Cendol Pancakes

After posting the cendol recipe recently, I had began a cendol craze; I posted a cendol toast up on my Instagram a few days ago. That was sorta an idea of debunking cendol onto a plate. I normally will skip posting some recipes here and post it directly via Instagram instead. Maybe I should start posting recipes regularly on both ends once time permits. In the meantime, here is the cendol toast post.

I am still using the same old pancake batter from Rose Levy Beranbaum. I switched and added a couple of ingredients so that the pancakes have the cendol vibes. I also tried to make these pancakes 100% vegan, but replacing eggs seems tricky. I do want my pancakes to be light, airy and fluffy, which is why the eggs were separated and incorporated in different stages. If you lovely people knows any vegan tricks in replacing eggs resulting in the same texture, please kindly let me know.

The place where I reside has insane humidity, ice cream and clotted coconut cream started to melt before I can snap some photos. Perhaps I should assemble in an air-conditioned environment? I will certainly give that idea a try in the future if I am dealing with any cream related recipes. In the meantime, let's get started with this recipe and indulge in some stacking layers of cendol pancakes.

  9. Gently stir in the melted butter and 4 heaped TBSP of cendol.

  10. *In a skillet over medium-low heat, add butter. Once it start to melt, keep an eye on it, as it can go from browning to burning very fast. Once it start to become dark brown, remove from heat. Transfer into a measuring cup over a weighing scale. If the weight is reduced, add in more water till it reached 57g. Set aside to cool slightly before incorporating.*
