Kue Pukis

kue pukis 0


Another Indonesian traditional snack called Kue Pukis. One piece of Kue Pukis is Rp. 1.000. You can also make it by your own. It's quite easy as long as you have that special long square baking pan ;)

This is how to make Kue Pukis:

Ingredients:
150 grams flour (high protein)
180 ml coconut milk
1/2 tbsp instant yeast
60 ml warm water
3 eggs
100 grams sugar
Margarine for coating

Directions:
Mix the instant yeast with the warm water, set it aside. Beat the eggs and sugar until it becomes volume and thick then pour flour gradually. Slowly stir it in the instant yeast and coconut milk. Leave the batter for about 2 hours before you put it on the coated pan with margarine. You can add some toppings on the Kue Pukis like chocolate sprinkles, cheese, roasted peanuts with sugar, or strawberry jam.

  2. sara: If you love coconut milk then you would love Indonesian desserts and snacks because most of them are made with coconut milk :)

  3. These look soooooo good! Before I make it myself, I'd love to know what it tastes like (so I'd know if I were making it properly). Gotta make it to Indonesia soon . .

    Regarding the Moo cards from Foodbuzz, my full name was on it - I just 'erased' it for my photos. Have to keep the mystery, you know! 8-)

  5. tangled noodle: It tasted sweet with soft texture and has a nice flavour from the coconut milk. It would be great if you can visit Indonesia :)

  11. j2kfm: If I'm not mistaken, Ban Chang Kuih is more like our indonesian sweet martabak, no?

  12. I love coconut milk and definitely have to try Kue Pukis.Can I make them in a muffins tray?

    ReplyDelete
  13. history of greek food: thanks for dropping by at my blog :)
    Yes, I think you can actually use the muffin tray but it would be better if you use the mini tray because you don't want to "overcooked" it but it got the surrounding brown because that's what make it special and different than cakes or cupcakes.
