Traditional Indonesian dessert: KUE CUBIT

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.

Recipe: Kue Cubit

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.
