Apam Balik Malaysia, ban jing kueh 慢煎糕

My favourite food is 'Apam Balik'! (although very fattening~ @_@")
慢煎糕了! (虽然会越吃越肥~)

Ready to eat!


Apam Balik also knows as 'Apom Balik', is one of Malay Nusantara traditional cakes. In chinese people name it as 'ban jing kueh'。 It is a thick cake coated with butter layer and contains peanuts and sweet corn that folded into two.
'Apam Balik' 亦被称为 'Apom Balik',是一种
印度尼西亚的传统美食。华人统称'ban jing kueh' 或是‘慢煎糕’。它是涂有牛油外层的糕,内含有花生及绞碎的玉米。

To be more detail, it starts with mixture of flour, soda water, baking powder, yeast. The 'apam balik' usually baked using a frying pan shown below where butter, sugar, peanuts and sweet corns are sprinkled in before removed from the pan.

There are actually 2 types of 'apam balik':

i) Traditional Apam Balik 传统慢煎糕
ii) Crispy Apam Balik. 香脆慢煎糕

If you wish to learn how to cook (for me... @@"), i recommed you to read:
Lily's blog 1, 2, 3. or myresipe

You can easily get 'apam balik' in night market, or stalls.

Hmmmm... hope can eat this afternoon~

Anyone like to eat this too?
