Bolu kukus pelangi (Rainbow steamed cake)



I couldn't stop my self to eat this cake, from the beginning i knew this cake i love it so much, 1 piece is not enough.

Last week i found a bigger bamboo steamer, originally i only have small steamer (which impossible to make any steam cake on the tin), so from that day i was excited to try any kind of steam cake, its not the huge one but i have 1 round tin that fit in the new steamer.

I think this cake is healthier too, they not contain butter at all,but so yummy...!!, good with a cup of tea.
Note: only patience people will be successful making this cake, the more variety colour you add, the more time consumed.

Have a good weekend everyone, and don't forget to try this cake...

Thanks Mas Budi sutomo for the recipe.
