Cooking Time: 30mins - 60mins
Serves:3 to 4
Total time: 60mins - 120mins
Course: Dessert
Cook Method: Pan-Fry
Cuisine: Chinese









Ingredients:

For the pancake

1 cup milk
1/3 cup plain flour
¼ cup custard powder
¼ cup icing sugar
10g butter (melted)
3 eggs (lightly beaten)

For the filling

1¼ cups whipping cream
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ tbsp icing sugar (optional)
2-3 mangoes (peeled and cut into chunks)




Steps:

Prepare the batter:

  1. Pour milk into a mixing bowl. Sift flour, cornstarch (or custard powder) and icing sugar into the bowl. Mix with a balloon whisk until well combined.
  2. Add melted butter and lightly beaten eggs into the mixture. Mix well. Through a sieve, pour the mixture into a bowl / measuring cup (ideally with pouring spout).

Cook the pancakes:

  1. Heat up a non-stick frying pan over low heat. Pour small amount of batter onto the pan then swirl quickly to form a very thin round layer. When small air pockets appear, remove the pancake and place on a plate to cool (you don’t have to cook the other side). Repeat the steps until you finish the mixture.

Whip the cream:

  1. While waiting for the pancakes to cool, whip up the cream and vanilla extract (and icing sugar) until stiff peaks form.

Assemble the pancakes:

  1. Lay one pancake on a flat surface (clear, smooth side facing down). Spoon some whipped cream onto the middle of the pancake. Place one piece of mango on top.
  2. Wrap the filling from four sides of the pancake to form a pillow-like shape. Place it on a plate with the folded side facing down. Repeat the steps.
  3. Place in fridge for at least 30 mins. Serve cold.
