Indonesian Sweet Pancake ~ Martabak Terang Bulan

This used to be my favorite "snack" when I was still in Jakarta. One of Indonesian most popular street food. It's basically a pancake with yeast, so a lot thicker than the regular pancake, and also a lot sweeter, with all the additional fillings. It comes with many different filling combination of chocolate sprinkles, cheese, peanut, and durian.

Now that I can only find this sweet pancake/martabak terang bulan in indonesian bazaar (and it's a bit too expensive for me), I decided to make it on my own.

The good thing of making my own martabak terang bulan is I can adjust the amount of filling as I like. If you're like me, you may not put as much filling as in the original martabak terang bulan (the seller always put super generous amount of fillings!). And I like the standard chocolate sprinkles and cheese combination. But you can always add other types of fillings.

Martabak Terang Bulan (Indonesian Sweet Pancake)

Flour Mixture
- 125 gr all-purpose flour, sifted
- 25 gr granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 175 ml warm water (+/- 115 F)
- 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

Egg Mixture
- 2 eggs
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- 25 gr granulated sugar

Sprinkles and Fillings
- Granulated sugar
- Butter
- Sweet condensed milk
- Parmesan/cheddar cheese, chocolate sprinkles, chopped peanut.

- Mix all the ingredients (except the yeast) for the flour mixture until incorporated. Add yeast, mix well, and let it sit for 2 hours until foamy.
- Prepare the egg mixture. Mix well, then add egg mixture into the flour mixture.
- Grease non-stick skillet pan with butter. Heat it in low heat.
- Wait until the pan is fully heated, then pour the mixture into the pan. Make a little spin to make a thin layer in the sides of the skillet.
- Wait until it form bubbles and small holes on top of the pancake, then sprinkles some sugar evenly. After that, put the lid.
- Check often. When the top of the pancake is shiny, then it's done. Turn off the heat, and move the pancake quickly to a cutting board.
- While it's hot, grease the top of the pancakes with butter. Lightly add condensed milk, then add your preferable fillings.
- Cut pancake into half, and put one half on top of the other half.
- Ready to serve!
