Baby Pancake Puffs

This baby pancake puffs with red bean paste are very popular in Malaysia. It is so captivating to watch how they are made and more fun when you make them at home.

1 level tsp instant yeast
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups warm milk
1 tbsp butter
Sweet red bean paste - make tiny 1/2 inch balls


Combine the flour, eggs, yeast, sugar, salt and half the milk. Whisk smooth. Now add the remaining milk and beat again.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow to rest for an hour.

Heat Baby pancake mould and grease the holes. When it sizzles, pour teaspoonfuls of the batter into the greased holes and drop a ball of red bean paste. Turn the puffs around as soon as the bottom has set and the uncooked batter will flow down to complete a ball. Cook until golden brown.

Aunty Lily, would any of your readers know where I can get Ovalette in Sydney, Aust? or similar product? I've looked in all the Asian shops, but can't find any cake emulsifer. Love to try your recipes.

Dear Lily,

Really enjoyed your blog. I am a Malaysian myself - do you know if the moulds are sold in Malaysia and is this mould similar to Aebleskiver mould (Danish Pancake balls)

Thank you and regards,

i have seen malaysians using the electric takoyaki moulds, so it must be available in malaysia or singapore.

I use the aebleskiver mould to make Takoyaki as they are bigger and can have more fillings. My daughter bought the 7 holes mould from penang but it is not made from cast-iron. Wonder how good it is cos i told her to keep it for herself. Anyone used this mould before? please give a review.

Dear Lily,

Thank you for your prompt reply - will be on the lookout for the mould when I go shopping this weekend.

Again, keep up the fantastic dishes - I am copying some of the dishes for the dinner table.

Warm Regards,
