Bánh Da Lợn - aka Pig Skin Cake

I love snacks. Therefore, when it comes to sweet I like them in small portion. My Aunt gave me the tiny adorable molds from Viet Nam last year so I decided to use them.

Bánh Da Lợn is literally translated as Pig Skin Cake. This cake is consist of tapioca flour, coconut milk, sugar, pandan flavor, mung bean and water. Check them out. Aren't they cute?

First you grease the molds with oil, and then pour the first layer in them. Steam them for 5-6 minutes.

Then you add the second layer, mung bean. Continue to steam them for another 6 minutes.

Next, you add the third layer. And let them steam for another 6 minutes.

Then you take them out from the steamer and cool in the bath of cold water.

I mixed different color to make them look interesting.

This is the finished product. Not only they are adorable to look at, but also very yummy.

1 package of tapioca flour (14 oz)
1 can of coconut milk
2 & 1/2 cup of water
300 gram of sugar
200 gram of mung bean (steamed and mashed)

Part A -- Tapioca Mixture
1. Mix 1 package of tapioca flour with 1 cup of water.
2. Add 1 can of coconut milk
3. Pour out into a bowl. Put aside.

Part B --- Mung Bean Mixture
1. Pour the rest of the water in another bowl (1 & 1/2 cup)
2. Mix with sugar
3. Use the blender and mix mung bean and the water and sugar mixture together. Put aside.

Part C--Pandan flavor mixture
1. Pour a little bit more than 1/3 mixture of Part A into Part B
2. Add different Pandan flavor to the rest of the Part A

Now you should have two different bowls. First bowl is the mixture of pandan and Second bowl is the mung bean and the 1/3 mixture of part A.

A) Once the steamer is boiled, grease the molds with oil.
B) Pour the first layer in and let it steams for 6 minutes.
C) Add the Mung bean layer. Wait for 6 minutes.
D) Add the pandan flavor layer. Wait for 6 minutes.
E) Let it sits in the bath of cold water until cool.
F) Take them out from the molds and ready to be served.
