Steamed Glutinous Soft Cake @ QQ Ruan Gao

This special steamed cake is one of my favourite childhood snack. What I love about this cake it has to be that aroma brought me to it ! I then found out the secret of this cake only a few years back.... that special aroma is actually came from banana essence. HAhaha...  But then never had I thought of making it at home, NOT TILL a few days back when I accidentally pumped up the recipe again. I was immediately inspired by the homemade steamed glutinous rice cake prepared by this blogger. Such an easy and hassle free recipe and here's what I did.

Ingredients :
150gm   glutinous rice flour
25gm  wheat starch
25gm   tapioca starch
110gm   sugar
200ml   water (mix with 1/2 tspn  banana essence)

* 1 tspn rose flavoured red food colouring (mix with 1 TB water)
* 1 cup  rice flour (toast for 10 minutes before using)

Method :
(1) combine all dry ingredients into a big bowl and mix well.
(2) next, stir in water to form a thick batter then pour batter to a 7" or 9" greased tray.
(3) steam for 15 minutes over medium heat.

Note :  I used a 7" tray for one recipe and the cake came out quite thick. I supposed the 9" tray should give a perfect thickness to this steamed cake.

Once the cake is done, immediately brush on the red rose flavoured colouring to steamed cake. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.

Now, try to loosen all the side of the cake by using a plastic scrapper and then simply start rolling it in the tray like a Swiss roll with the scrapper.

Finally, sprinkle some cooked rice flour to the tray and slowly transfer the rolled cake to working table. Leave cake to cool then keep refrigerated for 30 minutes before slicing. And you're done !

At the same time, I would like to thank all for the birthday greetings & blessings. I am so lucky to have you all. LOVE YOU ALL ! ((hugs)) 
I'm sending this to Foodie Friday.
