Pancakes or hotcakes are great on their own. Cooked in a non-stick pan under low heat, drizzled with maple syrup, and topped with a slice of butter.
But the quarantine has given many homebound folks—seasoned chefs or aspiring ones—time to experiment in the kitchen, creating and recreating new dishes featuring this all-time favorite breakfast comfort food.
Pancakes turned cereal
A win for anyone who ever agonized over the big breakfast decision: hotcakes or cereal? This trend creatively combines both, spawns various iterations, and is just really cute—not to mention easy. Using Maya Hotcake Mix, simply cook it according to the instructions, but in tiny version, as in the size of a 25-centavo or one-peso coin. Serve with maple syrup, nuts, and fruit slices.
Tiramisu soufflé hotcakes
Hotcakes, but make it haute. Highly “Instagrammable,” this fancy and fluffy hotcake version can be a little more complicated to make, but practice does make perfect. The secret, they say, is making sure to whisk the egg whites until frothy. Fold it into the batter and cook in very low heat.
The ultimate coming together of two beloved Pinoy treats, puto and leche flan, this creation has tickled taste buds and sparked a craze. Simply make leche flan and use Maya Original Fluffy n’ Tasty Hotcake Mix as a convenient puto base. Combine, cook, and serve.
This recipe is a perfect way to kick-start the day. Making it is easy, too. Simply prepare the pancake following the instructions on the packaging, and add half a cup of brewed coffee or instant coffee.
The aforementioned pancake recipes are available at www.themayakitchen.com and on Maya’s Facebook page.
