Steamed Wheat Cream Cracker

I bought a tin Julie's Wheat Crackers from one hypermarket. It was sold so much cheaper than it usual price. I was so happy and I thought that I was so lucky to spot it. After reaching home, my 11 years old daughter, April reminded me to check at the biscuit's expiry date.  I was surprised to learn that it could last for less than 10 days. OMG! How am I supposed to finish these crackers in 10 days. I may need to eat these crackers as breakfast, lunch and tea time in order to finish them in 10 days. If I could really finish 700g crackers in 10 days, I would sure put on 7kg by then. Is no joke!

Luckily, I converted the wheat crackers into something else that could be shared easily with friends. I blended wheat crackers into crumbs to use it as one important ingredient in my bake.
I steamed wheat crackers layered cake.

I made cream crackers layered cake a few times previously

However, this is my first time using wheat crackers.

Overall, it tastes better, just that the texture is a bit harder.

I packed some to office to share with my colleagues. I also gave some to my gym buddy. It still tasted good after keeping for a few days, but it needed to be steamed again before eating.
