Oi Apam, Balik!!

Woke up in the morning, and the first sentence popping out from my mouth is.. "What are we having for breakfast?" Soon, this will be a typical morning habit. I look forward to Saturday and Sunday coz there'll always be nice morning meals to look forward to, coming from a 'tam chiak poh' (greedy girl). This morning we made.. I mean Adrian made 'apam balik' - the thin version kind, the more of a crispy crepe/pancake type.
Some call it Ban Chien Kueh, some call it 'Tai Gau-Meen'. This kuehs are favourite pasar malam food. Still remembered Adrian and I and another couple -Tim and Janet used to head to the pasar malam in SS4 for dinner before our bowling session in Tropicana. How I miss those days.
For the batter, we used flour, a pinch of baking powder, milk and an egg. After preparing the batter, pour a little to the pan and quickly spread it across the pan evenly. Oh, before pouring the batter, rub some butter/margarine unto the pan.
For the filling, we sprinkle some sugar, then add a generous amount of crunchy peanut butter and creamy corn. Leave it to cook for awhile, then fold the pancake into a half and leave to cool. Voila!I suppose you can put any sweet fillings like red beans, sweet coconut, nutella, chocolate, kaya to your apam balik.

The final product. You can just stand in awe admiring the beauty of the scene when the peanut butter and corn ooze out of the apam balik. Amazing start to a day. And we made extra to keep for snacks later. Yummmmiehh!!

Also , I am looking forward to dinner tonight. Adrian will be making his char siew. The pork has been marinated since last night and is sitting in the fridge right now *drools*
