Kuih Bakar Kemboja

Lately, I've been craving for this local kuih bakar kemboja. Kuih bakar is something quite similar to kuih bingka as well, the only difference is the usage of flour. Kuih bakar is normally using all purpose flour and kuih bingka is usually using rice flour. Kuih bakar is the tradisional kuih Melayu (Malay kuih) which is made with thick coconut milk, eggs, sugar, flour & pandanus juice. And it should be sweet & fragrant after baked. And 'kemboja' is actually the name of the flower shape that the mould it is used. However, I didn't buy any special mould for this cake but by using my old bundt cake tray which turns out as lovely. And here's what I did.

Ingredients :
1 cup  all purpose flour
1 cup  sugar
1 cup  thick coconut milk
1/2 cup  concentrated pandanus juice
3 eggs
3 TB butter, melted
a few drops of pandan coconut extract
some sesame seeds for topping

Method :
(1)  combine flour & sugar into a big bowl, mix well.
(2) whisk together coconut milk, pandanus juice & eggs till well mixed. Then place everything together and beat till well combined.
(3) pour batter into a 8" greased bundt cake tray and sprinkle on the sesame seeds.
(4) now, bake at preheated oven 175-180'C for about 50 minutes or till brown (make sure the tester came out clean). Best to slice it after cooled completely.

Ta....da..... Gosh, how I not to love the kuih especially the crust. Looks simply gorgeous ! >o<

The crust is alluring..... give me no patience to wait any longer. haha.... I cut it anyway. Yet, still best to cut it after cooled for at least 30 minutes.

Yummmm...... I told you so, the crust looks amazing. Here I come..... I must take the first bite.... mmm...mmm...mmm.... Speechless ..... You should give it a go. Bet you have no regret. Enjoy guys !

  4. Kristy,
    Did u add the melted butter into the batter or is it for greasing the bundt mold?


  5. Hi Susanna,
    So sorry for not mentioning it clearly regarding the butter. I was lazy then just add it into the batter with a quick stir. You need extra butter for greasing the pan. >o< Have fun dear & thanks for stopping by !
    Blessings, Kristy
