Peanut turnover pancake (Apam Balik)

Apam Balik is a popular Malaysian street food dessert: a sweet folded pancake filled with sugar, peanuts, and creamy sweet corn. I grew up eating this pancake; as a child, I always get my mother to buy me some when she takes me to the market.

The traditional filling consists of peanuts, sugar, and cream of corn. Just like pancakes, you can add any fillings you like – fruits, chocolate, jam, honey ..etc. There is a thin and thicker version. I prefer mine thicker; I like the chewier soft mouthfeel.

I got the recipe for this turnover pancake from elmundoeats. (
