Usage: Making Lapis Kacang Hijau (Steamed Layer Mung Bean Cake) may be tedious and arduous. However, Noni Aneka Talam produces an ingenious product, which is Lapis Kacang Hijau Instant Flour, to ease the process! To make a chewy steamed layer mung bean cake with Lapis Kacang Hijau Instant Flour, first you need to prepare two sets of ingredients for the two layers of the cake, the top and bottom layers.
The ingredients needed for the top layer, which is the green layer, are sugar, coconut milk, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of green food colouring. The bottom layer will be a yellow colour. Therefore, you may need to prepare 1 teaspoon of yellow food colouring, sugar, coconut milk and 1 teaspoon of salt.
To prepare the batter for top layer, first you may need to prepare a big bowl. Then, open the packaging of Lapis Kacang Hijau Instant Flour by cutting the packaging with a scissor. In the package, there will be two packs of green bean powder. Each is used for a layer as labelled on the green bean powder package. Cut the instant green bean powder package for the top layer with a scissor. Pour the green bean powder into the bowl and put it aside. After that, add in sugar, salt and coconut milk in a pot.
Then, cook the ingredients on the stove over a medium flame until the sugar and salt dissolve. After that, turn the stove off. Add the green food colouring to the pot and mix it well. Pour the wet ingredients into the big bowl with the instant green bean powder. Whisk all the ingredients thoroughly with a whisker until the mixture becomes a smooth batter without lumps. Separate the green batter into 5 parts.
To make the batter for the yellow layer of Lapis Kacang Hijau, the methods are similar to those for making the green layer. However, after you turn off the stove, you may need to add yellow food colouring to the pot. Divide the yellow batter into 4 parts.
After the batter is well prepared, you may now steam the batter. First and foremost, prepare a steamer that can fit a 9x9 square pan. Then, add sufficient water to the bottom of the steamer. Boil the water on the stove before steaming. Meanwhile, brush the 9x9 square pan with cooking oil with a pastry brush. After the water boils, place the square pan in the steamer, close the lid and warm up the pan for 3 to 5 minutes.
The green layer may be at the bottom of the mung bean cake. As a result, you may need to start with green batter. After pouring in the batter, you may use a spoon to spread the batter evenly across the pan. Steam green batter for 5 to 8 minutes. After the first layer is cooked, you may pour in the yellow batter. Steam it for 10 minutes to make sure it is well-cooked.
The cooking time for each layer may increase as the layer cake becomes thicker. Pour the batter interchangeably until you use up all the batter. The last batter to pour in should be green batter. After all the layers are cooked, turn off the heat. Remove the pan from the steamer. Let it cool at room temperature for at least 5 to 6 hours. Cut the layer cake into pieces with a knife and it is ready to be served!
