Latik Topping

  • 3 cups Coconut Milk bring to boil until oil comes out and curdled coconut milk turns golden brown

Alternative Latik Topping


  • Make the latik first if using.
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl except for the food color and flavors. Divide mixture into 3 or 4 separate bowls. Add a food color/flavor into each portion.
  • Grease a 7 inch or 8" inch pan with coconut oil.
  • Pour the pandan flavor into the pan; cover loosely with foil and steam until set. Brush top with a little coconut oil and pour red mixture, put the pan back in the steamer and steam until mixture sets. Repeat until all batter are used up.
  • Turn off heat and leave pan in the steamer to cool a bit then take out pan to completely cool sapin-sapin.
  • Meanwhile do the topping. Toast desiccated coconut in an ungreased pan over medium high heat. Add sugar if desired. Sprinkle on top of the sapin-sapin before serving. Enjoy! :)
