Craving for some dessert but tired of the same sweet treats? Then, how about some fluffy pancakes with loads of extra scrumptious stuff? It’s called Mee Jian Kuih.


Traditional Fluffy Pancakes

Also known simply as fluffy peanut pancakes or “Granny” pancakes, this traditional Asian dessert is quite popular in several countries. What makes it super special is its sugary sweet peanut filling. This is the traditional version. These days, however, there are a lot of other filling options. Some of the popular ones are red bean paste, sweetened coconut flakes, peanut butter, and nutella. If you prefer, you may even try some Italian jams as filling instead.
