Apam Polka Dot Recipe...


Assalamualaikum and Salam Sejahtera...

Who doesn't love polka dots....


Ever since I tasted the Apam Polka-Dots that my sister's friend,, Aina's mom made, I have been intrigued and wanted to try to make. 

RM1 per packet.. Reasonable price,,am I right??? It taste,,yummy... Fantastic!!!

So, I surfed the net for its recipe. Most sites displayed the same recipe so credit to all the sites that posted a recipe that works. Finally choose Dhiera 's recipe from http://dhieranottie.blogspot.com

Not me made all this Apam Polka Dots... But my mom.. I just helping her out..hehehehehe


Sharing the recipe:

3 cups All Purpose Flour.
2 cups Castor Sugar.
1 1/2 cups - Low Fat Milk (Ideal Milk or I used Dutch Lady's low fat milk)
3 teaspoons of baking powder.
1 teaspoon of ovalette.
Few drops of vanilla essence.
3 Eggs - Chilled

Filling:
 Of your choice - strawberry, nutella or it can just be plain apam but I used blackcurrant with rasberry flavour...

Colouring: 
Of your choice... 

Method:

1) Mix flour, sugar, eggs, baking powder, ovalette, milk and vanila essence in a bowl using a mixer, at maximum speed, until fluffy (Trust me, it will fluff alright..!)

2) Divide the batter into few portions (number of portions depend on the number of colours you have). In my case, two colours are fine . Add in a few drops of colour in the batter

3) Using a piping bag, pipe the batter into paper cups/mould until half full. Or, if you don't have piping bag, you can use normal clean drinking plastic bags nipped at one corner.

4) Fill the cups half way and put the filling in the center and top-up the cups with batter until 2/3 full. But if things got too messy, just spoon the batter into the paper cups/mould.

5) Then do the dots.

6) Finally, steam for 10-15 minutes.

Note:The choice of what color to use for the apam and its dots is entirely up to you.
And of course, not necessarily dots. I saw pictures of apams with smiley faces and names written on them.

Some sites that I refer to gave these tips: When steaming the apam, use medium heat. Or else the apam will crack in the centre. .
 Just like this :-
Just a Sample only...

  
To my beloved mom....here's product of the end of this recipe...

It terms of looks,,  not too cute because why the Polka Dots of the apam is too big like a giant...hahaha.. But in the terms of taste...."Mom,, I love you so much.. It taste,, not bad but I can say,, it so sedap... Yummy gitu...!!"
