I hope your area is getting warm this weekend. Ours is getting warm although will be rain for the whole weekend. Well I guess you have to take it over the freezing weather.
Speaking of cold weather don't you like to relate it with food ? When I was in my country this martabak manis is one of my favorite delicatessen food. I have never made it there. We always bought it.
Since I cant found it anywhere in bakery here where I live. I tempted to made it myself. Sure, was not as good as the one sold in my country. Or Indonesian food store in NY. But it was close enough to satisfied my craving. My husband love it as well. The one with coconut filling.
Martabak Manis ( Indonesian Pancakes )
1/2 tbsp instant yeast
1 cup warm milk
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp margarine (and more for brushing pan and pancake
Possible Filling Combinations
Peanuts (crushed)I used walnut
Chocolate rice ( I use chocolate chips)
Shredded cheddar cheese
1.In a small bowl sift sugar, salt, flour and salt.
2. In a big bowl mix all the ingredients with warm milk,egg and let it sit for 1-2 hours place it in a warm/room temperature.
3. Preheat the skillet or griddle with LOW HEAT. Grease the pan and sides with a little margarine. Pour the batter, cover and cook until you can see bubbles start to form. This will take approximately 10-15 minutes or until top is full of holes. Ensure that your heat is LOW so that the skin doesn’t burn. The level of the batter should not exceed half the height of the skillet.
4. Spread margarine on top and finally sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese, chocolate and crushed peanut. Remove from the pan and fold it in half immediately like the shape of a semicircle. This will prevent the cake from cracking.
Spread the outer surface with margarine to keep the cake moist. Best served warm! Enjoy !!!
