"Homemade egg roll wrappers can be a real treat for the self-sufficient cook! Getting the wok to the correct temperature may be a challenge. If the batter sets before the wrapper is fully formed, the wok is too hot; if the edges are thin, it's too cool. Experiment and enjoy!"

These work great, but are definitely an acquired talent! I made them in a small frying pan set just below medium. I actually used about 1/8 the batter per wrapper (not 1/4), but doubled the recipe so I could throw out ones I ripped. They ended up being 5-6" by 5-6" (I tried to make them square-ish so they'd be easier to wrap). Be careful not to over cook them - the bottom side should be barely, barely golden, the top just barely not wet. Let them cool for a minute before wrapping, or they tear. Don't let them go too long, though, or they crack. DO NOT OVER FILL! Each wrapper makes one egg roll appx. the length of your thumb and 2-3 times the size. Good luck!
The egg mixture for these wrappers came out way too thick & lended a very doughy and chewy texture.
Am I doing something wrong?
This is a great recipe for homemade egg roll wrappers. Have some patience - it does take a little practice, and make sure you roll them thin. I had no problems with them turning out like "crepes." Just make sure you fry them long enough after filling.
Tasty, easy and great to use! Try them with the sambusa recipe here on allrecipes, or eat them by themselves. I found that a skillet was much easier to use than a wok.
These are great! (and easy once you get the hang of it)..To keep them from getting too thick, pour the batter in a circle... literally an "O" shape, instead of in a pancake-like circle. Then pick up the wok and shake/roll it around until the dough is spread thin and the circle is filled in. I found I didn't need any oil in my Teflon coated wok. One batch made about 6 wraps for me.
These were fabulous. I bought rice paper instead of egg roll wrappers and thought I was doomed (I had already made the filling and everything!). Luckily my husband checked Allrecipes. This recipe saved my dinner. It didn't make enough, so I had to make another batch (even for just the 2 of us). But they are SO easy it wasn't a big deal.
Excellent! I added parsley flakes for color and some onion powder for a little flavor and they were super!
This a great recipe. (I have used thhis recipe for more than 30 years) I often have to double or triple it. If you have any dough left - bake it with cinnamon and sugar as a treat.
