  Tips
  • Don't use the large trays, the smaller trays will save your steaming time.
  • Use a chopstick to stab in the cake and pull it out. If there's no sticky mixture on the chopstick, that means the cake's done.
  • You can preserve the cake in freezer, and it won't get cracked because we add the starch the cake. The starch also make the cake chewy.
