Tapioca Cake ( Kuih Bingka)


This is my final entry for the Aspiring Bakers event this month. A very common kuih and i've seen quite a number of bloggers making this kuih recently.For those of you who enjoy eating  this kuih but not easily available at your place can try making this at home, it requires very little effort to make this. Just mix all the ingredients with a hand whisk and bake it till set.




I just made a very small batch ..half of the original recipe in a 8.5" x 5.5" baking tin
Original recipe ( from Nyonya Flavours)
some butter/oil  for greasing tin
1 piece of banana leaf for lining tin

650gm tapioca, peeled and grated
200ml thick coconut milk
1/4 tsp salt
6 tbsp sugar
1 egg
1 tbsp tapioca flour
1tbsp butter/vegetable oil

Method:
1. Grease a 20cmx20cm ( 8"x8" )square tray with butter or oil and line with banana leaf
2. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and blend together with a hand whisk. Pour into the tray.
3. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 30-40minutes until cake is set. Turn up the heat to grill the cake/kuih at 250C for 5-10minutes, or until the crust is browned and aromatic
4. Remove from oven and leave to cool for several hours beofre cutting into pieces.

 I am submitting this to the Aspiring Bakers# 12- Traditional Kueh ( Oct 2011 ) hosted by Small Small Baker and also sharing this in the Muhibbah Malaysian Monday Event hosted by 3 hungry tummies

  18. This really sounds interesting and it looks delicious. I've never had a tapioca cake and am curious as to how it would taste. There is only one way to find out :-). I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Blessings...Mary

  21. This is a "die for" for me! I want to make this! My mum said tapioca was what she got as staple food when she was a little girl because they cannot afford to buy rice so now she doesn't eat tapioca very much but not me! I love it!

  24. do you realize how sweet and gooey and moist this cake looks? It is hunger inducing. It reminds me of lemon squares my grandmother used to make- I realize the ingredients are different but the overall look is similar. I love it

  25. Your kuih is nicely baked. This is a good idea, to bake in shallow which might take shorter time to bake.

  26. Lena, we have similar cake back in Brazil, but never tried to make it. Yours look delicious with coconut milk.
    Hope you have a wonderful week ahead :-)
