330 ml coconut milk , thick
100 ml water
50 g plain flour
2 teaspoons dry yeast
150 g rice flour (Can be substitute by corn flour)
100 g tapioca flour (Can be substitute by tapioca starch)
250 g caster sugar
180 ml coconut water (Can use canned type, remove pulp inside. Canned coconut water quite sweet so has to reduce the caster sugar by 100g)
5 egg yolks (Remaining egg whites can be used in other dishes. Don’t waste it :D)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence (Can use either pandan or durain flavour)
3/4 teaspoon salt

7) Bake for about 15-20 min. Shift side to side & up and down for even browning.
8) Flipped to the other side and bake for another 10 min. (After flipping, open the pan to shift the kueh. Quite soft actually)

10) Remove from pan and let it cool before serving.
Additional Comments About this Recipe
I’m using the basic pan so can pour the batter until the steam vent. The ingredients stated can make into 2. I think for ocher or jumbo pan can used up all the batter.
