Martabak Manis (Indonesian Style Thick Pancake) with Ovomaltine


Ingredients:
  • 5 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 cups water or as needed
  • 2 tbsp instant yeast
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp sugar
Spread and topping:
  • 2 to 3 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp salted butter or margarine
  • classic choices: condense milk, chocolate granules (meises), roasted peanuts, roasted sesame seeds, cheddar cheese, banana
Directions:
  1. Combine the water, coconut milk, salt, sugar, and instant yeast in a large bowl, set aside
  2. In another bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and baking powder, mix well
  3. Add the egg into the water mixture, following by the flour mixture
  4. Let the batter rest for at least an hour
  5. Grease the cast iron pan with a little bit of butter, pour the batter in low heat, with the lid on
  6. When it's half cooked, add the sugar (topping), cook for another minute until done
  7. Once it's done, transfer immediately onto a cutting board. Spread the butter, add topping of your choice, fold the martabak, spread tiny amount of butter on top, and cut

When you ordering Martabak from street food stall you can choose one topping or combination of two until three toppings. Nutella, Toblerone, Oreo, KitKat, and any other sweet snack became popular lately as topping for Martabak. I made mine with Ovomaltine, but I skipped the condense milk because I don't want mine to be over sweet, well actually I hate condense milk.

Note: It's a large batch, made about two large Martabak, so hmm maybe you want to make just half of it by cutting all ingredients amount in two.

  4. Bagi Anda yang punya usaha martabak, saya punya kabar gembira untuk Anda. Saya memiliki Packaging Makanan yang dapat Anda cetak dengan gambar suka-suka pada bagian atas kemasan makanannya. Kemasan makanan ini anti minyak dan juga anti bocor.

    Dijamin martabak milik Anda takan membuat pelanggan Anda resah dnegan kemasan lama yang mudah bocor dan mengeluarkan minyak berlebih.

Awalnya agak ragu karena website baru. Tp ternyata ok kok, cepet sampe, soalnya online store lokal (Indonesia) ternyata. Recommended for online shopper :) Semoga info dari saya bermanfaat :)
