cannot take all these artificial stuff. Coz I am allergic to it. sad further more, now, doc adviced me to stay away from all artificial stuff to make cake soft or rise better.


so how?

You can omit the ovalette. It's just a softener.

Just remember to brush a little oil before you put the coconut, else it's hard to unmould. see stars

Hi Nora, Thanks for the recipe. I tried out this once with another recipe without milk powder. I didn't use ovalette too. Would love to try yours. Smile

Do give this recipe a try as it doesn't use coconut milk at all. island

I got nearly 100 pieces. You can try to use pandan juice by using the 2 cups of water. I'm just afraid that if you add in more water, the mixture will be too watery. Hence it won't be firm but it will be too soft.

HI Nora

thks for your reply

i will definitely have to reduce the qty as my wok won't be able to accommodate so many moulds. moreover, i don't have that many moulds to begin with..only have 2 dozens...

juz to confirm my understanding: i can add some pandan juice to the water but water must not be more than 2 cups?

thks once again

regards

I also have 2 dozens moulds. What I did was I steamed in batches, once the 1st batch is steamed, the other batch is ready for steaming.

juz to confirm my understanding: i can add some pandan juice to the water but water must not be more than 2 cups? Yes, you can blend the pandan leaves with water but you must ensure that it's just 2 cups of pandan juice.

thks once again

HI Nora

so, it is okay to leave the batter aside while waiting for the first batch to be steamed. i recalled some cakes cannot, must bake/steam all at one go....thks much for all your clarifications,will certainly give this a try as it is w/o coconut milk, hubby doesn't like me to make things with coconut milk, he thinks things with coconut milk spoil easily :(

Does anyone have a picture of how these moulds look like? Alternatively, can I use those chinese tea porcelain/glass cups?

Yes, you can use the porcelain cups but it won't looked like the ones I've shown.

I can't really recalled but it was quite a lot. Yes, I also recycle my moulds & will oil them first before I pour the batter.
