Steam Lapis Bumi Cake ~ 蒸咖啡千层蛋糕

This little rose cake you see here is the last tablespoon batter of my steamed coffee layer cake. After i finished steaming the layer cake there is still some batter left but no enough to cover the cake so i took a silicone rose mould and make it into this..:D

This is a very rush steamed coffee layer cake. It is also named Steam Lapis Bumi Cake. I am crazy to make this 3 hours ago..:p but i wanted to share this because this cake is simply really delicious.
My apologize for this is not a very handsome looking layer cake..:p

Lapis Bumi/ Coffee layer cake
recipe from : my sister connie
450g butter

10 eggs

388g condensed milk (i reduced to 300g)
300g Kaya (i used Glory brand)
270g plain flour
200g Horlick

5 tsp instant coffee powder add 2 tbsp warm water to diluted
(i added 6 tsp with 3 tsp warm water)

To do:
1) Beat A till pale and fluffy. Add in B, one egg at a time and blend well.
2) Add in C and D beat  till all combine.
3) Divide batter into two portions. one plain and the other one add in dilute coffee.

4) Steam in a 8x8 inches square pan layer by layer( each layer is 170g of  batter). Each layer I steam for 5 minutes. Do not steam too long as the surface of this cake will wrinkle and causes uneven layers.

I packed it nicely to give to a friend..:D

  1. Hehe, I also rushed out a very last minute coffee-flavoured puteri ayu this afternoon. I was thinking maybe I will be the last one, number 49, and we are still short of 1 recipe to make it 50.

    But then you did it! Thanks for your cake, the rose shape is lovely! And what's more, it is a horlicks cake, my favourite!

    1. Ms B,
      I read your mind heehee
      So rush to steamed a cake..LOL

      Thanks for hosting.
      Have a lovely weekend!

  2. 很美,很美,我很喜欢咖啡做的蛋糕!

    1. Cass,

  3. Lovely rose steamed coffee cake! To me the layered steamed coffee cake looks great too. I love coffee but can't drink it so any cake with coffee is certainly my kind of cake! Your sister Connie does have great recipes. Great idea combining Horlicks & coffee! Well done to the both of you :)

    1. Kit,
      Thanks for your kind words.
      Oh! I am the same as you, I love coffee but I can't drink as it will cause discomfort to my tummy. You are right anything with coffee is my kind of cake too.
      Yeah! Come let's have tea together with this cake .You can have the steamed rose and I have the lapis:D
      Have a lovely weekend:)

  6. Looks so moist and delicious...

  7. mui mui~~

    1. 莎莎,

  8. Mui Mui, this steamed coffee cake must be tasting good! I'm waiting for your box of steamed cake to arrive, hahaha!

    1. Jess,
      This is really good with the combi of Horlick and coffee.
      Watch out for the postman he is going to send a parcel to you:p

  9. Mui Mui, so rajin leh! There is something very attractive about layered cakes and kuih. But me too lazy....Your steam lapis bumi cake looks very good. I wish I can have some :) The rose is cute!

    1. Phong Hong,
      Thanks for compliments. It's been a long tome since I make this.
      So I take this opportunity to make this cake and in the same time can submit my post to AB.
      Come, help yourself...:D

  10. The steamed cake is so nicely made... If for me, don't think i have the patient to do it...

    1. Thanks Sharon.
      This is atually not that daunting compare to the grill version lapis cake.

  11. Hi Doreen,

    I don't see any "rush" in your cakes. They are so neatly made :D


    1. Zoe,
      I hide the rush hour

  12. so nice and even layers, cant see is a rush job leh, well done my dear friend!

  13. Hi Mui Mui, the steamed rose cake look very cute. Your steamed coffee cake look very good, the layering look so neat and even.
    Love the combination. I'd taste this cake once only, given by a Sarawak friend but haven't attempt to make my own. My to do list long like toilet rolls already. LOL

  14. Hi Mui Mui, May I know why do we use Kaya? Can we do without it? Or can we replace with other thing?

    1. Hi Ken,
      The kaya is for the taste. As you can see there is Horlick ,condensed milk and KAYA, these ingredients compliments each other very well. .If you don't like kaya I think you can choose something to replace it but must be something that have the same texture and consistency as kaya.
      You can be creative with the ingredient but the taste will definitely be different.
      If you do make with a different ingredient do share with me how is the outcome.
      Thank you.

  15. Hi, i didn't see any sugar in your ingredient?no nd sugar?

Shark Fin Dumpling ~鱼翅饺

This Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow), is one of my favorite dumpling. Although it is named Shark Fin Dumpling, but they contain no actual shark fin in it. Some say the look and shape of the dumpling does look like shark fin and other do include in imitation shark fin, though. I am lucky to have spotted this long hibernating in the book shelf chinese dim sum book ‘香港地道小吃’ translated as 'Hong Kong Authentic Tapas' Well, Do, you find this look like Shark's Fin?? 看看形状像不像鱼翅呢??  Filling for the ingredients are prawn, mince meat, carrot, yam bean and black fungus. Get ready the filling and the wanton wrappers. This is the parade of my Shark's Fin dumpling ... lol Homemade parchment paper liner. Arrange them neatly into the bamboo steamer. HOT! HOT! From the steamer!! Loaded with filling ..YUM! ENJOY~ Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow) (Scallop dumpling /Cilantro dumpling - depends which filling you using) Recipe adapted from  ‘香港地
