In my younger days, my grandma used to buy this type of cake for me. We call it "Keh Nooi Ko" in hokkien, it's a simple cake, cottony soft and light. Not too oily and not too sweet. I'm so happy when I see something similar in Fad About Food, I want to thank Constance for sharing the recipe of this unique cake in her blog. Although this is not the exact "Keh Nooi Ko" but I just love the aroma of eggs in this cake. It reminds me of my childhood days, the time when I was running bare foot, playing glass marbles, playing the jumping strings made from rubber bands with a group of friends. This cake are best to eat along with a cup of hot chocolate or coffee. Yumm...! ☻
