Labour Day activities....

This steamed 9-layers kuih(pudding) is very easy to put together but rather time consuming as we have to steam it layer by layer until it is done. Well yesterday was labour day and with plenty of time to kill, I set about making this pudding. The name said 9 layers but sometimes misjudgement of batter can lead to more or less layers lol! This time I get 10 layers. The recipe can be found here.

Also baked a Japanese Cotton Cheesecake since I have all the ingredients in the kitchen.  Japanese cheesecake is much lighter in texture than the western varieties as there is no cream added.

Finally, since the oven is already hot from all the baking, I'd decided to grill some chicken for dinner...I marinate the chicken (breast part of the chicken) with salt and pepper, stuffed some chilli sambal and onions and wrapped in aluminium foil before grilling for about 20 minutes on highest temperature (250 C) in my oven...yummy!


  1. The pudding looks truly stellar. It is really gorgeous. I also love the Japanese cheesecake. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  2. nice cake and nice blog.. have a view of my blog when free.. .. do leave me some comment / guide if can.. if interested can follow my blog...

  3. Wow, that first cake is amazing. It looks so much time went into it. It is truly gorgeous!

  4. What a happy accident with the kuih lapis! When I was in school many years ago, we used to call this 'selipar Jepun' because it resembled those rubber slippers with the many colourful layers.

  5. Oh, you really did make full used of your weekend, don't you? Absolutely fantastic! I'm sure your boys enjoyed the food you made for them!
    Have a great day!
    Cheers, kristy

  6. @Mary.. thanks! You have a nice day too! Mine is ending and will be going to bed soon.

    @Mr Lonely...thanks for dropping by:)

    @Stacy...thanks! yes took me a couple of hours to get it done but it's worth it!

    @Marty...your "selipar Jepun" must be platform styled huh? lol! Those were in fashion once upon a time.

    @Kristy...How's your finger? Ok already? Amazing you can still dish out such nice food for your family with such a deep cut.
    To tell you the truth, my boys do not like the cakes that I'd baked...they do not like sweet stuff, sigh!

  7. Jeannie, nice layered pudding and the cake looks so fluffy...yummie :-)

  8. Everything looks very delicious. Your 9 layer kuih looks perfect! I usually make 3 or 4 layers only because I'm very impatient...haha

  9. Looks fantastic and very very tempting!! Lot of hard work involved.

  10. so pretty and unique but a bit intimidating, I wish there's a malaysian place close by where I can sample this sweet

  11. @Mary...No matter how many layers, it doesn't matter as long as tasty ya:D

    @Padhu....thanks for visiting. The method for making the pudding is pretty simple, just need lots of patience and time!

    @Momgatgeway...thanks for visiting too! Try to make your own when you have the time, then you can sample the fruit of your labour:D

  12. Those cakes look so pretty!!

  13. Wow, the 9-layer pudding is so pretty and very cool!

  14. Wow,I love evrything that you prepared..your japanese cake and layered pudding is so beautiful, we call it (kuih) sapin-sapin in Filipino, almost the same ingredients, just different colors, ours come in 4 layers ( white, purple, yellow and red) and flavors..:)

  15. @Sook...Thanks:D

    @5StarFoodie.....Thanks, Natasha:D

    @Olive...Thanks, for our kuih, the colours are added according to our fancy, no particular reason to stick to specific colour codes.
