Kueh Bakar

This is one of my favorite Malay Kuih that I used to buy from pasar malam (night market). The last time I ate this kuih was in Langkawi at 1996. I have to admit I never knew the name of this kuih but loved it. I once saw a photo of it in Lilian Chan's blog but there was no recipe. I got all excited when I saw photos of of this kuih at Raymond See's party which he gladly posted on mybuddies.net. I learnt that it was fellow blogger and now my sifu Gert who made brought this kuih to the party. I got more excited when she said she would post this recipe in her blog. I didn't have to wait long and finally got the recipe.

This is my attempt at this kuih and it turned out good. I guess I added too much green coloring (2 drops). I took it to church for a Singaporean lady to try and we do have a Malaysian priest there and he loved the smell of pandan, he said it was good. I don't know if my kuih was all that good or if they both had not eaten this kuih for so long that even a bad one would taste good.. hahaha... Enjoy!!

Here is Gert's recipe...
Ingredients :
  • 1 1/4 cups of sugar
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of pandan juice (6 pandan leaves + 1 cup of water - blended)
  • 2 1/4 cups of coconut milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp of melted butter
  • 1 tsp of pandan paste
  • few drops of green food coloring
  • 1 tbsp of sesame seeds (optional)

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degree F and greased a baking pan.
  2. Mix all the above ingredients except sesame seeds until well combined.
  3. Pour mixture into baking pan and sprinkle with some sesame seeds and bake until golden brown or skewer comes out clean when tested. It should take an hour.
  4. Cool it down before cutting.

Looks good. I don't think I have tasted kueh bakar nor heard of it.

Tastes like kaya?

Beachlover, do give it a try or go buy some at the pasar malam then try it when you come home.

Gert, thanks for the recipe.

Uncle Lee, wah.. looks like my 12 years is nothing compared to your 40 years.. considering I was born in the late 60s.

Judy, its similar to kaya but heavier on the pandan taste. Try the recipe and see... worse come to worse you can toss it away. Like how I've thrown alot due to bad experiments
