hi Smile
just want to share this recipe with you guys here...
hope you all like it Razz




Steam moist chocolate cake

1 1/2 bar of butter (250 gm + 125 gm) OR Corn Oil **
2 cups of castor sugar
1 can of Evaporated Milk
4 Eggs,lightly beaten with a folk
2 cups of Plain flour ***
1 cup of Cocoa powder
1 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Baking soda

*** this recipe can be halve easily

Combine castor sugar,Evaporated milk,vanilla extract or essence and butter in a saucepan.
Stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved and butter is melted,off fire and
keep warm.
Add the beaten eggs into the slightly cold Evaporated 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).
Heat up the steamer.
Lined and greased a 9 inch baking pan or 2 9'inch sandwich pan.
Pour the batter into prepared pan and place the pans into the steamer and cover the top of the pan losely with a piece of aluminuim foil.
Steam over medium heat for 1 1/2 hour (45 mins for 1/2 recipe/ingredients).
Cold the cake in pan before turning out for further decoration.

Chocolate topping

1 can of Condence milk
1 tsp of Vanilla extract or 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
1/2 cup Corn oil
1/3 cup Cocoa powder,sifted
1/8 tsp Salt

1. Combine the sifted cocoa powder,condence milk and oil.

2. Stir over low heat till thicken (stirring all the time).

3. Add in salt and vanilla extract or essence.

4. Cold the chocolate topping a little before spreading on the cold cake.

Enjoy... Razz

NOTE :
** If using corn oil simply mix all ingredients up and stir till well blended.
*** With a metal spoon fluff up the flour in the bag,and lightly spoon it into the measuring cup while held over a sheet of waxed paper or the flour canister. Let the flour heap up and overflow. Do not TAP or SHAKE the cup to level it. When the flour is over the top,use the flat side of a knife or spatula to sweep off the excess flour so it is level with the top of the cup.

Kitchen

was thinking of steaming it in the MW for 5 mins. then can save Gas for 45 mins to 1.5 hours! Between regular wok/steamer steaming and MW steaming..the difference is so great. For MW, best to steam on High for 3 mins and 2 mins on Med High.

who wants to try first? today I work at home..yesterday was whole day out for meetings!

Haha, Gina, that's a good challenge, but I don't think I have time to bake anything till after 7 November. My boys will be on holiday from tomorrow onwards and I have programmes lined up for the whole of next week (they close 3 weeks earlier than most primary schools), so I don't need to bake for them till January next year (technically speaking)! Wink

I sound as if I am celebrating Deepavali or Hari Raya Puasa, right? Wink

baking doesn't need reason. take it as a challenge to learn something new. for me, I won't be eating it. Want to do it before 12:30pm as my dad will pick up the girls from school, sent them to my mom's place. i work at home, no one is at home so can concentrate on my work.

the cake will end up with my niece. She loves to eat sweet stuff. She's actually Fucsia(one of the members here at KC). now she doesn't login here anymore..back from Aussie to SG. no need to miss my food, just ring me for it Razz

will probably cut 1/4 of the cake to give neigbhour. coffee

this is a very large cake,cake in the picture is halve of the recipe,i steamed the cake in a 9 inch deep baking pan,you can also steam the cake into 2 9' inch sandwich pan,after that sandwich them with Chocolate topping.
This is a very moist and delicious cake,if you are a chocoholic you will love this cake.......

*** This Steam Chocolate Cake can also be steam as Cup Cakes
*** For a darker Choclate cake colour,can use a good kuality Cocoa powder or add 1 1/2 tsp Chocolate Paste/Emulco into the batter.

if its baked, it will not be moist. Baked cakes are often dry.

1 can of Evaporated Milk is 405g. Usually the can size is pretty standard.

hi,
mine one here is 410 gm per can(not in ml :roll: large can) i think yours there maybe 405 gm per can ........not very sure though... :roll:
Yes,you can also bake this cake...but i suggest "Steam bake"
Cakes that steamed is always moist then those baked one...give it a try Wink

*** this is a "dence and moist type" of chocolate cake,not like those light and fluffy kinds

If we halve the recipe, do we still use 9" cake pan?

I want to pass the recipe to my mom; her oven spoilt already...

Yes,for half of the ingredients you can use 9 inch or 8 1/2 inch baking pan and steam at medium heat for about 45 minutes (before steaming cover the top of the baking pan losely with a piece of aluminuim foil)

Made this cake over the weekend. As the baking pan that can fit into my steamer is small, I had quite a bit of left over batter which I baked into muffins. All I can say is that the steamed cake was moister which makes it taste better. Very yummy cake and was easy to make, a definite keeper in my recipe file.

Thanks Dralion.

Gina,
Did you use the MW to steam or stove? if MW, how long should it take?
Also if I do w/o the topping, will it taste as good ?

I had it MW. For 10 mins on MED-High(70%). Then another 5 mins on HIGH(100%)

I never taste it so can't tell you what is what.
