My daughter had an Eid celebration in her school. Days before the event she kept reminding me to bake something for her to bring to class. The refreshment for the event is supposed to be potluck. So I had to come up with something fast.
I decided to make Kueh Lompang because it is sweet and colorful and the children will love it. It is also a simple dessert to make. On the day of the event, I made the Kueh Lompang and she brought it to school. It was a hit. The kids loved it and there were no leftovers.
Kueh Lompang is a traditional Malay cake. It is usually the size of a small cup with a little dent or a small well in the middle. It is a sweet cake topped with steamed grated coconut that had been seasoned with little salt. This is to balance the sweetness of the cake and give it a creamy taste. It is a colorful cake.
The cooking method is by steaming the batter in little cups until cooked or firm. To store any leftovers, the cakes should be stored in the fridge in an airtight container. You need to microwave it if you intend to eat it after it has been chilled. Store the grated coconut separately from the cakes.
It is great for children’s parties and you can add flavor to the batter.
