  • To make the batter, in a large bowl, combine the water, 1⁄2 tablespoon superfine sugar, and yeast. Mix until combined. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  • Add the flour, milk, and salt and mix until a dough begins to form.
  • On a lightly floured work surface, knead the dough for 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Put the dough in the large bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let it expand and double in size, about 1 hour.
  • To make the filling, in a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, the remaining 1⁄2 tablespoon superfine sugar, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Dust your hands with flour and roll golf ball−size balls with all the dough.
  • Put one ball in the palm of your hand, flatten with your other hand, and place 1 teaspoon of the filling in the middle. Fold over gently to close. Repeat with the rest of the dough and filling.
  • In batches in a large, lightly oiled skillet over medium-high heat, fry the stuffed dough circles until they puff up, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel−lined plate. Add more vegetable oil to the pan as needed. Repeat until all of the pancakes have been fried.
  • Serve hot, or enjoy at room temperature.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.

Cooking Tips

Brown Sugar Hot Cakes
The sizzle, the flip, the magic! Creating brown sugar hot cakes is an art worth mastering.

There’s something nostalgic about the warm, sweet aroma of brown sugar and cinnamon wafting from the kitchen. With each fluffy bite, memories come flooding back of my grandmother’s famous hot cakes.

I’ve discovered a few tips over the years for making sure my brown sugar hot cakes turn out pillowy soft and full of flavor. My secret is to mix the batter gently so those delicate hot cakes don’t get tough. I also let the batter sit for a few minutes which allows the brown sugar to melt into a delicious syrup. Dolloping the batter onto a hot griddle and waiting for that first bubble to appear before flipping takes a little patience. But it yields the perfect golden color. Finally, serve those babies straight off the griddle with a pat of butter so it melts down into all those nooks and crannies.

Making these brown sugar hot cakes is a comforting way for me to connect to family traditions. I hope you’ll give my tips a try and let the sweet aromas transport you back to your most cherished memories. Just be prepared to smile as you take the first bite of hot cake heaven. I’d love to hear how brown sugar hot cakes make you feel once you’ve given them a try.
