Kek 'Lumut' Sarawak / Sarawak 'Algae' Cake

This cake is still oily, even though I cut down the butter.
But, I still love this cake, love the aroma of this cake, it has the nestum and green tea fragrant.

Recipe from adapted from HomeKreation .

Ingredients :
5 eggs
1 cup caster sugar ...(I used 3/4 cup)
8 oz butter...( I used 190 gm)
1/2 cup sugee flour
1 cup nestum.
1/2 cup ideal milk
1/2 cup tea ( 2 tsp green tea powder +water)
21/2 tsp pandan paste

Prepare a 9 inch tin. I lined it with aluminium floil.
Beat egg until fluffy.
Add in sugar gradually while beating.
In another bowl, beat butter until fluffy & add into the egg batter.
Add in sugee flour & nestum, mix well.
Lastly add in milk, tea & pandan paste.
Steam for 2 hours until cooked.

Hi Cindy. My hubby loved it too. Another blogger who tried it add on more Nestum to cut down the oily texture & it worked.

I actually bought all the ingredients but still thinking whether to make it since it's got so much butter! Maybe, I'll think some more lol! Meantime, just drool over your cake:D

Nice job, there. From the ingredients I can imagine the texture of this cake. Is it something like kuih lapis nyonya?
Hope you're enjoying the weekend, dear.

Hi Kristy, nope, it's different from kuih nyonya, this cake quite oily and dense too.
