Prep. Time:  20 minutes
Cook Time:  25 minutes
Total Time:   45 minutes
Yield:             4-6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh milk
  • 1 piece salted duck egg, sliced
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese
  • 3 pieces raw eggs
  • Pre-cut banana leaf

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).  Prepare a lightly greased 8 x 3 in. round baking pan. Alternatively, lined with banana leaf, if using (cut according to the size of the pan); set aside. The banana leaf adds fragrance to the cake when cooked. To make individual cakes, line a 4 in. wide and 2-1/4 in. deep mini pan with 5 in. banana leaf (if using).
  2. In a bowl, place rice flour, brown sugar, baking powder, eggs, melted butter and coconut milk; mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour batter mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour or until browned (a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean).
  4. Place the cake onto a serving platter and put butter slices on top. Sprinkle with grated coconut.
  5. Serves 4 to 6.
