I have never eaten this puteri ayu steam cakes before this. I came across some bloggers sharing how to do this. I find them so dainty and pretty. When I managed to get the same moulds I really gotta make these. I adapted the recipes from here and I halved the recipe and yield 12 pieces. As I did not have enough of this cute moulds, I steamed the rest of the batter in mini cupcakes mould.
2 large eggs ( 70g each)
150g cake flour
1 tsp condense milk
120g coconut milk
1/2 tsp pandan essence
1/2 tsp baking powder
100g Grated coconut steamed with 1/4tsp salt
1 tsp corn flour
Mix the topping ingredients together and set aside.
Brush the mould with some oil and fill in with the grated coconut. Use another mould to stack over it and pressed firmly.
Sift the cake flour and baking powder.
Beat the eggs, sugar and condense milk until thick and fluffy. Do this until you reach a thick ribbon stage.
Add in the coconut milk and the pandan essence and mix well.
Prepare the steamer.
Fill in the prepare moulds with coconut. I can only fill in 1.5 tablesooons of batter.
When the water is boiling, put in the cakes to steam for about 12mins or until cooked.
Remove the cakes from the moulds when they are slightly cooled. To remove, just press the sides lightly, invert and the cake will drop out.
Serve the cakes warm. Any left over can be kept chilled but do warm it up before you eat again.
These mini steam coconut cakes are pretty tasty, mildly sweet with the savory coconut toppings. I find the cake kind of dense probably because this recipe I used omitted ovalette.
