ again, as I am loving them, I thought I could make sweet pancakes in the same way using Apple, then I tried. I used Granny Smith Apple. A lot of juice came out from it and made the batter very runny. I didn’t squeeze …

    Savoury Carrot Pancake

    Grated Carrot is often used for sweet pancakes. I tried to make a savoury pancake today. The pancake turned very sweet because Carrot turns sweet when cooked. Carrot might be more suitable for sweet pancakes, but this savoury pancake was actually delicious with Japanese Mayonnaise OR salty sauce such as Kimchi Flavoured Sauce. If you …

    Ukrainian Inspired Cabbage Pancakes

    Japan has the world-famous Cabbage Pancakes ‘Okonomiyaki’. Other countries have their own Cabbage Pancakes. This is my ‘Ukrainian inspired Cabbage Pancakes’.

    ‘Mlyntsi’ Ukrainian Thin Pancakes

    Many counties have their own traditional thin Pancakes. France’s Crepes are probably the most famous ones. Ukraine’s thin Pancakes are called ‘Mlyntsi’. Similar to France’s Crepes, ‘Mlyntsi’ can be sweet or savoury. I tried a few recipes that I found on the internet, but most of them require too much Salt. I reduced the amount …

    Cottage Cheese Pancakes

    Many years ago, I learned how to cook Macedonian style Pancake from my Macedonian neighbour. I was surprised as it was quite different from the Pancakes that I usually cook.

    Pumpkin Pancakes

    If you have some leftover cooked Pumpkin, it would be a good idea to mix it into Pancake batter. Today I had almost 1/2 cupful of Pumpkin, but it doesn’t matter how much to add. You can add more or less, just adjust the thickness of the batter with Milk. This recipe makes very thick …

Just cut all Vegetables into thin strips, mix them with the batter, and pan-fry into a large ‘Okonomiyaki’ pancake. I …
