Appam Balik

Apam balik is Malaysian version of pancake. It has filling of sugar, peanuts and creamy sweet corn.

1 cup all purpose flour
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 tsp double action baking powder
1 tsp soda bicarbonate
1/4 cup sugar
2 drops yellow coloring
1 tsp vanilla extract

120 g melted butter
150 gm fine granulated sugar
1 cup crushed honey roasted peanuts
1 cup sweet corn (or more if u like)

In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and bicarbonate. Add egg and milk and stir well. Add food coloring and vanilla. Leave aside covered, to rest for at least 30 minutes.


Heat a non-stick pan (*I used a 23cm frying pan) on medium fire. Pour half of the batter. Pour in enough batter to make pancakes that are of your desired thickness, and cook till the surface of the batter becomes bubbly. Add the sprinkle sugar, crushed peanuts and sweet corn. Spread the melted butter all over the fillings.

Cook till the bottom of pancake is golden brown.


Fold the pancake into a half and leave to cool. (it will be crispy as soon as it gets cold)
