PURPLE SWEET POTATO RICE CAKE [HUAT KUIH] 紫薯发糕

I have seen this lovely huat kuih recipe [prosperity cake] [here] and made some recently.  
The steamed cake rose and cracked nicely.  They are soft, moist and light even on the next day.  The sweetness is just nice for me with the reduced amount of sugar used.
If you like to try a huat kuih recipe using yeast, this one is easy to prepare.
Recipe adapted from Amiliaya Recipe [modified]
Ingredients
[makes about 20 small huat kuihs]
50 gm purple sweet potato [ 紫薯]
210 ml water []
180 gm rice flour [粘米粉]
75 gm sugar [] - I used 60 gm
1 tsp yeast [酵母]
1 tsp baking powder [ 泡打粉]
  1. Steam purple sweet potatoes until soft [about 20-30 minutes].  Blend steamed sweet potatoes with water.  Pour into a big mixing bowl.
  2. Mix and combine blended mixture with rice flour, sugar and yeast.  Cover bowl and let it rise for about 2 1/2 hours.
