I don’t usually post recipes back to back, but a fantastic girl from work, Melanie who gave me those beautiful button earrings that I posted a while ago, gave me this recipe. She also gave me the Pandan extract, coconut milk, tapioca starch and rice flour to make them. She is awesome to give me such a great gift, goodness knows I love to try out a new recipe and to give me everything I needed to try them is amazing too. So this morning I tried out the recipe and I am in love with them…they are so freaking good!! They are sweet and slightly nutty like pistachios with a slight floral note. So amazingly good that I ate them hot fresh off the waffle iron with no syrup or fruit.
Now be aware that the Pandan extract is a very deep green and will colour your waffles a lovely shade of green. This is supposed to happen. Pandan extract can be purchased at an Asian food store, just ask for it if you can’t find it. I hope you try this recipe out.
Bahn Kep La Dua. Vietnamese Coconut Pandan Waffles
1 egg beaten
1/2 can of coconut milk
1 tablespoon of melted butter
1/2 tsp Pandan extract
1/4 cup rice flour or tapioca flour
1/2 cup gluten-free flour
4 tablespoons of sugar
1 tsp of baking powder
Pinch of salt
Oil or spray for greasing waffle iron
Preheat your waffle iron. Mix all dry ingredients in one bowl. Mix all wet ingredients in another. Mix the two together but do not over mix, just til smooth.
Cook in your waffle iron until lightly browned. Enjoy with fruit or yogurt, I think they are sweet enough that they can be eaten without syrup. I absolutely love them. Hope you try this recipe out. Cheers, Michele
