Apom Balik, also called as Appam/Apam Balik is a type of pancake with influence from the Chinese and Malay elements.

Apom Balik is cooked in a specially made copper pan that usually has about 9 holes on it.

The batter is made of simple ingredients using coconut milk, shredded coconut, sugar, eggs and rice milk.

The secrets lies in the way of how apom is cooked. It has to be cooked just right, and comes out with bubbly fluffy texture.

Half way through the cooking, each of these bite size pancakes are added with slices of ripen Pisang Raja (a type of banana) and spoonful of sweet corns.

The pancake are then quickly folded in half and left on a tray to cool off a little before packing.

Heads up! When it comes to food and experience, opinions varies from person to person. So please take ours with a pinch of salt.
