Thai Coconut Pancakes ขนมครก - Episode 155

Thai Coconut Pancakes

This is one of my favorite breakfast smacks, although it can be dessert as well. Thai Coconut Pancakes are very small compared to what you might be used to. They are typically just a few inches in diameter and have a rounded bottom. You can top these little pancakes with your favorite fruit or veggie. I chose three of the most common toppings of my childhood, taro, corn, and green onions. I know what you're thinking, it's the same thinkg that I thought the very first time I ate this, "green onion on a pancake?" Well, yes, it goes together perfectly. You're going to have to trust me on this one.
