This cake is a typical one made in Burma (Myanmar) and is very popular in that country.

This is an unusual recipe, and quite different to how I would normally make a cake. It requires no electric mixer of any sort but is first cooked on the stove top.

An easy recipe if you want your young children to cook.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes plus 30 minutes standing
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 8 - 10 servings

400 ml coconut cream
2½ cups semolina
1½ cups sugar
1 tsp salt
3 egg whites
½ cup butter
1 tbsp poppy seeds (optional)
Cream (optional)

In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients except the poppy seeds and cream.


Add some water gradually, a bit at a time, and mix until the mixture becomes a soft dough.

Let is stand for about 30 minutes, and you may have to add a bit more water to make it soft enough to stir in a pan.

Preheat the oven to 150°/130° fan forced.

In a non stick wok, turn the heat to high, and add the soft liquid dough.


Keep stirring in one direction until the dough becomes thick and is cooked (about 5 - 10 minutes).

It will look like this when done

Line a baking tin with baking paper and spread the dough into this.

Bake until the top of the cake turns a dark brown.

Remove from oven and let it cool.

If using, sprinkle with poppy seeds, and serve either with or without cream and a hot cup of coffee!
