Steamed Rice Cake



Recipe is from 'Magic Steamed Cake' by Alex Goh.

Hehehe...just give me a 'cheese'(small crack on the suface of the cake), not a big one, please. :) Don't you find that these Wan Goh Kueh has a small smile instead.

A simple Steamed Rice Cake without yeast, 'Eno'(fruit salt) or rice fermentation(tapai). The texture may not be as soft and fluffy as my last post on Wan Goh Kueh but its acceptable for my boys and myself. My boys do enjoyed the cakes, I think it was properly they are colourful. :)

Recipe

Ingredients
200g rice flour
75g cake flour
330g water
130g sugar
3tsp double-action baking powder

I almost wanted to buy that book.
But after looking through it, all the recipes uses a lot of baking powder. So, I put it back on the shelves.
Your steamed cakes look very soft

I saw this recipe in his book and tried it as well. But sotong me, I swapped the amount for rice flour and plain flour unknowingly. The outcome is good as well. haha... :)

Now that I see it again, maybe I should try again someday with the right amount. :)

They look soft and moist! This is an easier way to make than using yeast or fermented rice.

Hi Wendyywy,

I agreed with you, all the recipes uses a lot of baking powder. The recipes which I had tried, I reduced the rising agent and it turn out well too. You can taste the funny chemical taste if too much rising agent is used.

You can give it a try by adding fruit juice.
