Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
Total: 45 minutes



  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, water, and salt until smooth. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes.

  2. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and add 1/2 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter onto the skillet, swirling it around to spread it into a thin circle. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the edges are crispy and the bottom is golden brown.

  3. Crack an egg onto the cooked side of the crêpe and spread it out gently with a spatula. Sprinkle some sliced scallions and cilantro on top. Fold the crêpe in half and cook for another 2 minutes until the egg is set.

  4. In a small bowl, mix together the hoisin sauce and soy sauce. Drizzle the sauce onto the crêpe and fold it in half again to create a pocket. Repeat with the remaining batter and filling.

  5. Serve the Jian Bing warm, cut into quarters, and enjoy!
