@#$#!$@! OH NOOOO!!!!! My Indo Pancakes!!!!!
Please pardon my French...but you saw the above picture...to me, such an event called for a shriek in a foreign language, with a major volume increase, in a substantially higher pitch (only my neighbor's dog could hear), to be typed in bold, red font, with a lot of exclamation marks *sob sob*
Call me a drama queen, cos I really am one hehehe....this is how it all happened:
1. It was so early in the morning and I couldn't sleep thinking about Indonesian thick pancakes
2. I CRAVED it...as in I gotta have it and I GOTTA HAVE IT NOW!!!
3. So I woke up and found a recipe online (oh no...now I can't remember where did I get this recipe)
4. I didn't have all ingredients listed in the recipe (such as instant yeast), but referring to point #2, I decided to still go for it
5. The first batch wasn't that bad....although the pancake didn't raise as it should've (no yeastttt), but it was still yummy yum yum!
6. After pouring the 2nd batch into the hot pan, I reduced the heat to minimum, and....did something we SHOULD NEVER EVER EVER EVER! DO...which was...
7. TAKING PICTURES OF THE FIRST BATCH RESULT WHILE THE SECOND BATCH IS FRYING AWAY BY ITSELF WITHOUT SUPERVISION
8. Gone was my hope NOT to share these decadent, thick, rich and creamy goodness...I had to give half to my sous chef...
- 1 cup of self raising flour
- 3 pressed tbsp sugar
- half tsp salt
- half cup of coconut milk
- 1/4 cup peanut oil
- 2 eggs, beaten
- butter, chocolate rice, condensed milk, grated cheese, peanut chunks, etc (optional) for filling
Combine flour, sugar, salt in a mixing bowl, combine liquids in another bowl, mix well, pour batter into frying pan and cook on low heat, cover, it is done when the bottom is browned (NOT black) and you see bubbles on top, just pan-fry one side, do not flip. Slather butter, chocolate rice, condensed milk, grated cheese, peanut chunks, other anything else you desired for filling...
9. Determined not to be a quitter (aka still hungry), I scraped the burnt side of the second batch and still polish off the edible side anyway...
10. For what it's worth...the edible side was more than edible...unexpectedly, it was DELICIOUS
