sweet peanut pancakes in malaysia


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a recipe for those street treats in Malaysia--I ate them in Terrengannu and KL--sort of pancakes, batter ladled into a mould so that the sides are paper-thin and the bottom thickish and almost creamy-doughy. The pancake itself tasted of coconut and/or rice, they were topped with peanuts and palm sugar. I was told they also made them savoury, they made them many different ways in other places, but the sweet peanut-topped tropical pancakes were delish.

all suggestions appreciated!

thanks

One of the blog entries I read said you can put coconut in them (as a topping), so maybe the one you had also had coconut?

And you're welcome!

I hope you'll let us know how it turns out. It looks like a Thai street snack I've had. It might be fun to make it at home!

Yes, those!

When my dad and I went to Thailand together, I woke up the morning after we arrived to find him gone. He returned a short time later with bags full of khanom buang and kluay tod. He missed them so much, and hadn't had them in more than 10 years, so looking for them was one of the first things he did!

Must have some, too. I like the little mini ones. Maybe next year! (Or I could just eat the Malaysian version when I'm there later this year :cool: )

My recipe for Apam Balik:

220g self-raising flour

50gm sugar

½t bicarbonate soda

yellow coloring

1 egg

350ml low-fat milk (or just water)

Blend egg and sugar until frothy, add water, coloring and baking soda and gradually add flour. You might want to sieve the batter if it turns out to be lumpy but it usually won't.

Put a ladle of batter in non-stick pan and brush some on to the sides so that it has crispy 'sides' - just use the ladle in a circular motion.

Cover for a while until it's bubbly/half-cooked and then sprinkle some ground peanuts, sugar, and also cream style corn if you wish.

You can make 2 versions - one is the super crispy (spread the batter thinly) and the other more pancake-y version which is thicker.

(It's almost like a pancake batter, but no oils in the batter)

You can also add sliced bananas, and nutella or even peanut butter. :laugh: Fold it in half or roll it and then cut.

It's yummy any ways!

Hey, you were in Terengganu? When, where did you go, and what else did you eat? I haven't been on eGullet much for quite some time, so if I missed a trip report, please post a link.

      Hello! I'm fairly new to this site so I don't know if my search was weak. I'm trying to find a way to make Mandarin orange puree at home, but I couldn't find anything even similar in the forum. I am a home cook, but I have been making chocolate bonbons and other confections for over 4 years (intermitantly). It is too expensive for me to purchase this online- not because of the price of the puree, but the cost of shipping makes it prohibative. The recipes I've seen online are all differant and don't seem to be what I need. 
      I would love any help with this! I look forward to hearing and learning from those who have much, much more experience than me. Thanks!

      In hopes of sleeping better, etc, etc, I have currently given up gluten, dairy and now sugar.  The gluten and dairy pose no problems...the sugar does.  I am not happy using mannitol or erythritol or any of those artificial sweeteners...they give me severe digestive problems.   But I can tolerate stevia very nicely.  The only problem is that there doesn't seem to be much sweetened with this ingredient.
       
      I do have a carob/coconut oil/peanut butter/stevia candy of sorts.  I don't really like it all that much, but it does work.  That's about it.
       
      Has anyone any recipes for desserts using stevia?  Thanks.

      Ever since Todd talked making cupcakes I have been cupcake crazy. Although, I am not a cake maker but more of a pie person.
      My first dessert that I love that I make is my Coconut Cream Pie w/heavy whipped cream. I don't use low fat anything and probably angioplasties is necessary after this baby.
      My second is Peach Cobbler w/rich vanilla ice cream. I never met a cobbler that I didn't like, but peach is my favorite.
      I don't make these often because I wouldn't be able to get through the front door if I did.
      How about yours?

      Hi all!! 
      I work at an amazing little New Zealand Style ice cream shop in the beautiful Denver Colorado. I was hoping to get a little help on the subject of adding fruit into ice cream after extracting it and ensuring that, when the ice cream is frozen, the fruity bits don't turn into rock hard shards. I am planning on doing a cherry chocolate ice cream and I was going to soak some dried cherries that we're no longer using for something else. I was planning on using some brandy and a ton of sugar, but I was really hoping someone had a tried and true method they could send my way so that I KNOW that the fruit will be luscious as it's frozen. If you have a certain sugar ratio. I know there is the brix test, but to be honest it's been many years since pastry school and I am very rusty. Would love to hear from some of my fellow sugar-heads. 
      Thank you!
      Amy
