This is one of my favourites to make whenever I have visitors over at my place. As mentioned in my recipe post yesterday, my friend K came by for a catch up session and besides the Pear and Peach Muffins that I had baked, I also made Mee Chiang Kueh for her. Always a joy to have her company and I just couldn’t resist making lots of food to share. 🙂
Before we start cooking the pancake, there’s some pre-preparation to do and that is to allow the batter to sit for an hour or so till it becomes foamy and bubbly like in the above picture. This way, the pancake will have a light, fluffy texture with a nice honeycomb effect.
Our local Mee Chiang Kueh normally come filled with either red bean paste, peanuts & sugar or sweetened coconut. Not a big fan of the latter so I omitted coconut filling.
This was the red bean paste version I made.
And this was the peanut-sugar one.
By the way, I used a Happycall pan to make these Mee Chiang Kueh but if you don’t have it, you can also use a regular non-stick, flat-based frying pan or skillet.
