Malaysian Style Hokkien Mee
I love pancakes! Especially the thick fluffy ones. They’re great any time of the day and its so easy to whip up. I made these last year for M’s birthday weekend and it took next to no time. The most time consuming part was peeling the apples.
You can get the recipe for the pancakes itself from the BBC food website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/fluffyamericanpancak_74828
I’ve used the recipe countless times and its always worked well, though I have tweaked the reciple slightly. I use 5oz flour and 4oz milk. I also reduce the sugar by half as I normally have it with maple syrup. The only thing you need to remember is that if you leave the batter sitting for a while it tends to thicken. If this happens, just add a little milk to loosen the batter up and you’re ready to go!
As for the Maple Glazed Apples; I just peeled, cored and sliced the apple then fried it in a little salted butter(like a teaspoon of butter). After about 2mins, I poured some maple syrup (about 2tbp) in the pan and left it to reduce. The syrup will reduce and thicken. I turned the apples to coat them in the thicken syrup. I was really tempted to dip my finger in the pan to taste the syrup but Don’t Do It!!! I know how tempting it can be but the syrup will be hot and you’ll just end up burning your finger, so don’t do it!
Now all that’s left is to assemble it. I cooked up some bacon as well, you dont have to have bacon, but it sure is nice with pancakes and apples 🙂
