Introduction: Pukis (Coconut Milk Cakelets)
My 6 year old prefers to call these cakelets as boat cakes as they resemble boat shape to him :)
Step 1: Materials
To make these cakelets, you will need a specific pan such as shown. They are available online or at baking store, and they are on the heavy side, with a lid on top.
This pan can be used not just on fire top stove but also glass top stove and also in oven.
You will also need chocolate rice or Dutch hagelslag. They may appear the same as sprinkles/jimmies, but they are so much better than regular sprinkles which are made of sugar and egg white. Chocolate rice are made of milk, butter and chocolate. Available online, Asian store, or at a specialty store.
250 ml can coconut milk
1/2 tbsp instant yeast granules
100 g sugar
150 g flour
Step 2: How to Make the Cakelets
Simmer coconut milk then take off from heat. Let cool until lukewarm then sprinkle with yeast, stir lightly and let it bloom for 10-15 mins.
Beat sugar and egg until fluffy, then beat in flour a little at a time until combined
Stir in coconut milk mixture then let stand at room temperature until fluffy (on kitchen counter), for 15 mins
Heat cakelet pan on medium heat, brush with butter/margarine/oil
Pour batter into cavities half way up
Sprinkle with chocolate rice generously and top with lid
Cook until surface is dry to the touch
Best served warm
