Dining in or bento take away for you? Hehee, presenting two possible pancakes presentation with Hello Kitty theme.
I actually lost track of when was the last time I actually used this Hello Kitty pancake pan.
In fact, I don’t even think I actually posted on my blog on this before.
Actually my recipe today is more hotcake than pancakes. While to most people outside Japan, hotcakes and pancakes seem to mean the same thing, they are actually quite different for Japanese.
Hotcakes are more fluffy and usually sweeter with the addition of egg, milk and sugar in its batter. Hotcakes are also often enjoyed with maple syrup or other sweet toppings etc. While pancakes are usually not as eggy in taste and less sweet in its batter. It can be enjoyed more with breakfast items like hotdogs and bacon.
As I have some additional batter left, I divided the batter and added a little colour and made rainbow coloured mini pancakes (or hotcakes).
The ribbon mark was made using my customised branding iron from Japan at Kappabashi street in Asakusa.
They are so cute I had to buy a couple of packs home.
I hope you like today’s breakfast creation!
