Kuih Bakar

This is the 2nd submission for the Merdeka Open House 2009 held by Babe in the City -KL.

If there's a size that I love, it's got to be anything mini. Mini cheesecakes, mini cupcakes, mini tarts... You get the gist. I'd like to believe the guilt and sin comes in mini size as well. :P So I've decided to whip up my own mini 'Kuih Bakar' otherwise known as 'Kuih Kemboja'

It wasn't very easy but I just made one mini kuih to feed my sweet tooth craving. This tastes just like eating a cripsy kuih with kaya filling minus the egg.

I didn't follow a recipe and just went with my gut feeling for this one. Easy peasy. Here goes:

Ingredients:(Makes 1)
  • 50mL coconut milk
  • 15mL of water
  • 1/8 cup flour
  • 1/4 tbsp butter
  • 1/8 tsp sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • a drop of pandan paste
  • 15mL of water
  • Sesame seeds, to sprinkle
  1. Preheat oven to 175°C. Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl until well combined.
  2. Pour the batter into a cupcake mould until almost full.
  3. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.
  4. Bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean when poked in the middle.

What it looks like in the centre. It is slightly under baked because I didn't want to poke it for photography purposes and I was too hungry to wait any longer. :P

Wow .. you´re one hardworking girl! Lovely entries and thanks for sharing us the recipes. I love Kuih Bakar a lot but never attempted it though coz don´t have pandan paste with me but who knows, one day will just attempt them with pandan essense and imagine the kuih green in colour hehe. Happy Merdeka btw :-)

More like I have too much time in my hands! Haha. If you're looking for the green colour maybe you could try using pandan juice? Hope that works.

Happy Merdeka to you too! :D
