Apam Polka Dot

Apam Polka Dot

Last week coming back from tuition class, Sofea told me that her tuition teacher has to move soon.

Sofea : Umi, do we have any apartment to rent?

Me: What? What do you mean by “apartment to rent”? Do you want to rephrase your question?

Sofea: Is there any empty apartment at our building?

Me: Nope! But you can ask someone to vacant the apartment he he he… (jokingly)

Sofea: Can we???? Pleaseeeee… I want Mrs.Nicholson to live in our apartment. It will be so cool! You don’t have to sent me to tuition anymore, I can just walk up….pleaseeee.

Crazy girl! She thinks that we can just kick someone out just to accommodate her teacher…. macamlah apartment ni kita punya! You see…. Sofea is crazy about Mrs. Nicholson, she was her class teacher when she was in Year3….and surprisingly, Mrs Nicholson also adores her. She always have nice thing to say about Sofea. Sofea was so lucky to have her when she  first started her school back in 2008… Mrs Nicholson does bring the best in Sofea. Thank you Ma’am.

Moving on… I made this apam polkadot for a birthday party last Saturday, took the recipe from Hana’s Family. My apam polkadot turned out not as pretty as the Hana’s apam but I’m glad I made it. The apam was soft and delicious and my kids just love it. This recipe yield about 50 – 60 small apam and they were gone by night time. Will definitely be making it soon. Here is the recipe….


  • 3 eggs from the fridge
  • 275g flour
  • 220g sugar
  • 150g fresh milk
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ovallete
  • Blueberry filling – put in piping bag
  • Colouring
  1. Mix all ingredient except blueberry filling and coloring in a bowl. Mix at high speed for 6 – 8 minutes.
  2. Divide the batter into few portions and color them to your liking.
  3. Pour each colored batter into a pipping bag.
  4. Pipe the batter into to paper cup 1/2 full.  Pipe the filling and then fill the cup with batter till 3/4 full. Now you can make a polka dot using different color.
  5. Steam for about 5 – 10 minutes. Duration of steaming will depend on the size of your paper cup. (I used a small paper cup)

    • Nor Anizan, selalunya bila kita masukkan ovallete and pukul sampai aduanan nampak putih dan gebu, insyaallah ia akan menghasilkan apam yg lembut. Fungsi ovallete ialah utk melembutkan kuih.
