here is the photo: the kueh did not "huat".. and I think I am too lazy to "draw" the plus sign oil line..

I have a similar recipe from a friend's mother, the texture is much softer compared to the regular recipe (non-yeast). I've made this several times but my huat kueh never huat.

You can try to cut the kueh across using a gresed oil knife to allow the kueh to "huat"

my mom suggested the natural way was to steam the cups first..empty for about 5 mins..

water will start to collect inside the cups..that's natural.

then lower the heat, pour the batter in till it fill up to the rim of the cup

then cover, steam over high heat for 5 mins or so.

the huat effect sure to huat. Works for me all the time. island
