Kue mangkok, kue mangkuk is an Indonesian kue or traditional snack of steamed cupcake. kue mangkok means "bowl/cup cake". It is similar to the snack bolu kukus ("steamed tart/cake"). While both have a similar appearance, Bolu Kukus requires only four ingredients to make, Kue Mangkok needs fourteen. The result is a different taste. Bolu Kukus is soft and fluffy, on the contrary Kue Mangkok has a rough texture. Both are delicious snacks.

Ingredients, cooking method and variants

Its dough is made of the mixture of flour, rice flour and sagoo (tapioca), yeast, egg, coconut milk, sugar and salt. Traditional kue mangkok might be sweetened with palm sugar, thus creating brownish color.[1] Other traditional variant might uses tape singkong or tapai (fermented cassava),[2] or using ubi (sweet potato) or talas (taro). The dough is placed into some tin or stainless steel cupcake containers or small bowls, and then steamed until the top part of the cakes are rising, expanding and blossoming like a flower. The top is cracking into four petal-like lumps. The texture is somewhat soft and firm and slightly moist compared to common cupcake. Kue mangkok might be sprinkled with grated coconut on top of it.[1]

Bolu kukus

The term bolu kukus (steamed tart) however, usually refer to a type of kue mangkuk that mainly only uses wheat flour (without any rice flour and tapioca) with common vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry flavouring, acquired from food flavouring essence. The term bolu is derived from Dutch to describe Dutch sponge cake. Thus the texture is soft and fluffy just like tart or chiffon cake. As the name imply, bolu kukus is a steamed tart instead of commonly baked cupcakes, and usually the bolu kukus base is covered with corrugated paper container, just like common cupcakes.
