I have been wanting to make this kueh for a while but it seems difficult recently to find tapioca. But today I saw it selling at the market so I quickly grabbed some in case I don't see them again. I replaced 2/3 of the sugar with gula melaka and the end result is a very fragrant baked tapioca kueh.
Used white sugar
Used some white and some gula melaka
1 kg grated tapioca
100 gm castor sugar
200 gm gula melaka (palm sugar)
40 gm melted butter
1 tsp vanilla essence or powder
1/4 tsp of salt
2 eggs slightly beaten
300 ml of thick coconut milk
100 ml of thin coconut milk
1. Line a 9x9 inch baking tray with aluminium foil and lightly greased all sides and botton of tray.
2. Dissolve gula melaka and castor sugar with 100 ml of thin coconut milk. Sift and set aside.
3. Mix all other ingredients into a mixing bowl. Pour the sifted sugar mixture in and mix well. Pour it into the prepared tin.
4. Bake it in a pre-heated oven at 190C for about 1 hr to 1 hr 15 mins until the top is brown. Use top and bottom fire.
