Bubur Ca Ca or Sweet Potato And Yam Pudding is another traditional and very popular dessert in Malaysia. You can either serve this sweet dessert warm or cold. As for me, I prefer to savor them warm.
By the way, I will be submitting my Bubur Ca Ca recipe for the Merdeka Open House 2009 organized by Babe in the City - KL. Malaysia will be celebrating 52 years of independence from the British on August 31st 2009. The theme chosen for this year’s virtual open house is My Sweet Malaysia. This is a great way to showcase some of the traditional sweet desserts from Malaysia. So, do remember to check out Babe in the City - KL blog on August 31st for some delicious sweet dessert recipes from Malaysia.
