Martabak Manis

Hello,

This following pan cake (or pancake), is on the thicker side and it is Indonesia specialty. We call it either Terang Bulan or Martabak Manis.

The topping or filling are various, depending the vendors and/or the provinces. For example, in East Borneo, they would have sticky black rice as the authentic filling. However, the common fillings/topping throughout Indonesia is either chocolate rice (grated chocolate), cheese, or a mix between chocolate and cheese. With either of these fillings, vendors would still top them with drizzle of sweetened condensed milk.
