- 500 g plain flour
- 300 g Indonesian coconut sugar
- 300 ml water
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 egg
- Small pack coconut milk
- Pandan leaves
In a pan, boil water, Indonesian coconut sugar and pandan leaves while mixing.
Once sugar is dissolved, run the coconut syrup mixture through a strainer and cool.
Sieve the flour. In a mixing bowl, whisk half of the flour with half of the cooled coconut syrup with a spatula.
Continue to mix the remaining half of flour and coconut syrup in portions to smooth texture.
Add coconut milk into the batter slowly, mixing with each pour until creamy.
Add baking soda and egg. At the same time, boil water in a pot for steaming.
Once ready, pour the final batter into baking cups or cupcake liners. Steam for 15 to 20 mins.
