  2. Hi Lily, thanks for visiting my blog. Yes, it was absolutely tasty! I wanted to make some more in another two more days. I thought you can't easily get the wine yeast at your place. Is it right? Even the asian store not selling it?

  3. hi there, i've try your recipe twice but it turn out bit hard and doesnt smile at all. is there any secret behind it?? can share??


  4. Hi Audrey,

    So sorry, I've missed your comment. Actually, the whole process is link. By the time you stir in the ENO, quickly place the batter to the cups and go striaght to the steamer while the ENO still active. And make sure your steamer is ready by then & the ENO also very well mixed. And must steam over high heat. Wish you luck!

    Regards, Kristy
