Sweet Potato Green Tea Pancake Roll

This Sweet Potato Green Tea Pancake Roll is a beautiful, easy and healthy recipe that can be served for morning breakfast or afternoon snack. In the recipe only few ingredients are needed, you may also adjust the the amount of butter used. The texture of this sweet potato roll is very soft and tasted like  "angku kuih" with its naturally sweetness and green colour on the pancake ~ definitely a keeper! You can even chill this roll and serve as a cold snack too.

Here is the recipe adapted from 懂得吃就能保青春

  60. Hi Anncoo, guess what, yesterday I went shopping with my family and suddenly I saw this small square flat frypan(may be it's abt 15cm x 15cm or smaller) displayed just at the front door of a cookware shop, I just thought of this superb dish immediately. I wished that I had more time so I could go inside the shop and looked for a bigger size one hahaha, next time, there is always next time.

  61. Thank you Lyn :)

    Thank you Caio for your compliment. I love your omelett with extra herbs in it. Sounds so delicious :)
