Colourful Nonya Cakes - WW

colourful Nonya cakes

Whenever I have guests coming to visit me at home, I would buy some traditional Nonya cakes to serve them. It is too tedious and time consuming to make these cakes myself.
*Excuses, I'm actually too lazy :P*

peeling it layer by layer....

Guests who are seeing the colourful 9-layer cake (九层糕) for the first time are usually very fascinated with my way of eating. Like a young child, I would eat it layer by layer.... carefully peeling each layer before placing it in my mouth. hehe....

  1. This was how I used to eat it too when I was young, layer by layer and if I am given one now, I will still eat it layer by layer. :)

  8. It is rather hard to make the cake 'peel-able'
    Sometimes, we ended up with cakes which had the layers stuck together

  18. Argh! Nonya kueh! Wife and I love them to bits. There's only one restaurant over here that has them and it cost £2 for 3 tiny morsel. Pathetic? Very.

  19. Wow, I have never seen these before. The color is incredible. Time consuming for sure.

  20. I'd like to know what they are made from and how they are made. i love to bake and looks like something which would be fun to try. I imagine a little cornstarch sprinkled between layers would help them not to stick... but then I have no idea how they are made and if that would be appropriate. Happy WW

  29. They look too pretty to eat. But they remind me of some coconut treats I saw recently. I wish I had bought them!

  30. Nonya cakes remind me of a local rice cake called Sapin-sapin. They look similar, it's also layered with different colors and we top it with grated coconut. Yum!
