    Hi Victoria,
    In this receipe ( steamed Malay roll) under direction point 2, \”place sugar, evaporated milk, water and butter…..\” may I clarify how much butter do we need to put as I don\’t find butter under your ingredients.

    Hope to hear from you soon as i want to try this receipe. Thank you.

      hello Evelyn, apologies for the confusion. it should have been the coconut oil (or oil). thanks for pointing out

  • julia (September 7, 2015)

    This sounds so great! I\’d love to try it. But what is coconut cream powder? Is it a must? I have never seen or heard of such and I\’m not sure if i can get it here in Germany
