Ma Lai Ko

Tried out Aunty Yochana's Ma Lai Ko. I altered the recipe abit. These Ma Lai Ko are so easy to make and yet so soft and yummy. I ate three at one go because they were so light.

Place Ma La Ko in steamer

Remove Ma Lai Ko when they are piping hot

Soft and Yummy Ma Lai Ko


Recipe goes this way
(A)
180 gm. brown sugar
5 eggs
1tsp pandan paste

(B)
120 gm. corn oil
130 gm. fresh milk

(C)
305 gm. plain flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. bicarbonate of Soda

Method:

(1) Whisk (A) till sugar dissolves then add in (B) and mix till smooth. Add in (C) and mix well. Rest for 25 to 30 mins.
(2) Pour batter into any plastic moulds and steam at high heat for 15 mins. or until cooked.
Remove ma lai koh immediately while it is still hot.

Is it necessary to use plastic mold? Did u line or grease the mold? Ur Ma Lai Ko unmolded very nicely.

Can I use paper cup (those pleated paper cup meant for cup cake)or muffin tray to steam this?

Paper cups are fine. You will need to grease the mould so that they would come out nicely when you overturn them. A very easy and yet yummy steamed cake

Hi Olivia,

Thanks for your advice.

May I know how full you fill up ur mould?

Olivia said...

Actually I have filled it up about 3/4 full. This will allow room for expansion.

Cheers

Hi Olivia,

It's me again. I forgot to ask you if the eggs need to be beaten till ribbon stage or just lightly beaten will do.

Thanks a lot for your advice. I plan to do this soon. ^O^

Olivia said...

Hi Let's Masak The egg yolk and sugar just beat till fluffy will do. I think it should be ribbon stage.

Cheers

Hi Olivia,

Thanks for your advice. So I think it can be done by manual egg beater right?

May I know if it still remain soft the next day? I plan to do it at night and bring to my parents place on the next day.

Olivia said...

Hi Let's Masak, manual is fine. Cake is rather soft though the next day but if you want to eat them hot, just re-steam them will be wonderful.

Cheers

Hi Olivia,
Just wondering can I replace the plain flour with cake flour? If so, should I increase/decrease the amount or still use 305g? Thank you :)
