Most populer filled-cake in Indonesia.... ;-)

This one traditional dessert is very easy to find in Indonesia. Especially in Jakarta. In every corner of the street, especially a crowded one, you would find a food seller of this one dessert.
Making this martabak is not that difficult, and the stuff you would find easy everywhere.. so jetzt geht´s los...

What you need:

Bowl A:

  • 250 gr flour
  • 50 gr sugar (normal sugar, the fine crystal one is even better!)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 350 ml water
  • 1 tsp instant yeast
all those above, except the instant yeast, beat all together in a bowl till smooth. When done, add in the instant yeast and stir. Leave it for about 2 hours, till the dough rises up.

Bowl B:

  • 4 eggs
  • 60 gr sugar
  • 1/4 baking soda
Beat all those in a bowl, doesnt need to beat too long, just to get all mixed well. Then mix bowl A and bowl B together.

One by one, put some portion in a pan, like you do a pancake. This one mixture will give about 4 portions of pancake.

Now for the filling you would need:

When one cake is done, brush the top thinly evenly with the slightly-salted margarine. Then pour generously the condensed milk, and then sprinkle some grated cheddar cheese. Cut the cake into two, fold them, and cut it again smaller for small serving.

Another version for the filling would be:

  • salty margarine, sweetened condensed milk, some shredded chocolate and the grinded peanuts.
