I made 2 batches of huat kueh, rose flavouring and gula melaka.
They are soft and chewy texture, just the way I like it.
For the rose flavour, I added 3/4 tbsp of rose flavouring, which I found still not enough fragrant.Next time should add 1 tbsp of rose flavouring, nonetheless, I love this flavour a little bit more than gula melaka huat kueh.
Thanks Kristy for this recipe :)
100 gm warm water
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp sugar
10 gm yeast
350 ml water
300 gm sugar
( for rose flavour I used 1 tbsp rose flavour + some red colouring)
( for brown sugar version I used 200 gm sugar + 100 gm gula melaka to replace the sugar)
500 gm all purpose flour
10 gm cooking oil/butter
Combine ingredient (B) and dissolve sugar over medium heat until just boiling.
Leave the ingredients (B) cool for about 15 mins.
Combine ingredients (A) and leave a side for 10 mins.
Combine ingredients (A), (B) and (C) together and mix well.
Leave to proof for 3-4 hrs.
The mixture will look very fluffy and moist.
Preheat steamer in medium heat.
Stir batter before divide into small cups for steaming.
Use a pair of scissors slightly coated the edges with cooking oil.
Then make a cross cut through each cups.
Coat the scissors with cooking oil before each cuttings.
Finally, steam for 30 minutes over medium high heat.Not medium & not high, it's in between. The steaming heat is very important. It helps to give you more bigger smile on you huat kueh.
