I have this traditional wooden mould
I like Owl shape the most! what about you? and I like their shape, very tiny !
In my old recipe, I forgot to mention that to use fresh concentrated coconut milk. Every year, I have to get my husband to squeeze coconut milk from fresh grated coconut by not adding any water.
My husband squeezed until "mein chi chi" (over exhausted), hahaha !!
By using concentrated coconut milk, this Kuih Bangkit is full of coconut aromatic, crunchy and melt in your mouth once it hit your salivate!
I found out that the dough has to be on dry side, then only easy to remove from wooden mould (So this biscuit will have some crack after baked) I have record a video, you may check out.
Please adjust the amount of coconut milk used in this recipe, it is depend the dryness of your flour and thickness of the fresh coconut milk you used (if you use store bought or can coconut milk, they have difference texture)..

- Stir fry tapioca flour and sago flour with pandan leaves in a clean wok for 45mins over low heat until flour very light and slightly turned yellow.
- When you see pandan leaves turned dry, remove from the flour, otherwise it will break into small pieces, it is hard to remove later (otherwise sieve the flours once cooked).
- Cool flour for 3 days (if you intend to keep longer, then store in air-tight container and keep inside the fridge)To make Kuih Bangkit420g cooked flour2 egg yolks (35g)170g icing sugar, sifted220g fresh concentrated coconut milk-from two grated old coconuts (simply squeeze out from grated coconut by not adding water)
, adjust accordinglyMethod
- Whisk egg yolk until creamy, add in icing sugar and half coconut milk, whisk till combine.
- Add in cooked flour, slowly add in the balance coconut milk (little by little) into mixture, mixing by hand till mixture clings together to form a dough (the dough is slightly dry).
- Dust a wooden Kuih Bangkit mould with extra cooked flour, press dough hard into the mould. Trim excess dough. Tap gently on hard surface to remove the kuih. Repeat. Set aside extra coconut milk to add in dough when dough turned too dry.
