  • skillet
  • Pancake turner
  • Bowl
  • Whisk or slotted spoon


Kimchi pancakes

  • 1 Cup Kodiak high protein pancake mix may need a little more for preferred consistency
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Kimchi Homemade or store-bought
  • 1/4 - 1/2 Cup Water The amount depends on your preferred consistency. I used 1/4 cup
  • 1 Tablespoons Oil I used bacon grease, sesame oil is good also, or your preferred oil

Sour Cream Pomegranate Topping

  • 1/2 Cup Sour cream
  • 1/4 Cup Pomegranate molasses
  • 1/2 Teaspoon chile paste I used spicy fried chile paste from the Asian store, but it’s your preference


Kimchi pancakes

  • In a large bowl, with a wire whisk or slotted spoon, stir together Kodiak mix and 2 eggs
    Add 1 cup Kimchi and and stir everything together until thoroughly mixed
    Add a little water or pancake mix to get the cakes to your desired consistency.
  • Let the batter rest about 5 minutes. While resting warm up 1 Tablespoon of bacon fat or oil over medium heat in a large skillet
  • Add large spoonfuls of batter to the heated oil in the skillet and spread out to a round cake about 1/2 inch thick. Keep the cakes from touching each other if possible.
    Cook about 3-4 minutes and then flip with a pancake turner (check bottom before flipping to see if it is golden brown).
    Flip and cook another 3-4 minutes.
    Remove from skillet and serve with maple syrup or savory topping like the sour cream topping below.

Sour cream pomegranate topping

  • In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream, pomegranate molasses and chile paste until smooth and creamy.
