Wingko Babat recipe / Indonesian Coconut base small pancake

Resep dalam bhs Indonesia ada dibagian bawah

This snack reminds me back at once upon a time in Jawa Island... a long time ago... Ooohh..where should I start... I have many memories blues my mind with this snack... Really... even when I start writing this post, my eyes already tears...I don't exaggerate it...maybe I just miss my homeland and my late father.

Back loongg time ago when I was a kid, my late father brought me,my smaller sister and big brother to his homeland, Tuban town. It's a small town in border of East Java and middle Java. 
A small town with very big fishes from the sea--at least that was on my mind when I was a kid. 
Because once my father took me to town's harbor to saw some fisherman with their bamboo fishing rod. They pulled one giant fish--bigger than me at that time from the sea! and I was so scary that time.
Then my father took me home again and bought me Wingko Babat from wingko seller at province's roadside, that seller was a boy, older than me I thought. 
Can you believe how strong our childhood memory is? Even I remember every detail that time. Since that bite, I was instantly love that snack.

And when I was living in Jakarta, far away from my family in Surabaya and anytime I miss my mom and families I should take 12 to 15 hours train from Jakarta to Surabaya. And every time the train stopped at each town's station, there were always many Wingko Babat seller came into our train wagon together with many other sellers offered what they sold. 
And usually, I bought Wingko Babat for my family at home. This "ritual" unexpectedly now became a valuable thing to remember. 

One time I really want to take my husband and kid to travel by train as I did a long time ago before I marry him, and feel what I lived before.

Wingko Babat is one of Indonesian old traditional snack (jajan Pasar) which may already exist decades ago together with other some traditional snacks/ food. Made from grated coconut and glutinous rice flour as main ingredient. Wingko is very famous on the northern coast of the island of Java. This cake is often sold at train stations, bus stations or also in pastry/ snack shops. In Java, Wingko also often become "snack souvenirs" for the family, which makes this snack famous for a nostalgic snack.
The most famous Wingko made in Semarang. It causes a lot of people who think that wingko also came from this city. Nonetheless, wingko babat actually comes from Babat Town. It is a small area in Lamongan, East Java. 

Wingko mostly has round shape but sometimes presented in small square chunks warm or at room temperature. Has slightly soft yet somewhat chewy texture. Sweet taste and so aromatic from vanilla or sometimes pandan--Check my Wingko pandan version here.
For you who wonder how to make it at your own home, here I write my recipe.

Check category Indonesian Snack (jajan pasar/ kue) for more Indonesian Kueh or snack.

Make about 20 cakes

  • 200 gr glutinous rice flour
  • 200 gr desiccated grated coconut ( from about half fresh coconut.fresh one is the best)
  • 150 gr sugar (or to taste)
  • pinch of salt
  • 150 ml thick coconut milk
  • 25 ml warm water
  • 1 egg
  • 5 gr vanilla powder
How to make:
In a medium bowl mix all ingredients and start to knead slowly with your hand, you can use a wooden spoon, but with clean bare hand you can fell the sugar already dissolve or not.
Heat small pancake mold over medium heat, take about 1 ice cream scoop (or 2 Tbsp) and pour into the mold... cook slowly over low-medium heat until it surface golden brown on each side.

If you don't have mini pancake mold, simply grill over nonstick pan.

Another way is you can bake in a baking tray. Pour all batter into a baking tray lined with baking paper (the thick of cake should not more than 3 cm) bake in preheated oven 150 deg C until golden brown. Let it completely cool before cut into a chunk.
Check this version for baking in the oven.
