Hi,
I have baked this cake 4 times and each time I get thumbs up for it. Quite unfair isn't it that I get the credit, but I always tell them that I got it from a lady in the KC forum who is called Dralion.

So Dralion, I thanked you once before and I want to thank you again for sharing this fantastic recipe.

You wouldn't believe it but when hubby celebrated his birthday, I made this and everyone loved it.

This recipe is a keeper.

Hi Kwf,
may I know how you add in the banana into the cake? During steaming or afterwards? Thanks!

I made this cake today. There are a lot of holes on the surface of my cake despite the losely covered alum foil. My I know what has gone wrong? And, I used half recipe for 9 in round tin, my cake came out quite short (less than 2 inches). Is this normal? My cake is very dark, is it because of the cocoa powder that I used?

Thanks.

Thanks all for the kind words. island

Hee....actually the real cake looks kind of messy lor ..with the coating over flowing like lava....ke..ke... I also encounter problem coating the side of the cake since I sliced and placed whipped cream as the filling. Lucky I got the almond flakes to cover up. grin

Thanks Dralion for the recipes.

i'm new here... Smile island

tried this for the 1st time today after reading all 15 pages of comments and i'm really very happy with this cake!! Smile

i accidently added double the baking soda and baking powder coz i forgot to half those... arghhh... and my cake rised to 3 times it's original volume!! *horrified!!*

thou the top has erupted like the traditional "fa gao", the taste was nothing short of fantastic!!! in fact, my mum says it was the best cake i've ever made... hahaha... (she wasn't too optimistic coz she didn't believe something non-beaten could result in a fluffy cake... hahah..)

oh yah... i ran out of evaporated milk so i substituded half with full cream milk... plus made a few tweaks here and there... so i was really relieved the cake came out soooo well!!

tks to dralion!!! i'm so excited to try out other recipes now!! grin

Hi, just wanna know if anyone baked this bain marie i.e. in a waterbath like in japanese cheesecake? If so, what temperature should i bake it at? I don't have a large enough steamer or wok.

i do bake this cake in the oven (without using water bath)...i set temperature at around 165-170deg...i can't tell the exact timing...but i'd test the cake at regular intervals. even by baking in oven...the texture of the cake is still very moist...just don't over-bake the cake.

Hi I would like to try this out as a surprise for my mum. May I know which topping is the best so far?

If I want to divide the portion into 2, i.e make 2 cakes, which baking tray should I use?

Any info is greatly appreciated!

Hi Little Princess,

I usually steam 2 cakes out of this recipe and each on a 7" pan. I have only used ganache everytime i do this cake and it is great.
