Beside radish cake, we also like steamed savoury yam cake, both using the similar way to prepare.

Hi Sonia,
Thanks for sharing this recipe. I just try it out this morning and i would say, it's been so long that I long to have such YAMMY yam cake. My helper commented that we can't stop at one... got to have 2 serving... hahaha... a keeper for me..
Once again, thank you very much...
Lydia from Singapore.

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Lydia, you are most welcome,Thanks for trying this recipe,glad to know you like this.

KS said...

Your receipe looks simple so decided to try. I tried to steam for 45mins and i use the toothpick to test it, seems still stick on the tootpick hence i steam for another 20 mins. Seems my yam cake a bit hard, is it overcook?

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

KS, you can not use skewer clean method to test the cake is done or not, steam 45mins is very sufficient.

ks said...

Sonia, thanks for advise, I will try again. Great that i found your blog. nice blog.
