  1. Whisk sugar , eggs, ovalette and fresh milk till thick and fluffy for about 5-8mins.
  2. Add in condense milk and vanilla essence.
  3. Fold in sifted flour and stir till well mixed. Stir in cream corn and salt.
  4. Divide into 3 portions.
  5. 1 portion - leave plain and the other 2 portions, add in yellow colouring.
  6. Line and grease an 8" x 8" square tray.
  7. Pour in 1 layer of yellow colour portion into the tray and steam for about 15 mins.
  8. Then pour in the plain portion and then steam for another 15 mins.

top flour renders a softer & fluffy cake compare to normal plain flour, if unavailable cake flour can also be used. ovalette is a kind of cake emulsifier a orange yellow gel used for a soft & moist cake,
