8 Traditional sweets of Cambodia

Now, I would like to introduce about Cambodian eight traditional sweets, including dessert and cake.

I cannot describe much because I am not skilled in making - say honestly, I love eating, not cooking. 

Most of name of the sweets, I use original Khmer name.


1. Loat

It is made by rice. 

To get light green color, it is mixed with panda leaf.

It is bland, so it is served with sugar sauce. It is best if the sauce is made by palm.

2. Prakrong

It is made by a kind of plant in Cambodia. The plant is called Prakrong, that's why the dessert is named after it.

It is soft and a type of dessert to release heat inside body. This one is popular among old people.

Eaters can eat it bland or put sugar, or sugar sauce.

3. Corn Ta Pe

Ta pe is name of a dessert of Cambodia that made by fermented black sweet rice. It is a kind of alcohol dessert; if you eat too much, you will be drunk.

Ta pe can made by corn also. The taste is quite little bit different, but you cannot escape from being a drunken if you eat it much.

Most of people feel burn inside that cause them fever or headache.

4. Kromao Tort

It is made by sticky rice, wrap around a piece of banana, and fry in hot oil.

Most of cake in Cambodia uses Namwa banana, but this one uses a kind of banana called 'chicken egg banana'.

5. Num Jack Ko

Num means cake. Jack means banana. Ko mean stir. 

So, it is meaning 'stirring banana cake'.

It is made by Namwa banana, milk of coconut, and sugar.

6. Bak Ben

I don't know how to explain in English. It is original name in Khmer language of this cake.

This sweet is produced by one kind of sweet potato of Cambodia.

7. Num Ko

It is like stirring banana cake, but it has no banana.

8. Pumpkin Cake

It is sibling of stirring banana cake. Just use pumpkin instead of banana.

There are a lot of Cambodian traditional cakes; however, I cannot describe all in this one page. Let's me find out and indicate to you later.

Thanks for reading.
