Spring Onion Pancake ~ 葱油饼


I enjoy eating spring onion pancakes at the dim sum restaurant and also have a liking for Korean spring onion pancakes as well.  These pancakes are flaky and crispy and best eaten immediately.  Other than eating it on its on,  I reckon it will pair well with some curry just like our local roti canai.  If your hands can withstand heat, you can scrunch the pancake with your palms to make it more flaky just like how the roti canai guy does it before serving the roti :)










Spring Onion Pancake  ~   葱油饼

Ingredients

  • 300 gm plain flour
  • 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1/4 cup room temperature water
  • 2 to 3 stalks spring onions
  • Sesame oil
  • Salt
  • Cooking oil
Method
  1. Sift the flour into a mixing bowl, slowly add in boiling water and stir with a wooden stick (I use the handle of the wooden spoon), then slowly add in the room temperature water little by little. Mix well.  Knead till smooth and not sticky.  (You may require less water or more flour if the dough is too wet to handle).   Cover with cling wrap and let rest for 30 mins.  OR can leave it overnight, in the refrigerator.  I left it overnight.
  2. Wash the spring onions, pat dry before chopping them up.
  3. Knead the dough lightly and divide into 2 pieces.  Roll out each piece and cut into 4 pieces.
  4. Roll out a ball of dough into a thin pancake, brush with some sesame oil, sprinkle on some salt and sprinkle on the chopped onions.
  5. Roll up like a swiss roll, close up both ends, then pull the roll to make it a bit elongated and then roll up like a snail, tuck in the end.  Let rest for 15 mins,, cover with a damp cloth.  Repeat with the rest of the dough.  (While waiting, keep those balls of dough covered to prevent them from drying). 
  6. Take a 'snail' ball of dough, flatten a bit with your palm and gently roll it out thinly.  
  7. Heat up a non-stick pan with some oil and pan fry the pancake, about 4 mins. on each side till brown.  Press on the centre to ensure that it's cooked.
  8. Scrunch up the pancake with a pair of chopsticks before lifting it out onto a serving plate.
  9. Serve immediately.
  10. Yield :  8 pieces
Note:   The pancakes can be rolled out and kept in between plastic wrap in the fridge and pan fry when needed.

Chocolate chip banana bread ~ 香蕉巧克力蛋糕

This is an easy peasy recipe where no mixer is required.  Method is more or less like making muffins.  The texture of this banana loaf is soft, moist and there is a perfect blend between the aromatic bananas and chocolate chips.

Topo Map Cake ~ 地图蛋糕

I think it is more appropriate to name this cake just as 'Topo map cake' for the layers in this cake really look like a map.  Layering this cake can be quite challenging as a great deal of patience is required.  But patience and endurance do pay and after the cake is baked and once you sliced it up, you'll be so pleased to see the pretty layers and the colour combination.  Not only does it look awesome, the texture is good too, soft and moist.
