Home Style Ban Chien Kuih [Pancake]

I prepared this pancake for Sunday breakfast.
Makes 26 pieces from this quantity
Ban Chien Kuih
Ban Chien Kuih with Peanut Filling
This batter is only suitable for home cooking because it cannot be kept too long and does not use alkaline water. It is a nice batter suitable for any fillings [peanut, tuna mayo, meat floss, sambal dried prawns etc].  Tinned corn kernels and chocolate chips can also be added. 

I used two types of fillings here [peanut and tuna mayo] because the pancake quantity can make about 15 medium size pieces. 

Ingredients For Batter
330 plain flour
70 gm caster sugar
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp instant yeast
420 ml water
3 eggs
Mix all ingredients together
Add water gradually until smooth
Batter Proofed for 30 minutes
Pancake ready to add filling

[1]    Peanut Filling [mix together]
300 gm toasted peanuts [grounded] [about 1 cup]
50 gm castor sugar [1/2 cup]
2-3 tbsp roasted sesame seeds - crushed with pestle.mortar [1/4 cup]
Peanut Filling added
 [2]   Tuna Mayo Filling
1 can tinned tuna mayo
1 small zuchini - cut shreds
Remove pancake before adding tuna filling
Add Tuna Mayo & Zuchini Filling
  1.  Put all batter ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir until well combined.  Rest for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Heat up a non stick pan and rub with a little oil with kitchen paper.  Put is a small ladle of batter to make a thin pancake.  Cover and cook at medium low heat for about 1 minute or until cooked.  [To make a big piece, pour in some batter and swirl to fill the pan to make into a round pancake].
  3. Sprinkle peanut filling on top and fold up into a half moon shape.  Remove and serve.
  4. For Tuna Mayo Filling, remove cooked pancake on board to cool before putting fillings.
