Two-Tone Huat Kueh ~ 二种颜色发糕

 

Happy New Year.  Hope 2021 will be a better year and will bring much cheer and joy to everyone and may the Covid 19 slowly fade away and life can resume normalcy.

After successfully making the Steamed Cocoa Huat Kueh aka Fatt Koh I went on to try making another type of Huat Kueh, this time to mix with another flavour and I opt for Pandan. Again I was delighted when the top of the kueh split into sections and 'smiled' at me. This is the result that I had wanted to achieve.  The kueh is soft, moist and crumbly and you can just steam them again if you have any leftovers.

  • 250 gm plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 130 gm sugar
  • 1 'L' egg

  • 100 ml cooking oil
  • 1/8 tsp pandan paste
Method
  1. Sieve and mix all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  2. Line the tart pans with paper cup liners.
  3. Using a handmixer whisk egg with sugar till creamy, add milk and continue to whisk.
  4. Gradually add in flour mixture alternating with the oil.  Mix well.
  5. Scoop up 4 Tbsp batter and add 1/8 tsp pandan paste to mix in.
  6. Using an ice cream scoop, fill up the cups till full.  Then add the pandan batter on top of the plain batter.
  7. Steam on high heat in rapidly boiling water for 15 mins.  and do not open the lid of the steamer to check on the kuih until the 15 mins. are up.
  8. Let the kuih cool in the pan before removing to let them cool completely on a wire rack.
  9. Yield :  6 Huat Kueh
Note :  The 'kueh' must be steamed immediately.   Do not let them sit too long for they may not 'huat'.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Chocolate and Matcha Chiffon Cake ~ 巧克力抹茶戚风蛋糕

  One of my family's favourite to have for breakfast or tea is the evergreen Chiffon Cake, be it in whatever flavour.   I have posted different flavours of chiffon cakes on my blog and this time I used matcha powder, and chocolate powder mixed with matcha powder not only for flavour but to create some swirl patterns.  As always chiffon cakes are light, airy, soft and most delectable.
