Banana Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut cream

  • 2 ripe bananas mashed
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in 2 tablespoons water cornstarch slurry


  • Combine rice flour, salt, sugar and yeast in a large bowl.

  • Heat a skillet and lightly coat it with a little oil. Spray a 1/4 measuring cup with non stick spray. Scoop batter into this cup and place on hot skillet.
  • Using a wet spatula, flatten the batter into a pancake. Cook on medium heat until golden brown on both sides. Repeat until all the batter is finished.
  • Serve with warm banana sauce.


  • Use pandan extract or pandan paste if you cannot source pandan leaves.
  • Make sure to use regular rice flour; not sticky rice/ glutinous rice flour.
