I’ve been trying to get this post for Korean Pancakes or Gamjajeon out all day! ‘Coz the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Pyeongchang is in the Gangwon Province of South Korea, dominated by the Taebaek Mountains.
First, to my children: These are not your Momma’s pancakes. I was the worst Mom in the morning and I apologize. I’m surprised you didn’t starve to death or die of malnutrition. And now, here I am making pancakes (and all kinds of breakfasty things) for the folks all the time. Secondly, even when I did make pancakes, they weren’t these Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.
One Saturday morning, I woke up to two beaming youngsters. My daughter had pulled out a couple of cookbooks and found this recipe in an old Betty Crocker cookbook. To my mind, it’s the first thing she ever really made, and she was around 10. I’m still boggled! The logistics of making and cooking pancakes is a lot for a child that age. Heck, it’s a lot for me (not a morning person.) I’ve been making Best Basic Pancakes (Betty Crocker Pancakes) ever since.
Awhile back, I made the most marvelous Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes for Mother’s day. They were awesome. They were fabulous. But they set off some kind of deep seated craving for more brunch! More and more brunch! I want brunch all the time, now! Do you ever get like that – just go on a kick like a runaway train?
