Aspiring Bakers #12: Traditional Kueh (October 2011)

Hello to all Aspiring Bakers Family members and members-to-be!
I'm back hosting Aspiring Bakers #12!

I have asked everyone to decide the theme for this month and received many good suggestions. They will all be taken into consideration. Another good news is the future themes will not be restricted to baking only as we will also have cooking-related themes. :)

Back here. The theme for this month is "Traditional Kueh"!

I understand why it is so popular. For most of us, they are our favourite local delights for breakfast and snack times. From steamed carrot cake, pumpkin kueh, yam kueh to png kueh, soon kueh, chwee kueh and ang ku kueh. I also like to include chee cheong fun, fatt kueh, mian jian kueh and many others too.

Besides Chinese kueh, I'm sure you also like all the malay and nyonya kueh which most of the time uses coconut, coconut milk, pandan leaves or gula melaka. I'm not too familiar with nyonya kueh, I only remembered I always eat steamed kueh lapis peeling layer by layer. Kueh tutu is one of my favourite too!

Do make some and share your recipes with us. I look forward to your active participation and support for this event!
