IMG_8004clearing out expiring ingredients seems to be a daily chore for me these days

Ingredients (makes 4 huat kuey)

120g cake flour
5g baking powder
1 egg  yolk
2 tsp coconut oil
3 tbsp soy milk (milk is fine)
28g sugar
3 tbsp strawberry jam
1 tbsp chopped dried cranberries (optional)

IMG_8007食材 (可做4个发糕)

蛋糕粉 120克
泡打粉 5克
蛋黄 1颗
椰子油 2小匙
豆奶 3大匙 (牛奶 ok)
糖 28克
草莓酱 3大匙
蔓越莓干 1大匙,切碎

– beat egg yolk with sugar briefly and add oil, milk and strawberry jam. incorporate well

– add in sifted ingredients and mix well, and fold in dried cranberry. you will get a very thick and sticky batter

IMG_8003spoon 2 ladles of batter into the cup. i used a 3cm ice cream scoop

– cover the lid of a pot with cloth, and bring water to boil. steam the cakes over high heat for 12 mins

– if you are not eating the steamed cakes immediately, store them in ziplock bag when they are still slightly warm to maintain moisture
