Scallion pancakes recipe

These delicious finger-sized pancakes are appreciated by adults and children alike and make either a tasty appetizer served with “Duck” Sauce, or as an accompaniment to most soups, especially  Asian soups. Double the recipe to serve a bigger crowd.

Makes: about two dozen 2- to 3-inch pancakes

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour or spelt flour, or a combination
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons rice milk or water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup thinly sliced scallions
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds (optional)
  • Olive oil or other healthy vegetable oil
  • “Duck” Sauce, if desired

Combine all the ingredients except the oil in a mixing bowl. Whisk together until smooth.

Lightly oil a large griddle and ladle the batter on in small quantities. (1/8 cup is about right) to form 3-inch pancakes. Cook on both sides until golden brown. Remove to a plate and cover while cooking the remaining pancakes.

Arrange in concentric circles on a large platter and serve warm or at room temperature.

    Do you know if this would work with some kind of gluten free flour? If so, do you have any suggestions?

    Robin, these would be nice with teff or buckwheat flour, or even your favorite GF flour blend (like the kind make by Bob’s Red Mill). I should probably add these suggestions to the post!

    That should work fine, as long as it doesn’t have an overly sweet taste. I’m not sure if you mean the coconut milk beverage, which does have a bit of natural sweetness even in unsweetened form; or the kind in cans. If the latter, try using the light kind, as I’m worried that the full-fat would make these too heavy. You can also just use broth or water.
