Easy Gula Melaka Steamed Cake aka Ma Lai Gao recipe - This recipe is without butter. It's soft, fragrant and super easy to prepare. Taste really good, ideal for breakfast or snacks anytime.

Love the round top and beautiful colour of these steamed cakes. It can be served plain or decorated into cute little bear cupcakes. 

That's how it looks when steamed in a paper cup.
