Apam Balik - Malay pancake :)

You have no idea how excited I am to try out all these Malay recipe I've found the last couple of weeks. One of which is Apam Balik and original recipe found here. My non-Malay family tried it and said it tasted like Pancake w/ Peanuts filling.

Since the original recipe is in Grams, I try to do my own conversation back to Cups.

Ingredients for batter

1 1/2 cups of flour

2 tsp of baking powder

3/4 tsp of baking soda

1/2 tsp of salt

1/2 cup of sugar

3/4 cup of water

3/4 cup of milk

1 egg
3 tblspoon melted butter

1 cups of toasted peanuts - grind coarsely

1/2 cup of sugar

some butter

For the rest of the instruction, just click
here. Please note that mine is a bit darker, could be because I used sugar cane sugar or I simply left it on the stove too long.

Other than that I also took some pics at church:

Tim Russert memorial

Another slow day at work...

I went to CNN's site and started to stream Tim Russert's memorial. So sad! I was working from home last week when I heard the news. It's just so sudden, so sad and so unpredictable! What a wonderful guy he was. This world need more people like Tim Russert. Eric and I watched some of the memorial clips last night on TV. We wonder will people say half of these wonderful things about us when we leave this world?!

Rest in peace, Mr. Tim Russert (1950 - 2008)
