Dadar Gulung is the real name for Balinese coconut crepes. They are traditionally not vegan but it’s easy to replace the egg and butter with a flax egg and some canola oil (for frying). I discovered these pancakes for the first time on the North West coast of Bali and they are actually pretty prominent in all of Indonesia. The coconut filling is delicious and they make a great little dessert served with some coconut or vanilla ice cream on the side 🙂
- 1 cup coconut flakes
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 flax egg (1 tsp ground up flax with 2 tsp water)
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1/3 cup coconut milk
- water as needed
- For the filling, just mix coconut sugar, coconut flakes and water in a pot on low heat until it sticks together like a paste.
- For the crepe dough, mix flour and salt, then add flax egg and coconut milk slowly until a smooth, not too thick dough is formed. Add water if you want to make it a little thinner.
- Heat your skillet with canola oil (enough so the crepe doesn’t stick) and pour about 3 tablespoons of dough in the skillet. Bake until done on one side, then flip. Repeat until there is no liquid dough left. Makes 4 to 6 crepes depending on how thick you want them to be.
- Place crepe on a plate, add a good teaspoon of filling (or a little more) and roll. Repeat with all crepes.
Serve with some cocoa nibs or some vegan ice cream.
