Kek Lumut (Sarawak Steamed Green Cake)

 I made this delicious cake as a gift to Cik Riz who invited us for lunch at her house today. This cake is very popular in Sarawak but typically Sarawak cake require long hours of steaming which produces very moist cake. The rich ingredients make it very tasty and one piece is definitely not going to be enough....

My top photo shows a cut while the cake is still hot so it looks crumbly whilst the bottom photo looks more neat & moist when sliced a day later.

  3. 3 hours?? Wow...Is it somthing like the steamed fruit cake we have here in Peninsular? I dengar it's also steamed for 4 hrs. The texture is dense but moist, a bit "springy" to the bite, probably due to long hrs of steaming. I like that texture!

  7. Hi Roz, that Sarawak cake is really something fantastic. I sure love the green colour.
    Ini masuk mulut, satu tentu ta'chukup, ha ha.
    I can practically get the lovely scent from here.
    I can imagine the time you spend in the kitchen, one hand on hip making this....and your kids lining up waiting with spoons in their hands, "bila siap, mak"?

    Bila nak buat kek Toronto? Ha ha ha.
    Have fun and sure wish I can have 2 pieces of this cake.
    Ahhhh, but the gambar da masuk into my Apple...*wink*.
    Have a nice day. Lee.

  8. Roz, I lupa nak tanya everytime I datang here.
    How come your blog header atas tu ada Canadian advertising?
    You in Malaysia, but having Canadian adverts?

    Like my contractor used to say, 'I not be knowing why'? Ha ha.

  11. As'salam Along, first time letak komen sitok, loved your blog and your blog is amongst the many favourites of mine. My version of Kek Lumut is different cos ada makei air teh and nestum, hv tried it once tp so licak one, terpaksa makan makei sudu..I just don't how to alter the resepi, even my mum pun sik pandei nak alter resipe tu. Herannya my cousin yg guna same recipe kek turns out to be ok...

  14. Sweetylicious,
    If you like rich taste & moist cake, try this one. Wait till it is cool completely before slicing then it will look neat.

    Dayang,
    Wsalam. Kamek pun kek sik dapat tanding nak di polah toke...hehe. Aok eh, nyaman gilak kek ya, harum menggoda.

    Meldylocks,
    I think it probably cooked after 2 hours, original recipe calls for 2.5 hours but I purposely steamed for 3 hours for longer lasting.

    Priya,
    One of the specialty from Sarawak....

    HaSue,

    Only Fish Recipes,

    Uncle Lee,
    This cake is specialty from Sarawak and you must try one day, too good to miss. Haha my kids no longer queue with plates... they are all grown up and can help me with the oven and photographing.
    That shows how smart my advertisement that it can sense your presence. Do patronise it if you like.

    Wanieyra,
    Wsalam. Aish... cepat2 gi buat, tak tingin ke nengok kek along yg lembab harum menggoda tu...hehe rugi2 kalau terbuang bhn2 tu.

    Tun Telani,

    Nur68,
