This is another re-visit: sweet coconut crêpe / kuih ketayap recipe... but this time I have a video to show ;P
Kuih Ketayap  with 'How to' video.

Its easy to make / cook or bake Malaysian sweet/ dessert or finger food but to explain?

I tell ya'.. it gives me a cold sweat, especially for a person who handled technical jargon almost half her life, and who can't really express herself well when it comes to communicating... 

I could do all the talking in my head, but when the words come out of my mouth...it just doesn't sound right!
Seems like my brain gets disconnected from my mouth as the words transcending. 

Oh yes... I do get that look "What are you talking about"!!!  or 'what are you mumbling about' a lot :(

Anyway ... I digress ;)
My good friend, Janet gave a kilo bag of desiccated coconut... yes a kilo!!! Oh and a kilo bag of raw peanuts too.
What else can I do with so much coconut and peanuts?

For the peanuts... I'll tell you my story some other time, just enough to say that my cooking experiment went awry :(.

Malaysian sweet treat that can be enjoyed either for breakfast, afternoon tea or as dessert.

Desiccated coconut! - you can do many wonders with desiccated coconut, either use it in cooking sweet dessert or finger food or uses it to enhance savoury and spicy food to the next level...

I made this sweet coconut crêpe, posted on my blog in late 2010.

It was in my early blogging years where the measurement is neither in grams nor lbs but it was in 'Approximation' or better known in Malay term~ 'agak-agak' ;P

So this time round... not only I give you an exact measurement of all ingredients, but I give you a video to show you how it is done :D

Hope you enjoy the post and video...
