  15. Sounds really easy peasy there. Must try this one out and see if it blossoms as splendidly as yours!

  16. Hi,

    I stumbled upon your site and is amazed at all your artistic creations:-)

    All your huat kuey “blossom” so beautifully that I’m so motivated to make some for coming lunar new year. If I just want to make the original yellow type without cocoa and jam, do I need to adjust other ingredients?

    Wishing you a healthy prosperous year ahead!

    • Hello Amy

      thanks for your lovely compliment. i’d say try using the strawberry HK recipe as a base: but just take out the jam (as it really was for flavouring more than anything else), so i think it should work on its own. in this post, i also showed how the batter should look like (somewhat sticky). if it gets too sticky, u can add a tbsp of milk but i won’t go more than that (apologies, just gut feel)

      please let me know how it goes, and i love to hear how you tweaked your version🙂

      thanks for coming by

      • Hi Victoria,

        Thanks so much for your reply:-)

        I just tried to make huat kuey today (w/ strawberry jam) as CNY is quickly approaching. It was delicious, but unfortunately they didn’t blossom like yours did. Mine came out looking like regular cupcakes😦 Will perhaps try again this weekend if time permits. Looking forward to trying all your other recipes.

        Wishing you a prosperous healthy year!

  17. Hi Amy, do give it a go again.. It should blossom very nicely as long as you blast your fire. Do remember huat kuey needs high heat to blossom. Also, fill the batter right to the brim, not half way.. All these should do the trick. Oh and one last thing, the batter has to be very thick..

    You have a very good CNY too🙂

  18. Hi, can i replace coco powder with milo powder?

  19. Wow, so beautiful, thanks for sharing
