Sarawak Serikaya Cake






Recipe from Y3K Delicious Cakes by Amy Heng
This recipe used steam bake method but the other recipe which I have used a long hours of steaming method. So I wanted to try out the steam bake method and compare both the outcome. I divided the batter into two portions. The oval Serikaya Cake was steam bake which has a dry and crack top :( but the cake was very soft. Whereas the square Serikaya Cake was very soft over all. :) Conclusion, I still preferred the steaming method.
The recipe used black treacle however I don't have that so I replaced it with Gula Hitam browning. (available at Anna Phua)

Hi Andrea,

I follow the recipe add about 100g of browning sauce. Browning sauce give the cake the caramel taste and colour. This is the sauce which make the cake so special.

Hi Eron,

Yes, I did adjust on the sweetness from the condensed milk and sugar. Any brand of kaya also can.
