Chinese Steamed Pancake Recipe

These Chinese steamed pancakes are called Bao Bing pancakes in China and are not like any other pancake recipe you know.

For one they are made from dough instead of a batter.

They are flavored with sesame oil to give them a savory taste. The oil has a nutty scent and flavor that translates to the pancake.

Warning to all who are sesame seed intolerant to not make this recipe.

These pancakes need to be really thin, almost translucent so you can see what you put inside. When you baked the pancakes you need to steam them.

I use a bamboo steamer with some baking paper to prevent the pancakes from sticking to the steamer.

You will be surprised to taste these as they taste just like the ones you eat in your favorite Chinese restaurant.

The shape might not be as perfect but the taste of these Mandarin pancakes is.

Peking Duck Pancakes Ingredients

  • sesame oil

How To Make Peking Duck Pancakes

The only that deviates quite a bit from flour tortillas is the kneading. Peking duck pancakes require far more kneading time.

But first things first.

How do we make the dough? Equal to tortillas so we start by putting the flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Stir through to mix the salt and flour before adding boiling water to it.

Now stir the water into the flour with a wooden spoon. Let it cool until you can knead the dough.

Here is where it differs from a tortilla. Flour a work surface and need the dough on the countertop for at least 10 minutes until you get a soft silky dough.

Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest for 30 minutes.

Then knead the dough for another 5 minutes. Then take the dough and roll it into a long sausage shape before cutting it into 7 or 8 pieces.

Now is time for the sesame oil. First to cover the dough balls and second to use to brush the skillet or baking pan.

When you dip a dough ball into the sesame oil take a rolling pin and start rolling the dough ball into a thin pancake.

The Peking duck pancake is very fragile so be careful when you lift it into a pan. Heat a pan on medium and bake the pancake.

Prevent the Mandarin pancakes from getting brown.

As soon as one is dry, turn and bake the other side of the pancake. Stack the pancakes and keep them warm in a clean kitchen towel.

They are ready to eat with :

  • Scallions cut Julienne
  • Peking duck and Hoisin sauce
  • Carrots, spring onions, cucumber, and onions cut Julienne

Before serving them with Peking ducks warm the pancakes in a bamboo steamer over boiling water.

How To Store Peking Duck Pancakes

To store your homemade Mandarin pancakes you can do three things:

  • Room temperature – When you are going to eat them straight away you can keep them outside the fridge. Just cover them with a clean kitchen towel or wrap them with some foil
  • Refrigerator – If you are going to eat them in a day or two you can keep them in the fridge. Again cover the pancakes to keep them from going dry
  • Freezer – Peking duck pancakes freeze really well. Put them in a freezer bag or a freezer-safe container.

How To Reheat Peking Duck Pancakes

You have several ways to reheat Peking duck pancakes:

  • Steamer – the recommended way to reheat these wrappers is in a steamer. Put a pan with water on the stove and heat. Take a bamboo steamer and put some parchment paper with holes in the steamer so the steam can reach the pancakes. When the water is boiling put the steamer on top. Heat until the pancakes are warm
  • Oven – you can also heat the pancakes in the oven. Wrap them in aluminum so they are completely covered. Heat the oven to 375℉. Put them in the oven and heat for 7-8 minutes or until warm
  • Air Fryer – you can also heat the wrappers in an Air Fryer. Preheat the Air Fryer to 350℉ for 3 minutes. In the meanwhile wrap the pancakes with aluminum foil. Put the wrappers in the basket and get for 5-6 minutes or until warm
  • Microwave – you can also heat the pancakes in the microwave. Cover them with some plastic wrap and heat for 30 seconds. Check to see if the wrappers are warm else repeat
