Combine Pancake Day and Chinese New Year!

                   If you want to celebrate both festivals in one, try Chinese Pancakes!!

Here is a recipe for sweet Chinese pancakes from www.smokywok.com

You will need:
1 egg
2 cups cake flour
4 heaped tbsps sugar (add more if desired)
Water (the ratio of water to flour is 3:1)
Enough oil for pan-frying

1 & 2. Add the egg to the flour in a bowl. Mix with a pair of chopsticks or a wooden spoon.

3. Add the water and mix well

4. Run the batter through a sift to get rid of the lumps.

5. The batter is supposed to be rather watery as you can see.

6. Start pan-frying the pancakes by ladling onto a non-stick frying pan. Fry with low heat to ensure the pancakes are cooked through and to avoid burning.

Give them a try!!
