Puteri Ayu dessert recipe fit for a Princess and the Queen

Updated: Mar 18

✦ We celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II became the first Australian Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service.

Puteri Ayu which means Sweet Princess is a traditional Malay and Indonesian steamed dessert with a sponge-like texture and flavoured with Pandan and coconut cream with a white coconut topping. Light, fluffy and oh-so-fragrant, this is one royal treat you want to serve up for a grand celebration!

And here you have a recipe for this beautiful cupcake, courtesy of My Blue Tea. Have a go and celebrate!
