Ondeh-ondeh cupcake is another popular fusion cupcake and this cake is based on the traditional kuih ondeh-ondeh. I baked the cupcakes this morning but only managed to assemble them late in the afternoon. Unfortunately, I didn't manage to catch the sunlight for the pictures... just snapped some pictures using my iphone. I need to post this entry tonight as I would like to link it to the Little Thumbs Up event which is ending very soon. I hope I can make it.
110g cake flour (original recipe uses plain flour)
3/4 tsp baking powder (I used double-acting.)
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp concentrated pandan juice or 1/2 tsp pandan essence
100 ml freshly-squeezed coconut milk or 100 ml coconut milk from the box + 1/2 tbsp water
1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
a few drops of green colouring
2 medium eggs (I used two 60g eggs.)
90g castor sugar
- Combine flour & baking powder. Sift & set aside.
- Combine salt, vanilla, pandan juice, coconut milk, oil & colouring in a container. Mix thoroughly & set aside.
- Combine eggs & sugar in a mixing bowl & beat at high speed until thick & pale, about 5 minutes.
- Add flour in three parts, alternating with the coconut milk mixture. With each addition, beat until the ingredients are incorporated, taking care not to over beat.
- Fill paper cups or muffin pan with batter until almost full.
- Place baking or muffin pan on the middle rack of the oven & bake at 180 deg C for about 20 minutes.
- Cool cakes completely on a wire rack. Once cooled, core the center of the cake. Pour the gula Melaka syrup. Pipe the whipped cream onto cake as desired. Sprinkle grated coconut followed by shredded palm sugar.
100g palm sugar (gula Melaka)
Combine sugar & water in a saucepan & cook until the syrup becomes thick. Leave to cool. (Reheat the syrup first if the cooled syrup becomes too thick to pour into the cake.)
100ml non-dairy whipping cream (whipped)
freshly-grated coconut (steamed & mixed with a dash of salt)
palm sugar (shaved)
