Gula Melaka Huat Kuih

250 g AP flour
200 g gula melaka (palm sugar)
2 tsps of double acting baking powder (I used Clabber Girl)
1 egg, lightly beaten
250g santan (coconut milk)
1/2 tsp salt


In a large bowl, add gula melaka, salt, santan and heat up, stirring until gula melaka has dissolved. Allow it to cool first before adding the egg and whisk to combine.
Place sifted flour, and double acting baking powder into a large mixing bowl.
Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and slowly add the wet mixture. Mix with a hand whisk until lump free.
Divide into your preferred cup sizes and steam on high heat for 20-30 minutes (depending on cup sizes used.)
Notes: make sure the cover of the steamer is wiped dry before steaming the cakes to avoid water condensation dripping on to the kuih.
Do not open the steamer until the time is up.


Use 150g sugar, dissolve in coconut milk and add a few drops red colouring.



one recipe yields 2 large and 1 small huat kuih
