My mom asked me to make a huat kueh for her. Had to do it tonight since I will be having reunion dinner at mom's place tomorrow night. Hope she likes it. I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Huat Huat Huat year ahead.
For those who would like to try steaming this huat kueh, here is there recipe taken off DJ Fenying's blog.
250g self-raising flour
200g brown sugar
220g coconut milk*
Mix SRF and brown sugar together in a mixing bowl.
Add in coconut milk and mix till flour and coconut milk is well combined but do not overmix or else you huat kueh might not split nicely.
Pour into a lined container and steam over high heat. If you are making a big one like mine, you need at least 40 mins of steaming. If it is in a small muffin cups, then 15 mins should be enough.
* Note: I find the amount of coconut milk is not enough. Mixture is rather dry so what I did was added a little bit of thin coconut milk (or water) to the mixture until it becomes a thick gluey mixture.
