Martabak Manis (Indonesian Style Sweet Thick Pancake)

Martabak (Indonesian Style Sweet Thick Pancake)

I had baking blue lately... plus the unpredictable weather, making me lazy to spend too much time in the kitchen, i rather spend my time with my Ellyn.

I attempt to try this recipe because i found simple and easy recipe from my blogger friend Sefa (i wish you get welll soon Mba). I used to buy this pancake in Jakarta, few years ago, my favorite flavor is actually coconut and brown (chocolate) rice.

Anyway, you can eat this for breakfast or tea time. Enjoy...
