Apom Balek Nyonya

Unlike the Chinese version which is prepared in a large pan before being cut into wedges, the Peranakan Apom Balek are individually crafted in a special mould that is also used for apom berkuah. It has a slight chewy texture and retains a slightly moist interior as the pancakes which are often spiked with durian of bananas are folded into halves, hence giving rise to their names. The version we make is unique to the Peranakans in Singapore and Melaka, previously a common sight during traditional Peranakan weddings but increasingly scarce nowadays as well.
