A traditional recipe that doesn't use any leavening agent at all and butter free. Traditional kuih or bite size dessert/snack normally are baked, steamed or deep fried. These are made from rice flour, glutinous rice four, tapioca flour, mung bean or plain flour.
Another important ingredient was coconut. Most old school recipes use coconut milk since we grow our own coconut near our house those days.
Kuih Bingka Nangka or Baked Jack Fruit Cake was quick and simple to make. You can even throw everything in a blender and it is ready to be baked.
Used evaporated milk instead of coconut milk because am running short of coconut milk. Some recipes require you to dilute the milk with water, but prefer to add undiluted in order to get creamier taste. .
You must leave Kuih Bingka Nangka to cool for 1-2 hours before slicing to get that perfect finish. My family enjoyed it with a cup of ginger tea.
