KEK KELADI KAK YAP

The Yam Cake (pix by Asma)

Today for buka puasa I made a Yam Cake. A favourite of dear hubby. Yam Cake ni actually is famous among the Chinese. It's a chinese dish. Anyway, this particular recipe was by a very dear family friend whom I called Kak Yap.
When I was still in my secondary school, Kak Yap ni was our next door neighbour for a couple of months. She was nurse at Pusat Kesihatan Kampar. When she moved to the hospital quarters not far away, she still datang over our place after work. She cycled over almost everyday. She would cook for us, most of the time. So we learned quite a few Chinese recipe (especially my sister as I was still very young so lebih kepada makan lar).
Even during puasa pun she will come and cook for us like this particular Yam cake. She would join us for buka puasa and when we did our Maghrib prayers, she would sit by watching us. Then we had dinner. Lepas tu we buat session mengaji Al-Quran. After that dia pulang. For many, having a Chinese girl over even for buka puasa every day, let alone cooking for us, would be considered odd but really to us it was nothing.
Then she got married and moved away and we lost contact. Too bad... but now looking back at those days, I simply love being a Malaysian. What a feeling!
Anyway, here I'm sharing you the recipe. Sedap ooooo....
