This is Penang Ban Chang Kuih, is a type of Penang pan cake, literally means million heated cake. It is pan cake which is made from flour and dusted with sugar and ground peanut, then with paste of magerine. The original Ban Chang Kuih is of bigger and higher, which was prepared by using one big pan. The seller will cut the big cake into smaller portion. In those day, the pan cake is only plain or pan cake with white sugar. Later black sugar(it is actually brown sugar, but Penang people called it black sugar in Hokkian) provided another alternative.
The stall we visited is at Burma Road, Pulau Tikus, beside Solok Moulmein ; just opposite the police station,in front of a coffee shop called Swee Kong.The man has been in the business for more than 10 years, it was a popular stall. You can see cars parking beside to wait for their turn to buy the pan cake.
Price: RM 0.60 – RM 2 depending on the ingridients
