  1. Dear Rose,
    Thanks again for your generosity in putting all your recipes on the net for the good of the people, esp the cooking enthusiasts!

    If I want to make a smaller cake, can I “halve” the ingredients and also, can I just use vegetable oil instead of butter?

    May God continue to keep you in good health all the days of your life!

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

  2. Yes, you can try using corn oil. For half the recipe, you can also bake them in small muffin tins.
    I just made one pudding using Hoen Kwe flour, if its good I’ll add to the recipe list.

    Hope you enjoy baking!
    May the Lord bless you with wisdom and talents.

    Was referred by Aunty Yochana to your blog. It’s amusing how you are so generous in sharing your recipes.

    I tried to replace veg oil in place of melted butter in a banana cake and the result was less than satisfactory. For your recipe, do we use the same amount of veg oil as butter? How about steps, still as above?

    Here’s wishing you health and prosperity in the new year.

    Tried your Huat Kuay receipe thrice. It tastes great. I have reduced the brown sugar by 100g. I used Indonesia sweet potatoes which are very sweet. One problem, the kuay wont “smile”. Please enlighten me. Thx

    Best Regards

    You should try using Yogurt, it makes the cake so moist and tasty.
