Brown Sugar Glutinous Rice Cake (Kuih Pulut Gula Hitam)


I made this Malaysian cake or kuih to bring to a friend's house.  I won't be sharing the recipe because I didn't make a good job of it.  The glutinous rice turned out too soft and I think I picked the wrong method to do this.  Since I made this without measurement, just estimation, I also found it not sweet enough.  Since lots of people know how to make this, I won't be telling you how.  Just that I added brown sugar and sweeten coconut flakes into the coconut fragrant glutinous rice before putting it into a container to shape.


Surprisingly my hubby liked it and I thought he hardly eat any Malaysian cake.  I would definitely try this again and this time with another method of doing it.  This cake is best eaten on the same day.  It is not recommended to put it in the refrigerator as this will harden the glutinous rice.

I tried to arrange it like a snowflake, haha... does it look like a snowflake?  :-P

Sure looks sweet enough to me, but look forward to the time you make it again and share the recipe.

Hmm... I think it still looks awesome! I would totally gobble it up. The texture looks chewy and wonderful :)

It´s almost similar that we have in Indonesia too, we call it "Wajik". You can see my post here : http://kedaihamburg.blogspot.com/2009/04/wajikglutinous-rice-cake.html
