Yen Can Cook ~ Apam Balik (Peanut & Corn Pancake)

Cooking definitely one of the skills or hobbies that most of us have picked up during the MCO period. ‘Practice Makes Perfect’, cooking can be easy if you know the right techniques, so unearth the inner chef in you and let your loved ones indulge in some proper (?) home-cooked meals. Oh ya, do you know there is a Facebook group Masak Apa Tak Jadi Hari Ni with videos and photos of kitchen disasters? Check out the page, it’s rather “entertaining”◔_◔

I believe your social media must have been flooded with many viral recipes during the MCO period, which included the most famous Dalgona coffee, soufflé omelette, sweet potato balls, Mustabak Maggie, Pan Mee and assorted no bake cakes/cookies. Today I’m going to share one of the recipe in the above mentioned viral recipe list —> Apom Balik.


Ingredients (Serving: 5-6pcs)


150g self raising flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 egg

40g castor sugar

160ml water


Coarse Sugar, creamed corn, crushed peanut & butter


Step 1: In a mixing bowl, add in all batter ingredients, stir well until all ingredients are combined evenly. Set aside for 20 minutes.

Step 2: Heat up a non-stick pan, turn the heat to low and pour in one ladle of batter into the pan to form a round shape pancake. Cover the pan for approximately 1 minute or until small air bubbles appear.

Step 3: Add butter, cream corn, crushed peanuts and sugar onto the pancake. Fold the pancake into half once the bottom surface is browned. Serve.
