Recipe by Darlene28
I went web-surfing to see if I could find a recipe for homemade pancakes to go along with Toni Gifford's Moo Shu Vegies #137090 because I wanted an authentic taste and due to a little web-surfing this is what I found. I don't know how authentic it is but I'm willing to give it a try. Thanks for the idea Toni and thanks to Tom Fitzmorris for posting it. I haven't made this yet so times are just a guesstimate but please feel free to change it.

Made these to go with Moo Shoo Chicken by Chris from Kansas. They are a little labor intensive but my husband really liked them so I will make them again. I might try making them earlier in the day next time or a day earlier, then reheat. We kept ours warm in a tortilla warmer which worked really well. I found the instructions a little confusing though. It says it makes 40 pancakes, but the instructions say divide dough into 18-20 balls? So, I'm not sure I really made these correctly, but they came out fine, so I will use this again. Thanks.
Directions See How It's Made
- Mix the salt into the flour with a fork. Pile the flour onto a clean counter and make a well in it with your fingers. Pour the oil into the well, followed by about half of the hot water. Mix the flour into the water and make into a dough, adding a little water at a time until you have a damp dough. Knead the dough for a bout 10 minutes or until smooth.
- Divide the dough into 18- 20 balls of about equal size. Flatten and roll them out into discs about 2-3 inches in diameter. Brush the tops of half of these with a little oil and place the other half of these on top. Dust with a little flour and roll out into thin pizza like circles about 6-8 inches across. Stack with waxed paper in between the pancakes.
- Heat a griddle or large ungreased skillet over medium-low heat. cook one at a time turning often until bubbles begin to form in the dough. Do not brown! With the tip of a knife seperate the pancake into two and place on a warm plate covered with a clean dampened towel mositened with hot water. Continue doing this until all the pancakes are done.
