Terengganu Kuih Akok

How time flies.....this is the 3rd month of MFF and it's Terengganu Month.
You can find the round up for previous month here :
 Melaka Month ( August 2012 )
 Sarawak Month ( September 2012)

I don't know much about Terengganu food except for it's popular Keropok Lekor, which we can find it in Night market or shopping.In this month , I do hope to learn more about Terengganu food :)

Back to this Kuih Akok , recipe recommended by lena , which is from Resepi Tok Wan.
The taste not bad, like egg pudding with gula melaka flavor, but, my kids said, like egg tarts.
I didn't use non stick pan, so my kuih akok stick to my pan, even I greased the pan....ggrrrrrr.
So, I highly recommend you use non stick pan... 
Here's the recipe I translated it in English and modefied a bit:


100 ml water
100 gm gula melaka/palm sugar, chopped
3 small blades of pandan leafs (Simply tear apart)
5 eggs
200 ml thick coconut milk
30 gm flour
pinch of salt

Cook gula melaka/palm sugar with water and pandan leafs, until all the sugar dissolved.
Keep a side to cool.
Pre heat the oven at 200C.
Once the gula melaka mixture cooled, add in the remaining ingredients , mix well and sieve.
Grease a muffin tray , or if you got the mould, you can use it too. I highly recommend non stick pan.
Pour the mixture into the mould, fill to the top/brim.
Bake at preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Depends on your oven. Mind 27 minutes...lols.

*This kuih will fluff up while baking, but will immediate deflate and wrinkle once you take out from oven.

You can view the original recipe here.

Ready to bake...

 This is the 10 minutes baked. According to the recipe bake for 10 minutes and this is the 10 minutes looks like.....and I thought I failed, because it didn't fluff I wait again.....and let it bake....

 And this is after 15 happy when you can see it begin to fluff....phewww luckily I didn't throw it away....hahaha

 And this....after 20 minutes......

And this 25 minutes......I wait until 27 minutes....hehehe....Beautiful right?!!!

And this right from the immediately shrink and wrinkle....zzzzzzzzzzzz

I am submitting this to Malaysian Food Fest , Terengganu Month , hosted by Lena of Frozen Wings .

Nice try, Cindy! It may be deflated and wrinkled but I bet it tasted good yah? I have been looking for akok mould but haven't found yet. The traditional akok shape is like kuih cara and as far as I remember they were quiet firm. Perhaps the mould makes a difference.
