Putu Ayu

Since there is an encouragement to be "Green" nowadays, I feel I should contribute something green. So Green is the color of today's dessert. These cute shape of cakes are called Putu Ayu. These cakes are popular dessert in Indonesia. Most of the time, you can find many Putu Ayu's vendors on the road side in many cities in Java island. So since I could not fly to Indonesia every time I crave for these Putu Ayu, I decided to make these cute cakes.

Here is the recipe for Putu Ayu,

200 gram of dried coconut flakes
1/2 tsp of salt
150 gram of granulated sugar
200 gram of all-purpose flour
100 ml coconut milk
3 drops of green food coloring
Putu ayu mold (to get this mold, you have to fly all the way to Indonesia)

1. Beat eggs and sugar together until they are white and puffy.
2. Add in flour a little bit of the time and keep stirring.
3. Pour coconut milk, salt and green food coloring into the batter. Mix well.
4. Sprinkle a little bit of dried coconut flakes at the bottom of the Putu ayu's mold that has been greased.
5. Pour the batter over the coconut flakes and steam for 15 minutes.
