Apam Keladi - Jom ke dapur

It's blessing in disguise .... sort of. When i could not be in front of my computer as much as i used to(my Mac Mini is still at the clinic), i started to be friendly with my kitchen again. Saaayang kitchen.

Got this recipe from a friend's book - One Publisher.

Something different and tastes good.
I only add 3 drops of the colouring, add more if you want darker.

Apam Keladi (Yam Steam Cake)


300 gm yam (diced & steamed)
400 gm superfine flour
350 gm sugar ----> i used 300gm
250 ml coconut milk (100ml thick coconut milk + 150ml water)
1 Tbsp baking powder
5 eggs (grade B) ---> i used 4 'A'
11 gm dried yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp yam essence (i don't use)
few drops of purple colouring


  • Blend steamed yam with coconut milk + few drops of purple colour, put aside.
  • Beat/whisk eggs, sugar & salt till light & fluffy
  • Add yeast, flour & baking powder (i premix them all)
  • Mix well
  • Pour in yam/coconut milk mixture, stirring to mix
  • Let it stand for 1 hour.
  • Fill mixture in mold of your choice. (fill @ 3/4 full & i used 'lompang' mold)
  • Steam for 20 - 25 mins.

Happy cooking
