IMG_8638Ingredients (makes 4 small huat kuey)

120g cake flour
5g baking powder
135g milk
90g nutella

IMG_8639食材(可做 4个小发糕)

蛋糕粉 120克
泡打粉 5克
牛奶 135克
巧克力榛果酱 90克


IMG_8641– sift cake flour with baking powder

– add milk to flour mixture and stir till there are no more lumps. batter is very thick and sticky

– add in nutella and mix well

– spoon batter into cupcake liners (supported by a firmer muffin liner or aluminium cup) to the brim

– place the above into a pot of boiling water (cover lid with cloth) and steam over high heat for 12 mins. turn off fire and let the cakes sit in the pot for another 3 mins before removing lid
蒸锅将水烧开后(盖子裹上一块布),将以上准备好的杯子蛋糕摆入,以大火蒸 12分钟。熄火后,让发糕在蒸锅里闷 3分钟后再打开盖子

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

– the above ingredient proportion yields a mildly sweet huat kuey. if you desire a cake with stronger nutella taste, feel free to reduce milk and increase nutella portion. just bear in mind that the batter needs to be thick for it to bloom. please refer to this post on how the batter should look

– add chopped chocolate or chocolate chips to enhance the chocolate flavour

    Wow, your huat kueh smile \”Very Sweet\” o! 🙂
    Well done Victoria !!

  • Kimmy (March 29, 2015)

    Hi Victoria, can I replace Nutella with some other ingredients? Would love to try this recipe that yields really \’happy\’ huat kuihs.

    • Victoria Bakes (March 29, 2015)

      Hi Kimmy, how are you? Ok.. The question is very vast.. Not sure what you mean by ingredients in this recipe, but I would presume you mean a jam with the same consistency. If so, maybe other chocolate jam (I may even try peanut butter , probably slightly lesser amount) but definitely not kaya or strawberry jam alike where it tends to be lest \”paste-y\” than Nutella. If you use the same amount of strawberry jam, you will not achieve the blossoming effect. The trick in this recipe, is that it has to be sticky. You can check out my strawberry huat kuey indicated in the link above in the post. Hope this helps 🙂

      • Kimmy (March 30, 2015)

        Thanks for your prompt response. Trying with peanut butter is a good option. I really appreciate your tips on how to get the \’smiling\’ huat kuihs.
