Photography by Angie Norwood Browne

These pancakes are a little involved but so yummy!



2c. all purpose flour

1c. boiling water

1T. sesame oil

1/2 c. peanut oil

3T. olive oil

Salt and Pepper to taste

Ginger Dipping Sauce:

1/4 c. soy sauce

1/4 c. rice vinegar

1t. minced ginger

1t. red pepper flakes

1t. sugar


In a bowl, sift flour. Slowly add water in a steady stream while mixing with a wooden spoon. Keep adding water until a ball is formed. You could also do this part with a food processor.

Place ball of dough in a oiled bowl and let relax for 30 minutes covered with a damp cloth. While dough is resting make dipping sauce

combine all ingredients and set aside.

On a floured surface, roll out dough into a thin rectangle. Mix sesame oil, peanut oil and flour to make a paste, then brush the paste on dough, cover with scallions and salt and pepper. Carefully roll dough like a sponge cake. Cut into 4 pieces. Take one piece and twist and pull 3 times. Make a spiral out of this and flatten with hand to make 5 to 6 inch pancake. In cast iron skillet heat 3T. olive oil in pan and sear both sides until golden brown. As it cooks press the pancake down with a little weight, ( like a iron tortilla maker or the backside of smaller pan) to flatten it more in the pan. Cut into wedges and serve immediately with dipping sauce. For making the Ginger sauce combine all ingredients.

About anbphoto

I never thought I'd start a blog because I'm not a writer. I am a Southern Catholic girl, a commercial food Photographer and an avid gardener. I have always wanted to journal my garden; growing food (fruit, herbs and vegetables), photographing ingredients from earth to plate and sharing the recipes I love. Someone suggested that I forget about all the writing and simply share my photographs and recipes. Perfect! My blog is an exploration of home gardening and cooking, so here is a little history of me and how "Stray Cats and Blackberries" came about. Born and raised in Alabama, my love for food lies in Southern cuisine. I learned early on that life is a party revolving around friends and family sharing food and wine. Backyard Summer bbqs, black eyed peas and collard greens on New Year's Day or ham and chocolate on Easter are just a few favorite Southern traditions I love sharing. I became fascinated with gardening when my husband and I bought our first house. I am a mother, a wife and someone who appreciates the little treasures and traditions in life. My garden started as an empty parking lot behind a Mom & Pop grocery store that my husband and I bought and renovated into a photography studio. While my husband put on his carpenter pants I put on my gardening gloves. Thirteen dumpsters at three tons each and nearly three years later I had a plantable space to sew seeds. I have been a food photographer and gardener for over 20 years and love the idea of merging my passions by growing food, photographing my harvest and sharing recipes with you. Enjoy
