Light Brown Sugar steamed Rice Cake ~ 蒸黄糖糕

 

I adapted this recipe from the Bak Tong Ko recipe which I posted some time ago.  I just changed the sugar to light brown sugar and steamed this in small bowls.  These small light brown sugar steamed rice cakes turned out soft and bouncy and you can just steam them again if there are any leftovers.  A faster method is to cover it with a damp paper towel and put in the microwave for 30 seconds.




Light Brown Sugar steamed Rice Cake  ~   蒸黄糖糕   
Ingredients
  • 150 gm rice flour
  • 150 ml water
  • 100 gm light or brown sugar
  • 150 ml water (to boil with the brown sugar)
  • 3 to 4 pandan/screwpine leaves
  • 1 Tbsp warm water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp dried yeast
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder to be added last
Method
  1. Put rice flour into a mixing bowl, whisk it.  Mix in water and stir till free of lumps.  Set aside.
  2. Boil water with the brown sugar and pandan leaves till sugar has dissolved.  Discard pandan leaves.
  3. Pour this hot syrup into the rice mixture, stir to mix well.  Sieve the mixture into another bowl to free of lumps.
  4. Let the mixture cool till lukewarm, about 20 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, mix the yeast with sugar and warm water, give it a stir and let it ferment till bubbles appear, approximately 5 to 10 minutes depending on the weather.
  6. Pour the yeast mixture into the warm rice mixture, stir thoroughly especially to the bottom to make sure everything is mixed well.  Add in the oil and mix well.
  7. Cover the bowl with cling wrap, place it in a warm place and let it ferment till plenty of bubbles appear.  This will take about 1 to 2 hours, depending on the weather.  Lightly grease 5 small bowls with a bit of oil.
  8. Meanwhile prepare the steamer with enough water and set it to boil.
  9. Stir the  mixture thoroughly and add the baking powder, give it a final stir.  Pour the mixture into the greased bowls.
  10. Steam the cakes in the steamer with rapidly boiling water, on high heat for about 25 to 30 minutes.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  11. Remove rice cakes from steamer and let cool for a while before unmoulding to let cool completely before cutting with a plastic knife.
  12. Yield :  5 small rice cakes.
Note :
  1. The yeast smell can be overpowering if the rice cake is eaten warm, after removing from the steamer.  The rice cake should be consumed after it is cooled completely.
  2. Over proving the mixture may result in a yellowish cake, after steaming.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!
