I came home from work last evening to find my nephew and niece at my house waiting for me to go for dinner . You know how it feels when you have last minute guest visiting you. heehee...... . After dinner we were having tea at the dining table while I finish up my last post , I heard some stomach growling sound coming out from Aaron's direction . lol...... I smile at him and walk straight to my kitchen and started preparing my super fast QUICK TASTY BREAD PIZZA for him ..

After eating the bread pizza, here come Justin, my eldest son asking for cake. OMG, he can really eat ...lol. So I decided to try this steam butter cake , which I have been tempted to try some time ago. 

To my surprise, Justin love this cake as much as normal oven bake butter cake. I added some mixed peel and raisin which added extra flavour to the cake. 


145g    Butter 
140g    Sugar ( I dun like it too sweet / Original recipe cal for 150 g ) 
3          Eggs 
165g    Self Raising Flour 
2tsp     Double Action Baking Powder
112g    Evaporated Milk 
1tsp     Vanilla Essence 

  • Preheat steamer . Sift flour and double action baking powder . 
  • Cream Butter and sugar till light and fluffy .
  • Beat in egg one at a time until all well combined.
  • Add in Vanilla Essence and mix well
  • Fold in flour and milk alternately until well combine ( should start and end with flour ) 
  • Do not over mix. 
  • Pour batter into 8" round pan. Cover with aluminium foil.
  • Steam over high heat for 1 1/2 hour or until skewer comes out clean 

Tips : 

I added 1 tsp of mixed peel and 1 tsp of raisin to the plain batter . I used a 9" pan and steam the cake for 45 minutes. I am lucky when I tested the cake the skewer comes out clean ;) . Scoop out 1/3 of the batter and add in 2 tsp cocoa powder and 1/2 tsp chocolate emulco. Mix well.  Pour half of the plain batter into the pan . Then pour in the chocolate batter continue with the rest of the plain batter. Use a sharp knife and swirl around the batter .
