Pulut Hitam Butter Cake

Pulut Hitam is a well-known dessert.  The fragrance from the coconut milk blended so well with the black glutinous rice that it brings out a very special taste.  This is what it makes this dessert so unique and popular.

My baking buddy, Brenda has turned this unique taste into a cake, which it would never come across my mind but she did it.  For the 1st time I tasted this cake, it was so good that I couldn’t get the taste out of my mind.  

This is the cake that I frequently baked for family and friends.  By topping the cake with some fresh coconut flakes, it gives you another difference texture and feel of the cake.
