You will never imagine that this Beauty is made with black glutinous rice flour. I did not know that glutinous rice flour can be used for cakes. i was quite scheptical that the cake will turn out chewy and sticky like Nin Koh but it was quite the contrary, the cake was soft , moist, fragrant and had the most unusual color. It was not black but a purplelish grey which can throw you off at first sight but the taste was fantastic.
350 gm Black Glutinous Flour
5 large eggs
300 gm fine granulated sugar
150 ml vegetable oil
200 ml coconut cream
1/2 tsp ovalette
Whisk eggs, sugar and ovalette together until fluffy and white.
Add black glutinous flour, vegetable oil and coconut milk, continue to whisk until ribbon stage.
Pour into a bottom lined 9 inch greased cake pan and put to steam on high heat for 45 minutes or until done.(i used 2 loaf pans)
Remove from steamer and after 5 minutes, remove cake from pan and let it cool before serving.
