The ultimate mix of pancake and donut.
A traditional delicious Samoan round pancake.
There are so many different types of breakfast foods out there and I am sure you have your favorites. But have you had panikeke? (pronounced pah-nee-kay-kay or pawn-kay-kay). This is a traditional Samoan round pancake and they are so delicious and easy to make.
The panikeke is made from a sweet dough and fried in oil. It can be served with cinnamon and sugar, butter and jam, whipped cream fresh fruit and more. It doesn’t necessarily have to be served during breakfast, it makes a great dessert as well.
When making these I highly recommend a cooking thermometer so you can make sure your oil stays between 320F and 350F. This will help to ensure you don’t have undercooked middles or make them too oily. Keep the oil between that sweet spot and you will have perfect panikeke every time.
We love these so much and hope you do as well. You’ll probably want to double or triple this recipe because they will be gone in a flash. Be sure to save this recipe on PINTEREST.
