Thai Sandwich Cake ( Ka-Noom-Pan Sungkayha )


A recipe taken from the archives, I can't believe it's been 8 years since I started 'Appon's Thai Food'!

This is literally a sandwich cake! In Thailand we often eat bread as a dessert with sweet sauces spread on it. For this recipe I've taken one of these sauces and made it into a layer cake. You can also make sandwiches of this and eat it as a picnic food or as a children's treats.

Ingredients for 2 Cakes
250 mls Coconut Milk
150 gms Sugar
200 ml Evaporated Milk
3 Eggs
3 Tablespoons Wheat Flour
1 Teaspoon Salt
2-3 Drops Green Food Color
8-10 Slices of Bread
Desiccated Coconut for Garnish

1. Whip the eggs to mix them, add all the other ingredients and whip together for 1 minute.
2. This needs to be cooked in a bain marie (a small pan sitting in a larger pan of boiling water so that it cooks gently). Cook slowly for 15 minutes, stirring continuously.
3. Let it cool a little, for this cake, you can eat this topping warm or cold!
4. Cut the crusts off the bread. Layer slices of bread, and sauce alternately, with a top layer of the sauce.
5. Dust with dried coconut.
