The Maya Kitchen: Hotcake Art with Maya Hotcake Mix and The Pancake Warrior!


Maya Hotcake Art with The Pancake Warrior 

Pancake is one of the easiest and quickest breakfast or snack to make. And when it comes to pancakes, there's only one brand that comes to my mind -- Maya. Being in the household of Filipinos for more than 50 years, for sure you grew up enjoying hotcakes from this brand.

Maya not only makes it convenient to make a quick snack, but they also ensure that even if you don't have any background in cooking, you'll be able to have a yummy output.

My son loves hotcakes that's why I always try to serve it in fun and creative ways. I sometimes put chocolate powder in the batter to make choco pancakes, top them with fruits and drizzle with syrup, or cut them in shapes. But one thing I've been wanting so much to do is doing Hotcake Art. I tried before but failed as I didn't know the technique. Glad I had the chance to learn from the expert -- The Pancake Warrior, Elle Jay Orbase.

Elle Jay is a simple Cebu-based guy who has passion both for art and food. Through a griddle pan, he found a way to express his love for both and that's how his Youtube channel The Pancake Warrior was born. Visit his channel which has over 100,000 subscribers and a total of 16 million views from all over the world and be amazed with his pancake art creations ranging from simple logos to anime characters and cartoons.

The main tools you need are: pan -- best to use Masflex crepe pan, squeeze bottles, food coloring, and Maya Original Fluffy n' Tasty Hotcake Mix or Maya Quick n' Easy Hotcake Mix.

On a lightly greased pan, make an outline of the shape, character, or whatever you want to draw using the squeeze bottle with colored batter. Fill in the gaps using different colors. Open the stove to cook the pancake on low heat. Wait for the bubbles. Gently flip using a greased wide spatula to cook the other side. And voila -- you've just made your first hotcake art!

Above is a simple yet colorful ice cream pancake that I made at The Maya Kitchen. At home, I don't have squeeze bottles so I just improvised with a plastic bag for ice, trimmed at the end. I also don't have food coloring but I have choco powder to make chocolate batter which I used for the outline. So I guess, the main ingredients are really Maya Hotcake Mix, lots of imagination and creativity, and a big heart on what you're doing and to whom you're doing them for. My hotcake art outputs aren't perfect but they are well-appreciated by my little boy -- and that's really enough to melt my heart.
