STEAM MOIST CHOCOLATE CAKE

I am never a big fan of any kind of chocolate . Probably because I am always on " diet mode" which restrict me from " liking " certain food. Anyway , whether I like or not , CHOCOLATE is gaining fans all over the world. 


I was sitting down by the dining table thinking what should i bake for my nephew , Andrew. He is one of my " loyal fans " that has never say " no" when it comes to trying my cooking and baking . heehee.....................  So I have decided on a " not too dry " chocolate cake considering the weather and all . Seems that STEAM MOIST CHOCOLATE CAKE will be the best choice for now.................






I have always love baking and cooking though I have not been lucky to enroll myself to any of the courses available no matter how much I would love to. I have to use my own skill and knowledge thru the web to try out each and every new recipe. As much as I try to avoid eating chocolate , I was amazed by the result of my" Steam Moist Chocolate Cake" . 






Please forgive me for not having very good photos /photography skills. I am only equipped with my BB Torch 9800 as my current camera . heehee..................   Again I was too excited to try out the cake , I have actually forgotten to capture a picture of the whole cake before cutting a slice and trying it. It is just simply irresistibly yummy even without topping . Since I bake this at 3.00 am,  I was too lazy to add any toppings . Well to my surprise , it turns out excellent even without extra glossy marvelous toppings......

185g       Butter ( or Corn Oil )
180g       Castor Sugar
200ml     Evaporated Milk ( 1/2 can )

  • Combine castor sugar, Evaporated milk, vanilla essence and butter in a saucepan. 
  • Stir constantly over low heat until sugar dissolved and butter melted, take away from heat and keep warm. 
  • Add the lightly beaten eggs into the warm milk mixture and stir till well mix. 
  • Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda into a large mixing bowl. Then pour the eggs mixture over the flour and stir till well mix (cake batter should be runny). 
  • Greased a 9 inch baking pan 
  • Pour the batter into prepared pan and place the pans into the Preheated steamer and cover the top of the pan loosely with a piece of aluminium foil. 
  • Steam over medium heat for 1 hour 15 minutes
