Kek Lumut Sarawak

Kek Lumut?? What is this? Lumut means 'Algae', does my cake looks like a piece of algae to you? ^.^ It is a popular cake in Sarawak. A very sweet and moist cake. There are quite a few variations for this steamed green cake, I chosen this particular recipe which the author given the best review :) The cake itself is very fragrant, despite cutting down the butter and sugar, it is still very very sweet and oily >.< But I like the moist texture, nestum and green tea flavour of the cake, even my girl took 2 mouthful, now waiting for my boy to test out :)

Recipe adapted (with slight modifications) from HomeKreation
Sarawak Steamed Green Cake
Ingredient (6" square)

  1. Cream butter and sugar light and fluffy.
  2. Beat in eggs one at a time until well combined.
  3. Fold in sugee flour and nestum.
