Kuih Bakar is one of the most famous traditional kuih (can either be a dessert or tea-time snack)
in Malaysia....and bakar means 'baked'.
My mother used to make this kuih when I was a little kid.
Being a Kelantanese (Kelantan is one of the 14 states in Malaysia) who never
made one before,
I am now proud that I could make kuih bakar at the age of 26 in the UK.
This is my version of Kuih Bakar Perantauan
1 cup - all purpose flour
1 cup - sugar
1 cup - pandan water (warm water, mixed with 1 tablespoon of green food colouring and 1 tablespoon of pandan essence/flavouring which you can buy it at any oriental or asian stores)
1 cup - coconut milk
1 cup - fresh milk
2 tablespoons - sesame seeds (to sprinkle all over the batter before you bake it)
1) Mix all the ingredients together with the help of a blender until it turns into a thick batter.
2) Pour the batter into an aluminium cake case (medium size).
3) Sprinkle the sesame seeds all over the batter.
4) Bake it at 180'C for approximately 1 hour until the surface is golden brown
5) Let it cool before you can cut it into small bites.
Actually, I referred to a marvelous recipe from Azie Kitchen.
However, due to lack of ingredients,
the taste was not as authentic as it should be because I used artificial flavouring and colour.
You may refer to Azie Kitchen: Kuih Bakar Pandan
for the real recipe.
If you follow the instructions thoroughly, you will get a good result.
For your information, I always refer to this blog whenever I cook anything.
Azie is a great cook!
