Steamed Soft Cake (QQ Cake) QQ软糕

45 comments

Do you like this pretty little roll cake? I do and was so smitten by the sweet colour of the little roll cake. The recipe was shared by Little Blue, Kristy and Edith. Little Blue made this roll cake without adding in any essence whereas Kristy and Edith added banana essence. Personally, I prefer to have a bit of fragrance from banana essence, not too much though and have also boiled the water with pandan leaves so that the roll cake will not be a powdery taste. This soft and chewy roll cake is quite easy to make and can be served right away after rolling up. Store them in an airtight container at room temperature and best to consume within 2 days.



Steamed Soft Cake (QQ Cake)


    Ingredients:
     150g Glutinous flour
     40g Wheat flour
     15g Tapioca flour
     125g Sugar
     200g Water (boiled 300g water with 4 pandan leaves. Leave to cool and measure 200ml water+ 1.5tsp   banana essence

     1/4tsp rose pink colour mix with 2 tbsp water
     30g Glutinous flour (toast with pandan leaves for 10 mins at 180C before using) for coating





     Method:
  • Sift in flour ingredients into a big bowl and mix well with sugar.
  • Pour 200g water into the dry ingredients, stir to form a thick batter. Pour batter to a 9" greased tray (grease with vegetable oil). Steam for 15 minutes.
  • Once removed from steam, immediately brush on the red colouring. Let it sit for 10 mins before rolling it into a cylinder. Remove from pan.
  • Dust the cutting area with toasted glutinous flour, place the cake onto it and give a roll on the flour to coat evenly.
  • Grease knife with little and cut to the thickness according to your liking.

  3. Ooh, I like the idea of boiling with pandan leaves... The aroma rendered from the leaves should give this an even better fragrant when eating

  21. HI Ann!
    Aren't those roll cakes just perfectly gorgeous! You sure do have magic hands when it comes to making such beautiful delicacies. If I were to ever attempt to make these I'm sure they would be crummy and simply a mess. I bet the delicate fragrace and taste is simply amazing!!! Thank you so much for sharing, Ann...

  22. Hi Ann, just wonder if I could use a lamington pan which is about 9 x
    13 pan? How long do I need to steam using this pan? Thank you!

    1. Hi Lyn, This cake is quite flat and thin.You can try and steam for about 8-10 minutes. The texture is quite chewy and quite different from the very soft like 'mochi'.

    1. Hi Josephine, Did you greased the two trays and pour the batter on both trays at one time? If so, you should have steam one tray first, then grease the 2nd tray and stir the remaining batter and pour just before steaming.

  31. Hi Ann! I'm brand new to your blog. I don't have a steamer, any way to recreate a steamer in the oven? Like if I boiled a big pot of water and stuck it on the bottom of the oven with the cake tray on the middle rack and set the temperature to about 250F? Thanks so much for any help! Your photos are beautiful.

    1. Hi, You can use your big pot of water over the stove not in the oven. Then place a smaller tray over a wire rack inside the pot of water and steam the cake.
