Putu Ayu (Indonesiam Steamed Pandan Cake with Coconut)

{{totalReview}}
Putu Ayu is a traditional Indonesian snack with a soft and fluffy texture similar to Kuih Bahulu. Also sometimes known as Putri Ayu, each individual treat is topped with a rich and slightly salted layer of grated coconut which perfectly balances out the sweetness of the steamed pandan cake. A great snack to munch on for afternoon tea!

  3. Steam The Batter

    • With some oil, grease the sides of the Kue Putu/Cake mould.

    • Add about 1-2 tsp of steamed grated coconut to each cake hole and press it down by hand. Make sure it’s pressed down properly so that it holds its shape.

    • Fill the rest of the hole with the batter. 

    • Repeat for all.

    • Once done, steam the Kue Putu for about 15 minutes or until cooked.
