Shanghai Sweet Pancake @ Wo Bing

'Wo Bing' or Shanghai sweet pancake is often served at many wedding dinner for the final serving dish as dessert in Malaysia. Of course, not all restaurants served this scrumptious dessert as their final dish or neither as dim sum. Some restaurants only served chilled sweet soup & hot sweet soup. Still I prefer this crispy treat. Its been a long long time since the last time I had them. Guess, its time to make them my own.

(recipe adapted from Kuali )
Ingredients for pancake crust :
125gm  all purpose flour
45gm    glutinous rice flour
1 TB  sugar
1/2 tspn  baking powder
1/4 tspn  salt
2 eggs
280ml   water

Method :
(1) Combine everything and mix till well cooperated.
(2) Preheat a 9" non-stick frying pan with a bit of cooking oil then pour one scoop of mixture to the pan and let to cook till brown. But make sure you keep some leftover for the sealing task.
(3) You will get about 6 sheets of pancake then set aside to cool.

There is one more recipe for Shanghai pancake here & here, where you may as well put into consideration.

*450gm  red bean paste for fillings (homemade red bean paste)


(1) Divide red bean paste into 3 portions, then flatten each into 5x6" or 5x5" size. Set aside.
(2) place one piece of pancake to working table, brush all sides with the leftover batter then top in the red bean paste.
(3) now, brush another piece of pancake with some batter then cover the other half of the filled pancake with it.
(4) once its done, preheat a wok with enough cooking oil and then fry pancake till brown & crispy.
(5) cut pancake into 6 or 8 slices and serve hot.

Note : its best to fry the pancake with medium heat till pancake slowly brown.

The bubbles are formed by the baking powder working well. It gives the pancake perfect crisp. I fried them for 2 times to give me the diehard crust. Though, it couldn't last for too long. You can still preheat it any time.

I can't wait to give it a BIG bite. Just look at the melting hot red bean paste. Ooooo..... so yummy ! Or you may try using phyllo pastry for the crust. I'm sure it turns out as wonderful. Anyway, hope you guys will like this too. Enjoy your week ahead everyone !
