Learn Indonesian ^^
Coconut = kelapa
Steam / Steamed = kukus / dikukus
Cake = kue
Original name of this cake is Putu Ayu (I don’t understand what it means :p)
So, since my
photographer husband wasn’t home yet when I made this cake. I couldn’t take picture of the ingredients. Sorry 😦
This is because I’m the kind of person who doesn’t want to learn something I don’t like or at least no interest in it. Yeah, that’s me. Luckily my husband is the same so I don’t have to feel so guilty about it :p
Back to the recipe! I got this recipe from my aunty. She has small kiosk selling sweet and savoury snacks. They are all sooo good. So hopefully she won’t be angry with me when she found out I share this with you guys 😉
What you need are (for 24 cupcakes):
3oo grams sugar (I used only 260 grams)
300 grams flour
2 dl coconut milk
1 tsp pandan paste
1 tsp green colouring
-Heat the coconut milk, when it’s boiling take off from the stove right away and set aside (to cool down before you use it)
-Preheat your steamer with medium heat.
-Whisk eggs and sugar until pale and fluffy.
-Add flour little by little.
-Add pandan paste and green food colouring.
-Lastly add in the coconut milk.
-Mix everything well but don’t over mix it.
-In the separate cupcake moulds, put some coconut at the bottom of the moulds (just enough to cover the bottom, not too much).
-Pour the mix up to 3/4 full.
-Place them in the steamers.
-Steam for around 8 to 10 minutes.
I know it looks very complicated. But its not. As easy as if you make baked cupcakes. Very quick too and taste very nice. So I hope you want to try it too 🙂
