I have shared the detailed method of steamed pandan sponge cake before, and there are other flavors of steamed cake. Have banana steamed cake, purple sweet potato steamed cake and tips as well, friends who are interested can check it out. The main point of this issue is to share production concepts and use old recipes to create new desserts. This time I used pandan extract to make the cake base. The color will be greener and the taste will be more fragrant. The cake base is the same as before, except that the portion is reduced and the mold is replaced with a small glass bowl.

The ingredients added this time is salted coconut shreds and lava palm sugar coconut. Adding some salt when frying the grated coconut will make it taste more Lemak flavor, and it can also neutralize the sweetness of the palm sugar so that it will have a richer taste when paired with it. When cooking the lava palm sugar, remember to pour the corn starch batter and stir well, otherwise it will clump.
