Steamed Sponge Cake

My dread feeling strike every time when I failed to control the oven temperature; it is such a disappointing moment seeing the cake turned dark that deterred me from frequent baking.

Therefore, I now prefer the simpler method - steaming. My two attempts with the recipe turned out quite satisfactorily…but maybe because I did not use cake flour, the texture was not that spongy. I would say it is like “Ma Lai Gao”.

Me and my family love it, and thank my friend Chui Lee for the recipe.

nice..what about the recipe?

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Agreed with you. Steamed cake is much healthier than baked cake. Furthermore, the recipe uses corn oil instead of butter, more healthier:-)

Hui Li:
Hehe, definitely love the healthier version of cake:-)

Here's the recipe:

Steamed Sponge Cake
Ingredients A:
5 eggs
140g sugar (I only put 70g)
140g brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt

Ingredients B:
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 tsp baking soda
120g evaporated milk (can replace by HL or full cream milk)

Ingredients C:
260g plain flour (or cake flour)
1 tbsp baking powder

Ingredients D:
80g corn oil

1. Whip Ingredients A until sugar dissolves and has slightly thickened. Add in Ingredients B, mix until well-blended.
2. Add in sieved Ingredients C, mix until well-blended. Add in Ingredients D, mix until well-blended.
3. Pour it onto a greased and lined 20cm square mould. (The one I gave you actually is using a normal size rice bowl).
4. Put into steamer and steam for 35 minutes. (You may need to adjust the steam time depends to your mould size.)

Happy Baking Wenn.

The texture of the cake is nice in deed....I havent tried any steamed spongecake before yet...

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Thanks Ummi for the comment.
Actually I preferred a softer texture than mine one, hehe. Anyway, I am happy with the outcome too:-)
- For me, steaming is so much easier than baking. And them chances of me eating the cake is higher than baking method:-)
