Last night, my daughter Erin has already told me what she wanted to have for her snack box today. But I forget, did she say pancake or crepes? Since I bookmarked this gluten-free pancake from tabloid Saji for such a long time, I decided to try it. Hope that it was a pancake that she wanted.
This recipe uses glutinous flour and rice flour instead of wheat flour, that's what catches my eyes at the first time. Then, the red kidney beans as the filling made me more willing to try. Because I still had soy milk in the fridge, I then used soy milk instead of cow milk. And because I didn't have baking powder, I just omitted it. Then, because I am not a sweet tooth, I reduced the sugar amount into only 25 gr.
How's the result? The sweetness, for me, was just fine. But if you like sweet things please feel free not to reduce it. The cocoa was so strong, tend to a bit bitter, but could cover the taste of the flours, the soy milk, and the red kidney beans completely. However, the texture was not fluffy.
When Erin came down the kitchen, she asked me, 'what are you making mommy?'. 'Pancake', I replied. 'But, mommy, I said I wanted crepes', she said. 'Oh, really?' I replied. Oke then, I'll make another batch'... I added the soy milk into 200 ml to make the crepes batter and reduced the cocoa a little bit. This crepes was soft but turned crispier if we cook it a bit longer. The sweetness and chocolate taste was just fine.
My children liked both the pancake and the crepes...And, sssst....they never know that the filling had red kidney bean inside. They thought it was just chocolate paste...
