Ma Lai Koh
is a common dish 
served in a Dim Sum restaurant

Many people like its spongy texture
Others like its unique colour and fragrant from Gula Melaka

It is the Gula Melaka 
that makes it different from the traditional steamed cakes

Special thanks 
to Miss Jess Ooi 
who gladly shared this recipe with us

so fluffy the texture inside


A. 150g Gula Melaka, chopped
     100g hot water
     3 eggs, whisk until light
     65g cooking oil

B. sifted together
     150g self raising flour
     1/2 tsp baking powder
     1/2 tsp baking soda

C.Topping: toasted kuaci

1) pour hot water over chopped Gula Melaka, stir until sugar is dissolved. 
    Sieve & leave aside to cool
2) when cooled, add whisked egg & oil, mix well
3) add flour & mix until combined
4) strain the batter, cover & leave aside for 30-40 min
5) line muffin cups with paper & pour in batter to 90% full
6) decorate top with some toasted kuaci
7) steam for 15min on high flame
