Our dessert I was sad to see was not sticky rice and mango (Husbands favourite) but steamed banana cakes, but these were so cute and again simple to make I am glad I learnt how as I never would have chosen these.
We made little cups from banana leaves to steam our cakes in.
You need, for two people;
3 very ripe bananas
100g rice flour
20 tapioca flour for thickening
60ml coconut cream
50 grated young coconut
1. Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and smash until a smooth mixture is formed. Pour the mixture into containers or cups, or banana leaves!
2. Steam them over boiling water for 20-30 minutes or until the cakes become springy.
You can eat the cakes hot or cold, I ate one of mine with some coffee at the end of a long day of eating.
I had to, such a Thai dessert, quite light considering and I imagine stomach and mouth soothing too great after a hot Thai dish
