Kue cubit is a typical Southeast Asian dessert, native to Indonesia. These are cupcakes about 4 centimeters in diameter. Sellers of these sweets often operate near traditional schools or markets. Kue cubit carries flour, yeast powder, sugar and milk as main ingredients.
The liquid dough is poured into a steel mold with several small round containers so that it has a round shape when cooked, and poured on top with meises (chocolate sprinkles). Sellers often use a special stick with hook to remove the cake from the steel mold.
The cake is called kue “cubit” (pinched in Indonesian) because of its small size: to eat it you have to pinch it. Another variant is called kue “laba-laba” (Indonesian: spider), in reference to its web shape created by pouring the liquid dough around the steel mold. The cake is related to Dutch poffertjes.
• Step 1:
Place the eggs and sugar in a bowl, then whisk until fluffy with a hand whisk or blender.
• Step 2:
Gradually, put the flour in the blender, stirring until combined. After adding all the flour, pour in the melted butter and mix well.
• Step 3:
Add baking powder, baking soda and vanilla extract.
• Step 4:
It is best to let this dough rest for at least five minutes. That way, the cake dough will be fluffy and fuller when cooked.
• Step 5:
Preheat the butter-covered cake pan over a low heat.
• Step 6:
Pour in the mixture and cook until the cooking level suits your taste.
