Hi Aunty,

Will there be a marked difference to the texture of the steam cakes if I omit the ovalette?

Hi

Very lovely cakes!! yummy.

Would like to know whether i can subsitute dessicated coconut for the grated coconut.

Hi anonymous,

If you use desiccated coconut, just sprinkle lightly into the mould instead of pressing down hard into the mould.

Hi,

I think ovalette is important for this steam cake so please do not omit this ingredient.

Hi Sulin,

I did not grease my mould but you brush a little if you're afraid that i't difficult to unmould. For silicone mould, no need to grease. It comes out easily.

Hi Aunty

Very lovely cute cakes!

Thanks for sharing the recipe. Would like to ask - what is coffee paste?

regards

yochana said...

Hi anonymous.

Coffee paste is just a paste with a coffee fragrance. To substitute, just stir some Nescafe granules with some hot water.
