Yummy! May I know where did you buy the silicon mould? Roughly how much is it?

Hi Cook.Bake.Love,

This is a plastic mould which I bought from an old shop few years back. I had forgotten about the price already.

Ean said...

if i would like to use the bowl , i will need to longer the steam to long minutes right?

Happy Flour said...

Hi Ean,

If you are using porcelain small bowl then steam for 5mins longer depend on the thickness of your bowl. Use a skewer to test whether it cooked. If you are using metal bowl, it better to line with paper cups.

hi trying to make it today. but too bad to get the sugar in brown..it is very challenging..
1)i put the sugar to the pot stir it till brown, do i need to off the fire now before i put in the water?
2)my sugar become hard and very sticky after i done beating the batter, how? pls help..thanks

Hi Ean,

Do not stir the sugar while it is browning in the pot. Add in the water slowly but do not stir, just move the pot around so that the caramel can dissolve in the water. Once it dissolved just removed from fire as it will continue to boil and thicken slightly.(Pour syrup in a bowl and leave it to cool.) Watch your fire at all time, if you are not sure just use low fire. Do give it another try.
