Apam Balik (Pancakes with peanut & sweet corn filling)

Kuala Lumpur is a food haven, everywhere you turn, there is multitudes of street/hawker food from breakfast to lunch, tea time, dinner and through to supper. Malaysians simply loves food!

One of the many street food that we miss in Malaysia is this sweet treat, the "apam balik" normally served during tea time. It is basically pancake filled with creamed sweetcorn, sugar and crushed peanuts. So off to google I go and found this recipe from the net and tried it out. It turned out quite nicely and I suggest you give it a try.



2 cups self raising flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 medium egg
1 3/4 cup milk
a few drops of yellow coloring


1 cup roasted peanuts - crushed roughly
1 can creamed sweetcorn
1 cup sugar


Add all batter ingredients into mixer and mix well until no lumps are present. Set aside for 30 minutes.

Heat non stick pan and brush lightly with butter.
Pour 1 ladle of batter onto the pan once hot on medium heat. Cover pan and wait till bubbles are formed on the surface and sprinkle sugar, peanuts,corn and a pinch of butter.

Remove once sugar is melted on the surface, fold into half and serve.

Repeat until all batter is used. Enjoy!
