Ingredients for the cake.

Ingredients for the cake.


– First, put all-purpose flour in a bowl, add 1/5 teaspoon of salt, 40g of sugar and mix.

– Next step, add boiling water. We will let the water boil slowly because depending on the different types of flour, it will absorb more or less water. After kneading the dough evenly and letting the dough rest for 15 to 30 minutes, sprinkle dry flour on the table or cutting board and knead. With this method, we only need to knead the dough evenly for about 5-10 minutes. When kneading, don’t let the dough get too dry or too mushy!

Once done, cut the dough into medium balls and roll over the white sesame seeds. Next, roll the dough out very thin and shape it according to your preferences.

– After rolling the dough, prepare a large non-stick pan and just cover 2/3 of the pan with cooking oil. When the oil is hot, reduce the heat to medium and add the flour. When the cake starts to brown, it will float up immediately, use a patch or a pair of chopsticks to stir it to make the cake puff up!

– When frying the cake, we should not fry it for too long because it will make the cake hard., so fry it to have a pepper cake that is both crispy on the outside and lightly spongy on the inside.
