Kuih Bengka Beras

Here's another delicious Nyonya dessert to share with all, baked rice cake! I only have this once or twice a year when I'm back home visiting my parents during the holidays. Now, I can have this at anytime I want. Thanks Lena for sharing this lovely recipe. I have never dream of making my own. This is a very easy to prepare recipe and it's as luscious as those store bought ones.

Ingredients :

180gm rice flour
80gm green beans flour/corn flour
200gm sugar
1/2 tspn salt
500ml thick coconut milk
700ml water
3 pandan leaves
(or a few drops of pandan extract/not paste)

Method :
(1) combine all ingredients together and mix well.
(2) cook the mixture over medium heat untill thickened.
(as shown in the picture, then remove pandan leaves)


(3) transfer the thick mixture to a 7" tray, with oil coating.
(4) then bake at preheated oven at 200'c for about 40-45mins or untill brown.
(5) finally, leave cool completely before slicing. (takes about 2-3 hours)

Frankly, I think those charcoal like top which is nicely burnt. It smell better! haha...

You have a slice and you won't stopped having another slice.... untill you're truely satisfied! The heavy coconut flavour is so very tempting and very very fragrant. I should say this is something irresistible.... yummmm.... Enjoy & have fun !

This looks fabulous, Kristy! I love anything with coconut flavor....and yes, I'd probably eat every slice!

ICook4Fun said...

I didn't have this in a very long time. I remember during school days, I had this often. We call this kuih 'fei chu yoke' too as it resemble a piece of pork fat ha ha..I am going to make this soon. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Belinda @zomppa said...

Wow. These are so interesting. I'm curious to try!!

lena said...

Anncoo said...

Yes..Yes...looks exactly like 'fei chu yoke' but definitely tastes better than that ;DD

Claudia said...

I have never seen it before and it sweetly welcomes me, Delicious - could I stop after two?

Heavenly Housewife said...

*kisses* HH

Kumi said...

Happy New Year - I can practically smell the fragrant coconut in it. Looks so good... :-) Here's wishing you and your loved ones a great year!

Lisa said...

You're right, having this just once or twice would not satisfy me. It looks so good I'd want to eat it all the time too.

Lyndsey said...

It looks wonderful, I am really into coconut lately! I like the toasted brown top! So how many slices can I have?

Thanks for linking it to tailgating time!

My Little Space said...

Hi everyone,

Thank you so much for visiting My Little Space. It's such a great pleasure for having you boys & girls around. I will try my best to work on all the replies soon.

Penny : This is a sweet version of rice cake. So, no need sauce! :o) I'm sure you will love it.

Sutapa : You can either use pandan extract/essence. You can even run without it! It still taste as good, darling. Hope you will like it. :o)

Hope you're all having a terrific day! & Happy 2011!

Blessings, Kristy

Bo said...

Chow and Chatter said...

Jet said...

Yum...look so good. My grandma used to make it. Thanks for sharing.

Martha (MM) said...

Another new one to me but I'd love to try it! Thanks for adding this one to Tailgating Time too :-)

MacKenzie @ Fighting the Pudge said...

YUMMY! Is the consistency like a custard? Looks fantastic and easy to make!

Happy New Year, Kristy! I hope you and your family are fab! xx

Alice Law said...

I love rice cake but I prefer eating it with sauce or gravy!^-^

happy New Year to you!

Bo said...

Kristy...Thanks for letting me know.

Nammi said...

Hi kristy!! Happy new year!!, sorry havent checked on you for a while :) you know me ,slow poke. That kuih looks yumm and sounds simple to make too :)

Cheah said...

I've not had this for a very long time, think high time to try making some!

Betty said...

Ciao Kristy, buon anno anche a te e che il 2011 sia un anno con tante soddisfazioni per tutti e poi complimenti per questa torta di riso e cocco, chi sa che buona, mi hai fatto venire fame :-P
buona giornata cara, a presto.

Emily Malloy said...

Oh boy! Look at this. I think this is GORGEOUS.

tigerfish said...

I don't think I have tried this Nyonya kueh before.

Little Inbox said...

My dad used to buy it for us for our afternoon tea. Home made version without coloring is better for sure.

dinewithleny said...

Your kueh bengka beras looks awesome too. Thanks for dropping by yesterday. I prefer to get frozen berries than fresh ones too, you get more for cheaper price. If only you are in KL, I can get some for you when I go back. My husband is from seremban.

CheapAppetite said...

Hello Kristy,
Happy New Year to you too!. this baked rice cake looks great. I agree with you. I like the top a little burnt as well. I love the smell of it. Well... as long as it's not totally burnt. hehe :) Thanks for sharing!

leen said...

Hi Kristy,
May I know if this keeps well for consumption next day? If yes, should keep in the fridge? Thanks.

My Little Space said...

Rebecca : Thank you! Hopefully, you have a chance to try this out!

Jet : You're welcome! I'm glad I tried this.

Martha : You're welcome! Am glad you're liking it too.

Mac : Welcome back, sweetie! And thank you.

Alice : This is not a savory rice cake. It's sweet rice cake! :o) So, no need to add in sauce.

Nammi : Nice to hear from you! How's your trip?

Cheah : Ya, I've been craving for this for quite awhile too.

Betty :

Emily : Great to see you back!

tigerfish : Then, you should try this one! It's irresistible! :o)

Little Inbox : It's a tradition not to add in colouring! So that it looks like pork lard.

Leny : Whoa, I'm so touched! Thanks for your special offer. haha... Btw, my hubby also from Seremban!

Tana : Oh, you mean you had this before! COOL!

Leen : Anything cooked with coconut milk should keep refrigerated. Unless you made them in the evening and can still keep them in a covered container untill the next morning. Not mention about the freezing cold winter! You can just leave it on the table for one day.

Thank you all for stopping by and spending your time with me. Way to go 2011! We are still here blogging! :o)

Hope you're all having a fabulous day.

Blessings, Kristy

My Little Space said...

Angie's Recipes said...

I love rice dessert :-) The batter prepared with coconut milk must have made this dessert extremely aromatic and creamy.

Pamela said...

Oh this is just beautiful and sure delicious, too bad I will never have all the ingredients (I need to find out what pandan leaves are!), but anyway, I', enjoying your blog, and sure will come back (no way making the dessert without the pandan leaves?)

dinewithleny said...

Woah really your husband from seremban too? what a small world!!. Mayb our in laws know each other...ahhaha...i'll let you know the next time i go back, who knows you might be back too and I can get some frozen berries for you. =)
