Awfully chocolate cake using steamed method - by  Cynthia Neo
Very moist and soft cake!
Very happy with the result ...better than baked.

 This made a 6 x 6 inch square pan. You can always double the amount.
Cake ingredients :

  • 180g unsalted butter
  • 60g castor sugar (I reduced to 50g as I don't like sweet)
  • 60g brown sugar ( I reduced to 50g...The original total 120g of sugar is not overly sweet , don't worry)
  • 200g evaporated milk
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 100g flour
  • 50g cocoa powder 
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla or rum ( u can increase to 1 tbp for rum if u want)

  1. Prepare your steamer.
  2. Combine sugar, evaporated milk, vanilla or rum and butter in a saucepan
  3. Over low fire, stir until sugar dissolved and butter melted. Off fire and let it cool a bit. Whilst is warm, add beaten egg and mix well. Sift flour, cocoa, baking powder, soda and add into the mixture. Combine well. 
  4. Lined the baking tin pour the mixture in and cover with aluminum foil.
  5. Steam for 45 mins skewer comes out clean. 
  6. Cool the cake in the pan.

 Chocolate glaze ingredients :
  • 190g full cream condensed milk ( use lady general brand so that it won't be too runny )
  • 1 /2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup corn or canola oil
  • 1/6 cup of cocoa powder sifted ( half of 1/3 cup) 
  • Pinch of salt 
Method :
  1. Combine cocoa, milk and oil in a saucepan and stir over low fire. 
  2. Keep stirring until thicken 
  3. Add salt and vanilla 
  4. Cool the mixture a while before pouring over the cake .
  5. Smooth the glaze over the cake.
  6. Cool before adding decorations.
**please note that the cake will form a dome so I levelled it and flip it to the other side before glazing. Make it more presentable.
