PANDAN BAKE CAKE - THE KUIH STYLE / KUIH BAKAR PANDAN



This is a favorite Malay delicacy that you can find any where in the food stall up to the 5 Star Hotel. This kuih is soft, creamy and delectable.

Bingka Pandan  or Bengkang in northern lingo, is a traditional Malay dessert which uses the most basic ingredients like flour, sugar, eggs, a bit of butter and of course, the key ingredients in many Malay desserts, the daun pandan or screwpine leaves and santan or coconut milk.

I remembered my mum used to bake this Bingka using charcoal for top and bottom grilling. You can't beat the aroma of Bingka baked in traditional method.

One important thing in making bingka is to get the right batter consistency, then the Bingka will be nice when you cut.
INGREDIENTS
5 eggs / 5 biji telur

2 cup flour / 2 cawan tepung gandum
10 screwpine leave with 1 cup of water/ 10 helai daun pandan blend dengan 1 cawan air
1 cup sugar / 1 cawan gula
3 cups coconut milk / 3 cawan santan
salts and pandan paste/ garam dan pes pandan


Method:

Preheat oven at 170C. Butter a 9x9 baking pan. Panaskan ketuhar dan leserkan minyak pada acuan 9x9

Mix all of the ingredients (except for sesame seed) in a food processor. / Campurkan semua bahan kecuali bijan dan blend supaya tidak bergentel


Bake for 30 mins. Remove tin from oven and sprinkle sesame seed. Return tin to oven in a rotated position. Bake for another 50-60 mins. Let cool for a minimum of two hours before cutting / Bakar selama 30 minit, keluarkan dan taburkan bijan kemudian bakar lagi 50-60 minit atau sehingga panas. Sejukkan sekurang-kurangnya 2 jam sebelum dipotong.

Kuih Bingka Pandan, inilah pertama kali saya membuat kuih bingka pandan, biasanya beli sahaja, itulah kalau bulan puasa memang selalu thrill nak mencuba benda-benda baru. Paling penting dalam membuat kuih Bingka ini adunannya kena betul baru dapat kuih Bingka yang cantik. Zaman teknologi ni Bingka dibakar pakai oven aje, saya masih ingat lagi dahulu arwah umi selalu memasak Bingka pakai arang, pakai api atas bawah, wow...bingkanya cantik dan aromanya pun sedap.
