Kuih Puteri Ayu (Steamed Pandan Sponge Cake)

Wanted to make this steamed cake for sometime but was so hesitate to have to buy the mould and moreover it is in plastic.  But just do not know why I still go ahead to get it.  Luckily the moulds was not that expensive ...

Actually it was a picture that I stumbled upon in Instagram that inspired me to make this sponge cake.  But that picture posted was in Pumpkin flavour instead of pandan flavour.

Kuih Puteri Ayu (Steamed Pandan Sponge Cake)
Adapted from Sonia of NasiLemakLover
makes about 13 - 15 medium moulds

2 eggs (Large Size)
100g caster sugar
150g all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
120ml coconut milk (blend 4-5 pieces pandan leaves together and strained)

60g - 80g fresh shredded coconut
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp corn flour

Mix the topping ingredients together and keep aside.

Lightly brush the mould with some cooking oil, fill the bottom of the mould with some shredded coconut. Stack 2 mould together and press till shredded coconut is firmly pressed.

Sift flour and baking powder together and set aside.

Using your handheld mixer, beat sugar and eggs until fluffy; about 5 minutes.  Slowly add in coconut milk and mix well.  In slow speed of your mixer, slowly add in flour and mix till well combine.

Fill the sponge cake mould with batter just slightly below the rim.

Steam your cakes for 10 - 15 minutes once your steamer is ready,

When cake turned slightly cool, remove the cake from the mould. 

Enjoy your steamed cake while it is still warm!  I love to have lots of shredded coconut topping!
