The Special, Delicious Terengganu Sweet Cakes

3 05 2011

In Terengganu we have lots of delicious traditional sweet cakes.

Most of them are made of lots of eggs, coconut milk and sugar such as akok, jala mas and sekaya.

Yummy Terengganu food. On the right is 'akok', cream puff is on the left and the top is 'kasidah'.On the far right is 'sekaya'.

Anyway these tasty food are hard to get in Kuala Lumpur.

The tasty 'jala mas'.

So we were so happy to have them at the book launch of AMoT at the RA Fine Arts Gallery.

These delicious Terengganu cakes were cooked by Aunty Asma.

Aunty Asma is a very good cook.

Aunty Asma, the chef serving the delicious food at the event.

For the event, Aunty Asma cooked akok, sekaya, kasidah, jala mas, karipap, pulut lepa, cream puff, gopal and fried mee hoon.

My big sister Kaman (L), Kafah (middle) and I (R) are enjoying the tasty food.

I think the people in Terengganu uses lots of eggs in their sweet cakes because they want to be healthy since eggs are rich protein :mrgreen:
