How I learned about Pandan
When I first met my husband's family who originates from Malaysia, I got to try these delicious Pandan Crepes! I will never forget the first time I tried them because they were soft, chewy and had that gorgeous pandan aroma.
From that moment I was hooked and I had to make everything Pandan flavoured like these fluffy pandan pancakes. So look out, I'll be producing more recipes with this wonderful flavour!
What is Pandan?
Pandan is a herbaceous tropical plant that grows in Southeast Asia. It's a very fragrant plant thanks to it's vanilla and floral grass scent. The plant looks similar to a palm with vibrant green leaves that are long and pointy. The leaves are utilized for their delicious taste in many Thai and Southeast Asian Dishes. Pandan is usually sold as an extract, paste or powder to flavour treats.
It's commonly used to flavour many Thai or Southeast Asian desserts, such as cakes, jellies and more. Sometimes the leaves are used to wrap sticky with as the flavour seeps into the sticky rice making it taste wonderful!
Where can I buy Pandan Essence?
You can usually buy it from most asian grocers on online. Just search online for "Pandan Leaf Essence" or Extract. I would not recommend using the powders unless you're familiar with using them.
Pin for later!

Pandan Pancakes (25 min Recipe)

- 2 tbsp vegan butter melted
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp pandan extract or essence
- In a mixing bowl, mix your dry ingredients together, followed by your wet ingredients. Mix together until well combined.
- Then in a non-stick griddle set on medium heat, add 1 tbsp of vegan butter. Pour ¼ cup of the batter into the griddle. Spread out with a spoon.

Repeat this for as many pancakes that you can fit onto the pan to reduce cooking time.
