Kuih Bangkit II, 2008



I baked my 2nd batch of kuih bangkit this morning. Ahhhh, practice makes perfect (I also didn't use frozen coconut cream). I achieved the light, crispy and melt in the mouth texture that I like. I'm going to make my 3rd batch next week using the Pandan extract like I did earlier and let my brother brings it back to M'sia for my mom.


Playing with the different cookie cutters.


Are those pineapple and pine tree designs? What do you think?

Little C,

Them KB looks perfect. I was thinking those were pineapple design and the other looks like corn on the cob design..
I made some KB, too a couple days ago, but I think they were a little too dry, lots of cracks after they cooled. The dough shouldn't be too crumbly, right? I'll keep trying..like you said 'practice makes perfect'.

Hi Louisa,
Oh yeah, it does looks like a corn when you mentioned it. Some of my KB also got cracks on top. Perhaps have to roll it nicely before we cut?

Thanks Cocoa. It's supposed to be this white color right? Perhaps I didn't burn mine?

D, stop baking liao. But I still got two bakes coming up which I baked few days ago. :P This cookies dough a bit tricky, really needs some skill.

Hi Susanna,
Happy CNY to you too! Yes, it's a plastic cookie cutters that came in a set of 8 or 10. You should be able to get it in S'pore. :)

Hi Retno,
You want to be my first customer is it? LOL! ;P

Thanks BBOven,
Go eat, go eat! :D

Thanks rokh. Gong Xi Fa Cai to you too!

Gong Xi Fa Cai Rasa M'sia. I do have the traditional mold but too time consuming to make it this way. I'm all for quick and easy method and recipe. :)

Thanks Andaliman!
