Steamed Coconut Blossom

I love blossoms!

Everytime there is a family function , I would order this from my sister-in-law ( cause she made it so light and fluffy ) and she would never want to take my money for it. I would not want to take advantage of it and I also do not want to steal their family recipe and so I signed up for a steam cakes or in malay "Kelas Apam".

In the class, I learned how to beat these steam cakes at the right consistency and steam it at the right temparature.

My successful "Apam" results
And so , now that , I know the techniques of steaming, i browsed around on coconut blossoms recipes with my own alterations here and there. This was the addictive light and fluffy results where I can eat these anytime I want, cause it's so easy to make.

Hi... I bought that mould from my tutor where I took my steamed desserts tutorials. I could not find it anywhere else here in S'pore. Most probably she got it in Malaysia.

Hi nura, can use cake flour instead..? Fm: CT

Nura Noor said...

Hi Shikin, Ovalette can be found at any baking store. Highly accessible , you can buy it at NTUC. Ovalette is also know as sponge gel.


Nura Noor said...

Hi CT,
Yes you may use cake flour. It's just hong kong flour makes it more fluffy and light.
I have never tried with cake flour though. Let me know how yours turn out. :)
