Steamed Moist Chocolate Cake

Today was Little Bear Ee Sync's last schooling day for the semester, and as usual they had a class party which lasted for about 2 hours. I was not sure of whether to make these or not...(I was thinking maybe jelly is enough) but on my last thought: since he likes this so much, don't bother whether it is suitable or not lah.



This is not the 1st attempt actually, the 1st time i used 2inch muffin cups(or 2 1/2 inch) in diameter.  This time smaller cups--only about 1 inch in diameter...and this made it easier for ES to eat them, He ate so many pieces, and even before I could count actually how many pieces I've made!   But oh, it is not me who made it so yummy, It's the recipe....It's failure-proof ! So easy...nobody would know that actually my batter was lumpy.   :P            Ah yes...I forgot to mention: I really hated scooping the batter into the mini  cups...so tedious!
The recipe?  I got it from here...but later i found out there's another blog with the similar recipe...Looks like everybody is sharing good recipes!   :)     (Ju, here it is:)

Steamed moist chocolate cake


(A) 180 g butter, 160g caster sugar, 200 g full cream evaporated milk, 1/2tsp vanilla extract & 2tbsp of rum (optional)
(B) 2 eggs, slightly beaten with fork.
(C) 100 g plain flour, 50 g cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda.

1. Combine (A) in a saucepan. Stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved and butter is melted, turn off the fire and keep warm.

2. Add (B) into (1) and stir till well mix.

3. Sift (C) into a large mixing bowl, then pour the eggs mixture (2) over the flour and stir till well mix (cake batter should be runny).

4. Heat up the steamer.

5. Lined 8 inch round baking pan. (I just scoop into muffin cups...lazy)

6. Pour the batter into the lined pan and place the pan into the steamer.

7. Cover the top of the pan loosely with a piece of aluminium foil.

8. Steam over medium heat for 45 mins.(Mine's done in 10-15 mins)

9. Cool the cake in pan before turning out for further decoration.





Wanna see some ugly cup-cakes? Towards the end, I was too lazy to fill another cup so these were full tho the brim...Ugh!! Hideous!

I've never tried steamed cupcakes before, only baked ones. I also need to look into caster sugar. The recipe is really simple. My girls would definitely love these because they love anything cupcakes.
