Lotus Pancake 莲蓉窝饼

Lotus Pancake

I use the leftover lotus paste from the mooncake making to make this Lotus pancake. This lotus pancake is usually serve at the end of a Chinese wedding dinner, a symbol of sweet ending.

The outer layer is very crispy but i have to improve the rolling skill. I need to roll thinner next time as you can see the middle part of the pancake is quite thick
