1. Lightly grease & line 20cm round or square mould.
2. Beat A until light & fluffy. Add in B slowly, cream until smooth & light.
3. Add in sieved C, mix until well-blended.

Have been looking something to steam because my oven still under repair. :-( Take so long to reapair the door... almost 1 month .. sigh ! :-(

Got this recipe from my sister!
I'm happy with the result because it was my 1st Fatt Gou. It's really FATT a..... hahaaa :D

But...i don't really like it because the taste of the yeast was too strong, it covered the taste of gula melaka :P Anyway.... if you are interested, do visit my sister's blog! http://http//
