Kueh Bingka with Bananas

I’m sure many of you have eaten Kueh Bingka but have you tried it with bananas?

Well this idea of combining bananas with Kueh Bingka came about because of our love for a not so well known Kueh Putugal.

As for this recipe, the subtle sweetness from the bananas complement so well with the flavour of baked mashed tapioca.

You can either mashed the bananas or sliced them.

This is one of a few adaptations from my recipes that I’ve created specially for you. Hope you will like it.
