Ingredients & Cooking Directions for Bánh Bò - Cow Cakes
Estimated Servings: 30 small cakes

Step 1: Prepare flour mix

2 cups rice flour
¼ cup tapioca flour
1 ¼ cups water
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

When making steamed rice cakes start off with by pouring all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix them together. Then cover the mixture and set it aside to let it rest for 1-2 hours.

Step 2: Make sweet cream

¾ cup coconut cream
1 ½ cups sugar
¼ cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Add all your ingredients in a small pot and turn your stove on medium low. Then stir all of the ingredients together until the sugar completely dissolves. Remove the mixture from the heat when it is warm but not boiling. Finally allow it to cool off completely at room temperature.

Step 3: Color the cows

Your favorite food colors

Pour the sweet cream into the flour mixture and mix it up. Then divide the mixture into however many colors you would like your cow cakes to be. Add your food colors into the different containers and stir them up. Finally allow them to rest for 1 hour before steaming.

Step 4: Steam the cakes

Water for steaming

Make sure to fill the bottom compartment of your steamer with water ¾ of the way up. Place the top compartment over the bottom compartment and add the small bowls or a muffin tin on the top compartment of your steamer. Cover your steamer with a lid and turn your stove on high. When the water comes to a boil and steams up, pour the colorful mixture in the bowls or muffin tin. Cover the steamer with a lid and steam the cakes for about 10-15 minutes or until they are spongy, fluffy and the tops erupt.

***IMPORTANT: Make sure to wipe the water off your steamer lid every 2-3 minutes of steaming to prevent it from falling into your cakes or tie a kitchen towel on the inside of your lid to absorb the water. This will prevent your cakes from being too wet and having the wrong consistency.
