A savoury, flavour-packed gift from Vietnam, bánh means "cake" while xèo refers to the sizzling sound it makes when the rice batter hits the hot pan. So if you're unsure of the Vietnamese pronunciation here, "sizzle cake" is appropriate, too!
*Tip: Pancake frying technique: Ideally you want to use a 28cm diameter non-stick pan, and heat on medium heat for a minute — the pan must be dry, fuming, and importantly sizzling hot! Make sure the stove's flame is just hitting the base of the pan, not curving upward around the sides.
