Kue Lumpur

Traditional Mud Potato Cake

Has been long time ago since my last bite of this favourite cake. Smooth velvety taste which I can't really taste that it's actually mash potatoes in this mixture with young coconut meat bites.

The cake more well known in Java island and these days has lots of variations. My taste as usual is original made from eggs, wheat flour, mash potatoes and slices of young coconut baked in a special kue lumpur pan. Very simple but the taste incredibly rich.

Once I tried to bake them in oven with muffin mould but turned dry, at that time I didn't have kue lumpur pan yet. I was thinking to cover the top with foil will do the trick so the top stay smooth but still not as it use to be.so if you want to try this I suggest to bake them in a poffertjes pan if you don't have one.

Kue Lumpur pan made from aluminium composit which is lighter than cast iron eventhough still weight 2.5 kg specially bought it at Kopro traditional market in Jakarta- Indonesia when I was there for a holiday.

It made me laugh everytime I remember how on earth I am going to carry this in my suitcase.
