Kuih bingka is a traditional kuih that made from tapioca which is also known as casava. This kueh is one of my favourite kueh .On the weekand my aunt have gave me a raw tapioca and it encourage me to try to make kuih bingka. Its been a long time since i wanted to try and i only made it today. I am happy that i do give a try. I have several taster at home ….hehe …and i get a good response. They say “delisious just a bit sweet..” will reduce the amount of sugar next time.
In this recipe i do add 300g granulated white sugar and its a bit sweet but for those who have a sweet tooth then this is for you… for someone who doesn’t like it too sweet then reduce the amount of sugar to
..200 – 250 g .
I adapted this recipe from kitchen tigress and thanks to her information, it help me a lot. I also do read other blog and some of them adding fresh grated coconut flesh straight to the batter but i prefer to just add coconut milk. Remember that this cake will rise a bit while baking and shrink to its original volume as it cool down.
