The traditional peanut pancake is a popular breakfast staple as well as an all-day snack option you can find all around Singapore, from shoppings malls to food centres and pasar malam night markets. Think of it a huge “open-faced” griddle pancake sprinkled with a crunchy but fine mixture of roasted crushed peanut and coarse sugar, before being folded into half and cut into handheld pieces of sweet “pancake sandwiches”. Apart from the crushed peanut with sugar filling that’s commonly found between the soft, spongy chewy pancake with a delightful crisp surface, other variety include red bean paste, grated coconut, peanut butter, chocolate, creamed corn and even cheese.
Know as “mee chiang keuh” in Hokkien as well as various local dialect reference such as ban chiang kueh, mian jian gao, tai kau meen, apam balik, to name a few, the focus of this list is on the affordable traditional peanut pancake.
