Kuih Puteri Ayu (steamed pandan sponge cake) 蒸班兰海绵小蛋糕 (new)

I have quite long did not make this puteri ayu. This time i modified a bit of the old recipe as i omitted the ovalette and also changed to self raising flour.

This time no green food colouring is added, 100% pure natural green from pandan leaves!

Kuih Puteri Ayu (steamed pandan sponge cake) 蒸班兰蛋糕
*makes 10 small cakes

1 egg ( large or A size)
50g caster sugar
75g self raising flour
60ml pandan coconut milk (blend 3pcs pandan leaves with coconut milk and strained)

30g fresh shredded coconut (from young coconut)
A pinch of fine salt
1/2tsp corn flour


1. Mix the topping ingredients together and keep aside.
2. Brush the steaming moulds with some cooking oil, fill bottom of the mould with shredded coconut.
3. Stack 2 moulds together and press till shredded coconut is firmed.
4. Beat sugar and egg till thick and fluffy (about 4-5mins at medium speed with a handheld electric mixer).
5. Using the same handheld electric mixer, add in coconut milk, mix at low speed for 1sec.
6. Add in flour in two batches, mix over low speed till well combine.
7. Fill the sponge cake moulds with batter till full.
8. Prepare steamer, when water boil put in the mini sponge cake, steam for 15mins over high heat.
9. When cake turned slightly cool, remove the cake from the moulds.

Hi Sonia

Ive tried your previous recipe with the ovalette... what's the difference between this new recipe and the old one ? in texture and taste ?

Really want to make again after seeing your post = )

Look forward to your comments = )

Christine, there is not much difference in texture, but feel safe without adding ovalette and change to use self raising flour when one has this flour only on hand.

What type of steamer is good to make this? The cane steamer that is used for dim sum or any other metal steamer is fine too?

My Little Space said...

Hey Sonia, these are my favourite kuih. Love the pandan flavour especially and the process is easy as well.
Have a lovely evening.
Blessings, Kristy

Koay, any type of steamer will do, i will use wok and metal steaming tray only.

Hi, I have fresh pandan concentrate in hand, so how much concentrate ratio is to coconut milk since I am going to add in separately?

Unknown said...

I just tried. Apparently the cake rised like ping pong ball. What would have been possible gone wrong? Thanks alot.

Gracie said...

I find that the coconut part turns to brown color after I remove it from the mold. Is that due to steaming over too high heat?

Please advice.

Thank you.
