jessi said...

aunty,

why add eno? can i replace with instant yeast?

yochana said...

Hi Jessi,

Yes you can add in 1 tsp. instant yeast but you must proof it for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours before steaming.

Aunty

What is Hongkong Flour?

Thank You so much :)

yochana said...

Hi ,

Hong kong flour is normally used for making pows and it's low in gluten.

You can use cake flour or plain flour if you don't have hong kong flour.

Hi Lucy

Can I use self-raising flour with baking powder instead of HK flour ?

Thanks!

MsCake said...

Oh so Sorry Lucy, did not finish reading all the comments by yr readers. Just saw that can use cakeflour or plain flour, tht means we need to use 1 tsp baking powder ?

Thanks
Catherine
