Day 105: Hong Kong Style Mango Pancake
I tried my first "mango pancake" about a year ago. I walked into that store and decided to order a mango pancake, thinking it was a normal fluffy pancake flavored with mangoes. I was soooo wrong. Instead, it was a fluffy crepe filled with fluffy whipped cream and a big mango chunk in the middle. YUM!
You only cook one side. This is the case because you don't want to show that the other side is burnt a little.
So when you're assembling make sure that when you fold your crepes, so that the nice side is showing.
The batter will actually be really runny. Like "milk" runny.
I like to eat these for breakfast (😏), or a light dessert! Trust me you'll be addicted FAST!
Level: 👩🏽🍳|Time: 15 minutes|Serves: 4|
1 cup milk
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup corn starch
1/4 cup powdered sugar
3 medium eggs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
For the filling
1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon powdered sugars
2 large mangoes, peeled & cut into chunks
Whisk together all the crepe ingredients and pour into an greased griddle over low heat. Spread out with a spoon to make a large circle. Cook on one side until bubbles form. Take off of heat and cool.
While the crepes are cooling, whip you filling ingredients together until stiff peaks form. Take a crepe, place a rectangle of whipped cream, and one mango. Fold over all sides so it becomes a square.
