Yam cake (or kuih)

I’m back from a fantastic trip to Florence (and Pisa)… and all I want to do is to go back. I mean, everything was great – the food, the weather, the atmosphere… you name it, Florence had it. And for some reason, our appetites doubled whilst we were there (perhaps a testament to the delicious food?), which led us to eat a ridiculous amount of food and gelato whilst we were there. But hey, it was a holiday so in my world it was a justified binge. πŸ˜€ I predictably took a whole load of photos, so do expect a few Florence related posts in the next few weeks.

In the meantime, I’ve written my first ever guest post for the lovely Bee of Rasa Malaysia. Her blog is fantastic, and is the place you want to go for tried and tested Malaysian and Chinese recipes and cooking tips – which explains why I was really excited when she invited me to write a guest post for her!

After much deliberation, I decided to write about yam cake, a savoury Malaysian kuih (snack). For the rest of the post, more photos and the recipe, please click HERE.

    1. You’re very welcome, and thank you for inviting me to guest post. πŸ™‚ Happy or kuih-ing, I hope it turns out well! x

  4. Congrats on the guest posting on Rasa Malaysia!

    I know, that’s why I’m glad I traveled abroad to pursue my college degree … got to be away from home, my once-comfort zone, just to realize we love to cook and bake!! We’re foodies!!

    I actually prefer taro cake/kuih to daikon cake/kuih … Dunno why … Haha! Yours look like the one I’ve known since young. πŸ˜‰

    1. Oh I much prefer yam cake to daikon cake too… I suspect it’s because of the amount of dried prawns in the yam cake. Haha!
