lumpang traditional cake


This simple lumpang cake can be a delicious snack. It has a chewy and sweet taste wrapped in grated coconut. We can get this lumpang cake at a coffee shop, it's also usually at thanksgiving and social gathering events that are also available at other official events.




Made from ingredients that are very easy to find in stores, namely rice flour and starch. And usually mixed with pandan leaf water so that the aroma is fragrant and delicious. And there are also some people who don't use pandan leaves to use food coloring but the taste is not the same as those who use pandan leaves. When it is served, it is sprinkled with grated coconut. The harmonious combination of sweet and savory grated coconut when chewed in the mouth feels chewy and delicious.

For the mold, you can use a small round bowl made of plastic and like my mother's mold, I use a mold made of aluminum.

Necessary materials

  • 25 grams of rice flour
  • 100 grams of tapioca flour
  • 250 ml coconut milk
  • 100 grams of sugar
  • 5 pandan leaves, cut into pieces for coloring
  • 1/2 tsp salt

To sprinkle

  • 100 g grated coconut
  • 1 pandan leaf
  • 1/2 tsp salt



Pour the coconut milk, chopped pandan leaves, and sugar in a blender. Make sure everything is well mixed, then strain the blender, remove the pulp, mix the rice flour and starch and pour the coconut milk that has been in the blender. Then heat the steamer until the water boils then add it. a mold that has been smeared with cooking oil so that it will be easy to remove later, Pour the mortar cake batter into the prepared mold. Steam in the mold for about 30 minutes. Wait until it cools down then remove from the mold. And after that mix the salt into the grated coconut. and ready to serve.

I stopped selling those because Im no the one who manages the store in the canteen and some of my products were returned that made me lose my capital
