Ingredients for coconut filling:

  • 190 g coconut palm sugar
  • 145 ml hot water
  • 2 pandan leaves
  • 190 g fresh shredded coconut
  • slaked cornstarch (1 1/2 tsps cornstarch + 1 tbsp water)

Ingredients for pandan pancake:

  • 2 eggs (grade A)
  • 200 ml + about 50 ml pandan juice*
  • 1 tbsp corn oil
  • 1/4 tsp fine salt
  • 150 g plain flour
  • 3 tbsps milk powder

(*Pandan juice: Add 260 ml of water to 30 g pandan leaves, blend until smooth, extract 250 ml pandan juice.)


Preparing coconut filling:

1 Combine coconut palm sugar, hot water and pandan leaves in a saucepan, cook over medium heat until sugar fully dissolved.

Preparing pandan pancake:

1 Beat the eggs lightly, add in 200 ml of pandan juice, corn oil and salt, mix until combined.

2 Sieve in plain flour and milk powder, mix until blended, then add in extra pandan juice gradually (about 50 ml, the water absorption capacity for different brands of flour is different, adjust the amount of pandan juice accordingly), until you have a slightly thin batter.

3 Strain the batter through a sieve, then set aside for 15 minutes.


4 Preheat non-stick pan (the pan I use is 20-cm), turn to medium heat, lightly coat with some oil.

5 Pour in about 1/4 cup (60 ml) of batter, swirl the pan to make a thin layer.
