Red Bean Pancake


Red Bean Pancake is a must have dessert whenever we visit a dim sum restaurant in Singapore. On our last visit back home in Christmas, we brought our grandma out for lunch and raved about eating red bean pan cakes. This dessert originated from Shanghai and is now common in Singapore. Imagine biting into the pancake and having hot bean paste oozing out. Yummy!!! Obviously not a common find in the UK, we decided to try our hand at making our own. We bought azuki bean paste from the korean store in town (too lazy to make our own !! haha)

Pancake Batter :
1 egg
120g plain flour
250ml water
1 TBS vegetable oil

250g red bean paste


  1. Mix all in ingredients to make the pancake batter.
  2. Heat a frying pan with vegetable oil pour a thin layer of batter onto the pan (Like making crepe) . You only need to fry it on one side. Do the same until you have finished all the batter. Set aside to cool.
  3. Once the pancake is cooled, spoon 2 TBS of red bean paste onto the pancake and spread evenly in the center. Fold the pancake to fold a rectangular shape and use whatever pancake batter in your bowl to stick the sides together.
  4. Heat a frying pan with 200ml of vegetable oil. Fry until crispy and brown on both sides.

The pancake looked like this before filling the red bean paste and frying
