4 pancakes


  • 2 cups bread flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup water

  • 1 cup finely chopped scallions

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening

  • ½ teaspoon vegetable oil

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 4 large eggs


  1. Mix flour and salt together in a bowl. Pour in water and combine with an electric stand mixer or knead with your hands until you have a smooth dough that's not sticky. Let rest for 20 to 30 minutes.

  2. Divide dough into 4 equal pieces. Form into balls and let rest for 15 minutes.

  3. Roll each ball into a very thin, 8x12-inch rectangle. The thinner the rectangle is, the more layers you will have in the end. Spread about 1/2 tablespoon of shortening on each rectangle. Spread 1/4 cup scallions on top. Roll each rectangle so you have long ropes; press down on each end to seal. Roll each into a tight, snake-like coil, with seams inside.

  4. Heat a 12-inch nonstick pan over medium heat. Put oil in the pan and spread around with a spatula. Place 1 pancake flat into the pan and cook, covered, about 2 minutes. Uncover and flip; season with salt and continue to cook until golden, about 4 minutes more.

  5. Crack 1 egg in a small bowl and beat lightly. Add salt and pepper. Pour egg on top of the pancake, spreading evenly. Cover and cook until egg is set, 2 to 3 minutes. Uncover and fold pancake in half. Transfer to a plate and cut with a pizza cutter into 4 wedges. Repeat with remaining pancakes and eggs.

Cook's Note:

You can use all-purpose flour instead of bread flour.
