Nian Gao Pancake

Pin It Now!

This is a simple pancake and easy to make at home. I used to make for my kids with different filling like sausage and cheese, tuna, red bean etc. This time I use nian gao. It is best to serve when the filling is still warm and gooey. Do try!

Source: 阿芳的3杯面粉
Ingredients: yields 12 pieces
3 cups plain flour
2 tbsp castor sugar
1½ tsp yeast
1 cup water

(B) Filling
12 slices of nian gao

1. Put all the ingredients (A) into a bowl. Stir with chopstick till all the flour coated with liquid.
2. Start to knead till form smooth dough.
3. Cover and rest for 25-30 minutes.
4. Transfer to working surface. Divide into 12 equal portions. Shape into balls and rest for 10 minutes.

5. Wrap each ball with a slice of nian gao. Shape into round and flatten. Rest the pancake for 10 minutes.
6. Heat up a wok (prefer nonstick or thick base wok). Coat the wok surface with little oil. Arrange the pancake inside the wok. Cook on low heat about 4-5 minutes each side. Enjoy!
