Oh.. how nice the little cute cakes there! I found that you could steam very nice cake. It looks very soft and the shape is really pretty. May I know whether the mold is plastic or silicon type? Is it easy to unmold the cakes? I saw there are no crumbs sticking at the side of the mould. How nice!!

where is your place - I can find "the an old shop" rather then going down "Sun Lik" must find parking space ERP and CDB
thank u - cchua

Happy Flour said...

Hi CChua,

Hahaha, I don't drive but I understand what you meant by making a trip to Sun Lik. I will go there unless there is a necessarily.

Unfortunately, the old shop creased their business few months ago. You can try one more place, Ang Mo Kio central. I forgotten the shop name and address. It located beside S11 Coffee shop and opposite Jubile Cinema. The shop sell kitchen utensils and all sort of things. Hope this help.

Hi CChua,

I recalled, Phoon Huat they do carry this plastic mould. You can also drop by any of their store.

Hi HF,

I tried making your this super attractive & delicious mini donut cakes yesterday but failed... :{ Mine turned out to be flat, looked & taste like kuih instead of similar like yours, light & fluffy. :{ Can you please advice me what is wrong so I can improved? :P

Problems:
1) When I whisk the eggs, sugar & ovalette together (point 3), no matter how long I whisk, it looked like normal beaten eggs, I don't know if that is the ribbon stage and I don't understand what do you mean by if it stays 'visible'...)

2) When I add in the flour, vanilla essence and water, it becomes very watery. Is it supposed to be watery almost like those batter which u fried goreng pisang?

3) When I filled green batter into the moulds and followed by the plain batter, the colors started to mix together and again unlike yours, with 2 color tone.

Please..please advice me HF...Thanks a lot! :)

Hi HF,

My first attempt of making your this super light, fluffy & delicious looking mini donut cakes yesterday failed... :{ Mine turned out to be flat, looked & taste like kuih instead of similar like yours, light & fluffy. :{ Can you please advice me what is wrong so I can improved? :P

Problems:
1) When I whisk the eggs, sugar & ovalette together (point 3), no matter how long I whisk, it looked like normal beaten eggs, I don't know how does ribbon stage looks like and I don't understand what do you mean by if it stays 'visible'... Please pardon me if I have asked a silly question because I am a newbie in cooking & baking.

2) When I add in the flour, vanilla essence and water (point 4), it becomes very watery. Is it supposed to be watery which is similar like those batter which u fried goreng pisang except even more watery?

3) When I filled green batter into the moulds and followed by the plain batter, the colors started to mix together and again unlike yours, with 2 color tone.

Please enlighten me what did I do wrong. Thank you so much. :)

Hi Melody,

The problem is that the egg batter was not whisked until thick and fluffy, meaning double in volume and pale in colour. You need to use a cake mixer to the job.

Melody said...

Thanks Happy Flour. :) Oh, sorry for the double posting. :P

Hi Happy Flour,

Is the green peas flour the indonesia brand mung bean starch that is available at NTUC (around 90 g per pack)?

Happy Flour said...

Hi Haunshi,

It was packed in a cylinder tube, 120g and it written 'Tepung Hoen Kue' with a rooster logo. You can use any brands which is available.

hanushi said...

Thanks Happyflour for the detailed information!!

One more question, is the flour green/brown/white in colour?

Happy Flour said...

Hi Haunshi,

The green peas flour is white.

hanushi said...

Thanks Happyflour!!
