Sorry for the one month’s absence. I have not enjoyed or tried any dishes that was worth posting about, thus, the reason for the lack of post. Anyway, today I would like to share with you our local favourite cake, The Nyonya Yam Cake Recipe. It was my mom’s first attempt and the result was pretty good, if I may say so. Take a look for yourself!


Right side is what it looks like before garnishing is added



Part 1

400 g diced yam

4 tablespoon oil

Part 2

3 cups of water

200 g rice flour

5 g tapioca flour

Add salt, pepper, five spice powder, sugar according to taste

For Garnishing

Dried shrimps, minced garlic, oil, diced red chilli, fried shallot and diced spring onion (which we ran out of and did not include it)


1. Fragrant diced yam with oil, add in ingredients Part 1 and keep on stirring until mixture thickens. Pour everything into baking pan and steamed for 20 minutes.

2. Fragrant dried shrimps with minced garlic and then mixed with the rest of the garnishing ingredients. Sprinkle on top of yam cake. That’s all there is to it.
