For 3 pancakes:

8 Tbs high gluten wheat flour
2 1/3 Tbs corn starch
220 ml water
pinch of salt

Mix together batter ingredients and let rest 10 minutes (you can also add scallions).
For each pancake, beat 1 egg with 1 Tbs water and 2-3 Tbs chopped scallions and a pinch of salt.
Heat pan, oil lightly, pour 1/3 of batter and let it spread out into a thin pancake.
When half-transparent, flip over and pour egg mixture over and spread evenly.
At this point you can pour a little bit of oil on the side and shake the pan to make it go underneath, for a crispier pancake.
When the egg is halfway set, flip again and cook for a few more seconds.
Roll up (with egg on inside or outside), transfer to plate and cut into sections.
Serve with sweet/spicy sauce or thick soy sauce.

You can add pork sung, cheese, ham, bacon, etc.

One of my favorite Taiwanese foods is our breakfasts. Dan bing, which means egg pancake, is part of a typical Taiwanese and Chinese breakfast. You’ll find that different areas make their pancakes differently. Some make them into a roti-like pancake, whereas my family makes them into a softer pancake.
