Yields50 Servings
Prep Time5 minsCook Time1 hrTotal Time1 hr 5 mins
 5 eggs
 110 g sugar
 200 g coconut milk
 80 g rice flour
 80 g glutinous rice flour
 2 g salt
 cooking oil, for greasing the mould
1

Place eggs and sugar into the Thermomix mixing bowl. Mix 2 min | Speed 3.5. Scrape the sides.

2

Add coconut milk, rice flour, glutinous rice flour and salt. Mix 30 sec | Speed 3. Scrape the sides.

3

Heat up a Kuih Kapit mould. Once hot, lightly grease it with some oil or butter. Once the mould is hot, ladle 1 tbsp of batter onto the centre of the mould. Close the mould and cook for 2-3 minutes until the edges start to turn golden brown.

4

Quickly remove the crepe from the mould fold into half and then slightly flatten and fold again and flatten and lift it up from the maker. Work quickly while the wafer is still pliable, as it hardens as it cools. You can also use kitchen shears to trim off the extra crust on the outer edge if you want them to be neat-looking. If you would like to make egg roll, simply roll it into a cylinder shape using a thin rod or the handle of a wooden spoon. Place the folded/rolled wafers on a wire rack to cool completely. They will become crispy as they cool.

5

Repeat the process until all the batter is used. Store the Kuih Kapit in an airtight container to maintain their crispiness.

Remember, making Kuih Kapit requires some practice, especially in mastering the technique of rolling the wafers. Additionally, the cooking time may vary, so it's essential to monitor the color to achieve the desired level of crispiness.

Feel free to adjust the sweetness or experiment with flavors to suit your taste preferences. Enjoy your homemade Kuih Kapit!
