Seri Muka – amazing Malaysian kuih (sweet cake) made of glutinous rice, coconut milk, sugar and pandan leaves. Seri Muka is a dainty and yummy dessert.
Today I have my contributor Siew Loon back with a popular kuih recipe: Seri Muka. Seri Muka is a Malay and Nyonya kuih made of glutinous rice and pandan leaves. They are so pretty, with natural green color and cut into small pieces. More importantly, seri muka is absolutely delightful—sweet, laden with coconut milk, with a nice sticky texture. They go extremely well with a cup of coffee in the morning, or as an afternoon snack.
Siew Loon learned this seri muka recipe from her friend Helen, who selflessly taught her to make this ever tasty sweet cake. It takes about an hour to make seri muka but the end result is rewarding. If you love kuih, you have to try this easy and amazing recipe. Happy eating!

For Bottom Layer:
For Top Layer:
Mixed all the ingredients for the bottom layer and steam on high heat for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile prepare the top layer. Mix the eggs, coconut milk, sugar, pandan juice and flour. Stir until smooth. Cook over boiling water (using double boil method) until the mixture thickens slightly but still runny enough to pour.
After 20 minutes, take out the glutinuous rice mixture, stir and flatten it with spoon or hands. Make sure it is compact. Use a sieve to pour the egg mixture on to the rice mixture.
Steam on medium heat for 30 minutes. Leave to cool before cutting into diamond-shaped or rectangle-shaped pieces.
