IMG_8567after dear esther made this cake, i was totally mesmerised.. and then i realised i’d also bookmarked the same from blue little kitchen and mui mui (the original recipe contributor)…so here’s mine
网上看见 esther 家的作品后,傻了眼。。美。。然后。。更傻了眼 ~发现原来较早前既然也在蓝色小厨和 mui mui 家(原食谱贡献者)也收藏了同样的食谱。。。它。。既然被偶埋藏到清单的深、深、深处。。。

Recipe adapted from the above friends, with modifications

Ingredients (i used a 6 inch square pan, with removable base)

227g butter

5 eggs

125g condensed milk
125g kaya

135g cake flour
100g horlicks

(E) mix the following together and set aside
3 tsp instant coffee powder
1 tsp cocoa powder
1.5 tbsp warm water


黄油 227克

鸡蛋 5颗

炼奶 125克
咖椰 125克

蛋糕粉 135克
好力克 100克

即溶咖啡粉 3小匙
可可粉 1小匙
温水 1.5大匙


IMG_8572– grease pan and line bottom with parchment paper

– beat A till pale and fluffy. add in B, one egg at a time and blend well
将 A打至发白、蓬松。加入 B。鸡蛋每加入一颗拌匀后再加入下一颗

– add in C and D, beat till well combined
拌入 C和 D,拌匀

– divide batter into two portions. add (E) into one portion, and keep the other plain

– alternate batter into pan (c. 140g per layer) and steam each layer on high heat for 8-9 mins (most importantly is for the top to firm up before adding a next layer). do not steam for too long as the surface will wrinkle up and cause uneven layers
面糊以交替方式,轮流倒入烤盘以大火蒸 8-9分钟(每层约 140克~最主要是加入下一层面糊时,之前那层不应该是湿答答滴)。注:每层不可蒸太长时间,否则顶部会起皱纹

    Is there a reason for steaming this rather than baking it? Can I bake it instead?

    • Victoria Bakes (February 16, 2015)

      Hi ~ some people prefer steaming for health purposes. i have not tried baking these, but don\’t see a reason why you cannot grill these (remember that baking lapis is always using grill mode). hope this helps and thanks for coming by

    May I ask what size of square baking tin did you use? The cake looks good. ☺

    • Victoria Bakes (February 16, 2015)

      hello max, you may have missed this (as mentioned in the ingredients portion ;))

      i used a 6 inch square pan with removable bottom base. hope this helps and have a good CNY

    Noticed some of your cookies uses potato starch. Is it the same as potato flour?

    • Victoria Bakes (May 9, 2015)

      Hi Wendy, apologies for missing this. No,.potato starch n flour are two separate things.

  • Zoe (@bake4happykids) (February 17, 2015)

    Hi Victoria,

    Interesting that baking hermit asked if we can bake this cake instead of steaming??? I wonder if there is any differences too… Nevertheless, the streamed version look really good.
