Seri Kaya Bakar (using the PHILIPS Air Fryer)


I love simple traditional recipes and I truly love this recipe in particular, due to the story behind it. My husband's aunt's mother (that makes her Din's grand aunt right?) created this recipe, cooking it often. Her recipe was sought after as she used to supply her Seri Kaya Bakar to the Sri Menanti Palace in Negeri Sembilan  for the royal family. And what's more, she cooked this exact recipe for my parents-in-law's wedding in 1955, for all the guests to enjoy! Lovely! 

Using the Philips Air Fryer to bake this Seri Kaya Bakar is so amazing....I get to see the Seri Kaya Bakar really puff up in comparison to the conventional oven. This is due to the hot air pressure making the texture fluffier and softer..... and it takes only half the time to cook than normal!

·      ¾   cups plain flour
·      1 cup thick coconut milk          
·      5 pandan leaves, blended with ¼ of water & strained for the juice
·      ½ tsp green colouring
·      4 large eggs, beaten       
·      ¾ cups caster sugar       
·      2 tbsp ghee, melted       
·      ½ tsp cinnamon powder          
·      1 tbsp sultanas

1.    Beat eggs, sugar, pandan juice and green colouring together in a large bowl.
2.    Pour in the coconut milk.
3.    Put in the flour gradually and beat till well combined and becomes a smooth batter.
4.    Heat a cake tin in a preheated 180ºC PHILIPS Air Fryer.
5.    When the tin heats up, put a little bit of ghee.
6.    Pour the Seri Kaya into the tin till ¾ full.
7.    Bake in the PHILIPS Air Fryer for 12 minutes.
8.    After 7 minutes or when the Seri Kaya Bakar is ¾ cooked, sprinkle with cinnamon powder and sultanas over the top.
9.    Bake for another 5 minutes.
