Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

Apam balik (may also be called Peanut Turnover, Ban Jian Kuih, Chin Loong Pau, Martabak Manis, Terang Bulan, Apam Pulau Pinang or Kuih Haji) is a type of pancake from Malaysia. Apam Balik is usually sold at specialist roadside stalls throughout Malaysia. The texture of Apam Balik is akin to a crispier form of crumpets. With Malaysian peanut pancakes, you’d belong to either one of two camps – thin and crispy or thick and cakey.
