Ban Jian Kuih III

My friends did not like Ban Jian Kuih II as they said that it tasted too much of alkali. So, have to search and tweak again. I came to realised that there is an Indonesian Cake called 'Terang Bulan' which is quite similar, only the filling is different. So, here i go again, making it this time with an egg and less alkali solution. It turned out pretty good for now, cos i am still trying to figure how to make it more chewy.


1 Egg
225 ml water
1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp milk powder
1/2 salt
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsps baking soda

Filling: Peanut , Sesame seeds, sugar, butter/margarine.


Whisk the eggs, pour the water and keep stirring until it makes bubble.

Fold in flour, sugar, milk powder and salt until the ingredients are combined.- Stir in vegetable oil.
Leave to rest for 1/2 - 1 hr.
Heat fry pan on medium heat.
Add in baking soda and whisk well to combine.

Pour batter into fry pan which has already been warmed.
Using the base of the ladle to swirl the batter in a circular motion so that the sides of fry pan has a thin coating of batter. (This thin coating will be crispy when Ban Jian Kuih is ready).
Cover the fry-pan with a fitting lid.
Cook it until the surface has pores.
Dust it with sugar , peanuts and sesame seeds.
Cover the pan again until well done.
Lastly drop some butter or margarine.
Fold in half and remove to cake rack to cool before slicing and serve.
