Cooking cakes in a pan:
Step 1: prepare the dough.
Knead the dough first. To do this, pour milk, vegetable oil into a prepared deep bowl and sprinkle part of the flour, adding salt. Stir everything and begin to gradually interfere with the remaining flour, passing it through a sieve. You may need less or more flour than indicated in the ingredients. Knead the flat cake dough until it is steep enough to hold its shape. Now roll a ball out of it and let it rest at room temperature for 20-30 minutes. It is best to cover it with a kitchen towel, lid or other plate.
After the dough has infused and rests the time set for it, pinch off pieces from it and give them the shape of a ball in their palms. Do not forget to sprinkle the cooking surface with a small amount of flour to avoid sticking the dough.
Step 2: form the cakes.
Now put one of the balls of dough on the prepared and sprinkled with flour surface. Roll it up with a rolling pin until the ball turns into a thin pancake, taking the thickness and shape suitable for your cakes.
Repeat the same with the rest of the balls from the dough. For convenience, stack raw billets on top of each other, crushing flour between layers.
Step 3: fry the tortillas in a pan.
On high heat, heat the pan without oil. At a distance of 7-10 centimeters from the pan, palm up, if you feel intense heat, then turn down the heat and begin to fry the cakes. Lay them out one at a time. If you are confident in your abilities, then use immediately not one, but two pans, this will work twice as fast, but you will also need to be careful twice as well.
Fry each cake in a dry pan. 30-40 seconds on each side, in other words, to a crispy crust. Then put the finished product on a flat dish, allowing them to cool slightly. Across 5-10 minutes your cakes will be ready and you will be able to present them at home, serving food on the table.
Step 4: serve the cakes.
Serve the cakes fried in a pan, serve slightly cooled so as not to burn during meals. Serve them just like that, or you can grease with butter, liver paste or put a vegetable salad on top. Thus, you will create not only a replacement for ordinary and bored bread, but also a wonderful snack for all occasions.
Enjoy your meal!
- If you want to make dessert from cakes in the future, then you can safely do without adding salt.
- Imagine, add greens, cheese or other toppings to the dough to create a completely new dish.
- To prepare lean cakes, exclude milk from the dough, replacing it with water.
