I remember how my friend, Harriet took my mother’s recipe literally. She loved my mum’s apong balik , a Peranakan pancake made out of santan (coconut milk), sugar and flour. The pancake batter was poured into a pan over a slow fire, When each pancake was almost cooked, it was topped with ripened bananas, folded over and ready to be eaten. It was absolutely delicious! Mum told her that to make the batter, she would need a kati of flour along with a few other ingredients. Harriet went home and followed the recipe faithfully but found to her dismay that the pancakes turned out hard and doughy. She reported the result to my mother.
