Puteri Ayu (steamed mini pandan sponge cake) , launch of My Kedai Runcit


The other day i bought these little cute bundt moulds and thinking to use it to make jelly. I was not realized that actually peoples are using this mould to make Puteri Ayu (steamed mini sponge cake). When i saw Amelia dessert posted her Puteri Ayu, i quickly give it a try..Frankly i have never eaten this cake before..Once we tasted this, all my family members were very impressed with this mini steamed sponge cake, the 1st batched i did just gone in the same day, and they were asking for more...

Launch of My Kedai Runcit (Shop)

I have been receiving many readers asking me where to buy this and that. I try to provide them with the shop address but some couldn't go there because the distance or not familiar with the area. Sometime i help to buy for them. ..So i came out with this idea of My Kedai Runcit (shop) I will help to source of the baking items, traditional moulds or whatever items or ingredients that you have seen in my blog. I will pack them and ship to you and you pay for the shipping cost..I know i will not earn much out of this (that's why i called my shop as kedai runcit, earning few cents and ringgit only ^_^), but i just like to help to who has the same passion like me (love to cook and bake!!)..
Please refer to top right page for My Kedai Runcit..Oversea buyers are welcome too, but you need to consider of the shipping cost (afraid the shipping cost is more than items cost) before you decide to place an order..

Happy Shopping !!

I have been a lurker of your blog for over a year and really amazed at your cooking skills. I am going to try several of your recipes and will definitely use your "shopping service" which I am excited about. I am oversea (US) and aware of the shipping cost. Thank you for starting the service and please keep cooking and posting it for all of us to enjoy.

Not too long ago my staff gave me some of this cake to sample. They were really good but I was too shy to ask for recipe. You make my dream come true! Also your shop is a great idea. I may buy some stuff form you.

love2dine said...

malay steam cake right.. i like it..

Sharon @ Feats of Feasts said...

hi sonia, the kedai runcit idea is awesome...i wanted to ask you where to get the pork skewers thing but already purchased the usual one to see if work or not first. :)

Jessie-CookingMoments said...

Sonia, you really need a rest now b4 the biz starts! I certainly believe that you are not doing this for money & you cook.bake is purely due to the interest! I'm so glad to know someone like you, hahaha!

Hey these mini bundt moulds look so familiar, gagaga! That's right, I remember you told me b4 that they can be used for making jelly only & now I can use them for steaming sponge cake, brilliant!

1 question, Sonia, if I can't find cake emulsier(& don't want to use it), what should I be using as a substitute?

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Jessie, you can read my mind, hehehe..I also thinking to omit the emulsier next time to see the difference, so for this moment I could not tell you yet.

Esther @ thefussfreechef said...

Hi Sonia, these little beauties sure look mouthwatering. Love your recipes. Great idea on the kedai runcit :)

Shu Han said...

I came across your blog and found your lovely pandan cake. I live in Malaysia currently and see these cakes quite often. I love the pandan flavor in the cake and the steaming makes it so soft and moist. Beautiful shade of green, too. Thanks for sharing.
