Kuih Kapit (Love Letters)


Kuih Kapit or Love Letters are popular during the Chinese New Year. They were made using a special mold and cook on charcoal. The best Kuih Kapit are supposed to be thin and crispy. I'm using the Scandinavian KrumKake mold. The mold is usually used to bake thin round cakes and shape into cone and fill them with cream or other fillings. They can be eaten plain too. The mold in general is similar to Kuih kapit mold because they use the same ingredients except for the fat content in Kuih Kapit is coconut milk. If you are familiar with Kuih Kapit, I would say the thickness of the cookie is double with the KrumKake mold. Okay, here is the recipe.

Kuih Kapit

Ingredients

3 Large Eggs
120 g Sugar
250 ml Coconut Milk
150 g Rice Flour, sifted
60 g All-Purpose Flour, sifted
30 g Corn Flour, sifted
120 ml Water

Method

Combine the eggs and sugar and mix well. Then add the coconut milk and mix further.

Then stir in the flours and strain the batter. Brush the mold with oil.

Put 1 1/2 Tbsp of batter onto the mold and cover until they are ready or brown in color.

Cool on the rack and store them in an airtight container.
