Or-teng-kueh or Black Sugar Kueh is a type of huat kueh that uses black sugar and is one of 5th Aunt’s specialty. I’ve learned to make it, but my result is not always consistent.
The batch that I made impromtu on the eve of Chinese New Year turned out to be quite nice. I actually got Huey Gok, our newly wedded sister-in-law, to make the second batch and they turned out good too. Welcome to the family, Huey Gok.
150g black sugar
300g plain flour
1 cup water (medium hot)
1 teaspoon soda bicarbonate
The joy of making this huat kueh is seeing them blossom right in front of your eyes when you steam it, so, use a glass cover if you have one.
Verdict : Family favourite … need I say more?
