Putu Ayu (Indonesian Steamed Coconut Cake)



It's a long overdue post that's been drafted for ages. I made this Indonesian steamed coconut cake (Putu Ayu) in April, and supposed to be posted on May, but then I had to go abroad for some projects.. and you know the rest of the story ;)

Putu Ayu is one of many traditional cakes in Indonesia that easily found in the traditional market (pasar). This cake is pretty (that's why it's called "ayu"), fragrant (from the pandan leaf), "gurih" (from the coconut flakes) and tasty. When I was a kid, I ate this pretty cake by eating the top first and now, my 2y11mos son did the same. Cute isn't it ;)

Want to try this cake but living abroad? Here is the recipe.
