Notes

* Since there is no baking powder added, we are depending on the beating process to incorporate air and add fluffiness to the pancakes.

In a large bowl, stir together all the dry ingredients. Then whisk in the egg mixture gradually just until smooth.  Then fold in the melted butter …..  And thats it!
 
 
 
On the hot greased shallow pan, pour a ladle full of batter to thinly cover the pan
 
 
Flip over when brown on one side …… Serve hot when done

 
 
This simple pancake is delicious even when served plain.
 
 
 
Although prepared without baking powder or baking soda ( hence they don’t rise much )……. they are nevertheless GOOD and more importantly HEALTHY pancakes.

 

 
So do give it a try and ENJOY!

I think that’s the nyonya style. Yes, it must be good .. with the santan aroma.

Angie, I love pancake and thanks for sharing. Just to share with u that my late father in law (who is a 100% Baba from Malacca) used to add coconut water in d mixture, it taste a bit different from the plain version.
