Apam Ubi Kukus @ Steamed Sweet Potato Pan Huat Kuih

This pan 'apam' is very popular among the Malays and its normally serve with salty grated coconut, but the Chinese named this as 'huat gao' meaning wealthy cake which is also very popular in China. Unlike the common 'huat kuih' with the smiling face, this kuih only be able to give you a flat & nice surface. Meanwhile, the only version you can get from the local market place was the 'gula melaka flavour apam' not other than that. I guess this sweet potato version going to rock the market. haha.... So, here's what I did.

Ingredients :
280gm   all purpose flour
200gm   purple sweet potato,  mashed
100gm  sugar
3/4 tspn   yeast
220ml  water

Method :
Beat everything together till well combined then transfer batter to a 8" greased tray. Leave to rest for an hour or till double in size. Finally, steam for 20 minutes over preheated steamer. Once its done, off the heat and let it sit for 5 minutes before moving out from the steamer. Now, leave the cake cool completely before slicing then serve with grated coconut.

*2 cups grated young coconut
(mix with 1 tspn of salt then steam for 10 minutes)

I simply adore the colour and the cake turns out really pretty too !

Make sure you wash or clean the knife with wet tower after each slicing, this will gives you beautiful cuts.

I brought this kuih apam to the meet up during the night and unexpectedly, they finished off every single piece of them.  And telling me that they love the smell & taste of the sweet potato very much. It is light & moist & super delicious with the coconut combination  Actually, I love it too cause it tastes unlike the one selling out there. I hope you'll love it too ! Enjoy.
