I decided to give my oven a break. I think it deserves a good rest from all the baking. But my hands are still itching to bake something. So what to do? The magic word: Steaming.
The recipe for these little steamed cake are from LeeLee, who posted it in KC. It uses two forms of coconut, coconut milk and fresh grated coconut. Coconut has always been advocated as a bad bad food, because of its high saturated fat(think clogged arteries) content. But as I heard recently, it seems like they(the experts) are saying that coconut is not so bad after all. Sometimes all these information are a tad confusing, no?
Anyway, back to my cakes. These cakes are relatively easy to prepare, not to mention very tasty. The grated coconut is slightly saltish, which contrasted very effectively with the sweet cake base. Here's a look at the 'dainty' cakes.
I'll be leaving tonight to my parents-in-law's place in Malaysia for the weekend and will be back on Sunday. Have a good weekend and in the meantime, hope my archives will be sufficient to keep you busy :)
