This Home Baker In S’pore With A Long Waiting List Makes Traditional Yam Cake With Lupcheong!

With Singapore being such a multi-racial country, we are never short of different cuisines to try. With all the different dialects like Teochew, Hakka, and Cantonese, they have given rise to a plethora of different dishes for us to enjoy. For the Cantonese, one popular dish is the Cantonese Chee Cheong Fun. Stalls like Pin Wei Hong Kong Style Chee Cheong are a fine example of the scrumptious food each cuisine has to offer. Another Cantonese dish is Yam Cake and that’s where Kelly’s Sweet Treats comes in!

The yam cake is filled with ingredients like mushrooms, hae bi, shallots and chilli. It is full of flavour and the chilli gives the perfect amount of kick without being too overpowering. One unique ingredient in the yam cake is the lupcheong, which you don’t see very often in traditional ones. Don’t worry, some things are worth breaking tradition for! The lupcheong adds another depth of flavour and elevates the taste of the yam cake. Some might find the addition of it unconventional but then again, who would say no to tasty lupcheong?
