Akok Kedut Kelantan

Kelantanese desserts are mostly sweet. They are highly influence by Thai dessert. This is one of the Kelantanese dessert.  I was  attracted by its name Akok Kedut (mean wrinkle or crinkle dessert) and the review in Wendy's blog. She mention this dessert has a egg tart filling  texture which i love.  Appearance of this dessert is not pretty :p it is wrinkle and flat. W hen it is baked in the oven this dessert fluffs up and when its cooked it deflated. This is how it becomes wrinkle and flat. Despite the look and the sweetness (a little too sweet to my liking) this dessert it is very nice to eat. I mean very very nice :D  非常特别的 Kelantan 甜糕点. 名字也特别,叫皱纹糕..哈哈..是我直接做翻译的. 如果你知道这糕点的华文名请告诉我吧! 做法简单, 把材料都搅拌均匀就可以了. 把模预热抹上油再倒入拌好的面糊就可以送进烤  箱,  烤了. 简单吧!! I like the mixed aroma of coconut, palm sugar and pandan. It smells so fragrance when chewing  into this dessert. 充满椰香味的Kelantan甜糕点. 咬一口, 软软,香香, 吃了还, 口齿留香噢!! Let me share how simple it is to make this Akok Kedut..:D Add chop
