My first attempt of making  Fatt  Koh which is smiling steamed cake and fatt koh means prosperity. This is a must for Chinese during prayers. They are other version too but I tried this one using self raising flour.

I'm using my muffin cup but you can also utilize any shallow glass bowl or heatproof plastic mold to steam them but make sure you grease your container before filling with the batter.


250g Self-raising flour (sifted)
170g Brown sugar
100ml water
150g thick coconut mil
pinch of salt

1. Boil brown sugar with water. Strain and let cool.
2. Mix flour, sugar syrup,salt and coconut until well combined.
3. Heat sm cups in the steamer, pour batter till 90% full.
4. Steam 20 mins with high heat.

I bet the brown sugar and coconut milk combo is really tasty. Now, I just have to translate that into cups etc...haha. Thanks for sharing.

These look really interesting! Are you supposed to eat them plain or with something else?

withoutadornment....You can eat them as it is since they are sweetened with brown sugar and coconut milk imparts a nice flavor to this steamed cake..
