我也想做有“杯登”的蒸蛋糕，尤其是 apam dot-dot，看到很多人做出了 angry bird 的图案，很漂亮ReplyDelete
Same to you.
the polka dots on your cakes match very well with your cupcake liners too:)ReplyDelete
Yes, Lena. I like it a lot. :)ReplyDelete
What kind of texture yield from your recipe? Hmm... I tried another recipe, it yield me chewy huat kueh, headache..... Yours is nice!ReplyDelete
If your steamed cake is chewy and kuih-like probably the batter didn''t rise as it suppose to.
This steamed cake is not very fluffy type (if too fluffy the drawing on top will not be in shape) but it's soft and the texture if cake like.
Btw, please don't forget to leave your name when you comment next time. Thanks.
Hi... Like to know what is the difference with steaming cake and baking? Can we do steaming to replace baking instead?ReplyDelete
steamed cake won't have nicely brown crust like the baked one. Whether can replace baking method with steaming, I think it depends on recipe. Sorry I don't have a straight answer.
