50 gm Corn flour,sift togeter with the cocoa powder
1 tsp (level) Nescafe

Mix all ingredints well (except the butter), stir over double boiler (at low heat) till thicken(like custard consistancy).
Add in butter,off fire and stir till butter melted.

after steaming for about 1 1/2 hour at medium heat/fire (for the whole recipe),touch the surface of the cake....if sticky then that means not cook yet (normally the side will cook first...)alternatively just use a satay stick to test...

for muffins/cupcakes you just need to steam for about 15 to 20 minutes only...remember dont steam at high fire/heat coz your cakes surface will crack open...but dont worry lah when it cooled down it will close back ...

i normally steamed at medium-high heat ....if the heat/fire is too high your cake will cooked faster and the surface of the cake will crack open and also will become dry ...

Tips :
Steam the cake at medium-high fire/heat
Use good kuality cocoa powder (i used Drost dark unsweeted cocoa powder)
Cool the cake and cut into 2 layers,sandwish the cake with the Chocolate Fudge topping(cook the chocolate fudge till real "thicken", then chill it before speading on cake)
For more moist result use corn oil or sunflower oil,melted butter give more butterly taste (personal taste bud thought.... :roll: )


Sorry, can muffin tins be used for steaming?

If steaming using muffin tin, do I still need to cover it with aluminium foil?

I intend to make this for dd's bday celebration in school. Is the original recipe enough for 20 children and 5 - 6 adults for tea?

If not, assuming I up the recipe by 1.5x or 2X, can I split them into 2 trays and steam 1 tray at a time? I mean, while 1 tray is steaming, the other tray needs to wait for at least 1 hour, will the batter turn bad since there's egg in it?

I'm also toying with the idea of steaming in paper cases, not paper cups as I've tried steaming once with these cups and the sides all open up. However, my paper cases are not those lined with the shining coating inside, if you know what I mean. Will the cake stick onto the paper?

I made them in mini muffin cups, steam in 3 batches @ 10 mins each. Covered the whole lot with aluminium foil as I do not want the steam vapour to drip onto the cake. Also, the last time I steam some cakes in those lined muffin paper cups, the cup "torn" open up, I suspect it's the steam vapour. This time round, with the foil, they don't open up grin However, the cake didn't rise much even though I poured batter till 3/4 full. Taste wise, still soft and fluffy.

I am wondering, has anyone used this cake and frost like Black Forest Cake (cherries and syrup in between layers then cover with shipped cream)?

Dearest everyone, i finally baked this cake instead of steaming because couldn't find big enough steamer-baked 1/2 recipe in loaf pan(covered with foil) at 170 degrees for 55mins.I took off the foil after 45 mins cos the cake surface looked a bit wet.This recipe produced a beautifully moist cake. It was finished in 1 hour-didn't even have to ice the cake!Thanks Dralion for the excellent recipe-definitely a keeper!

maybe 2 days in an airtight container. Becos it is steamed, it gets mouldy faster than the baked ones.

I steam for 50 mins and was still uncooked...onli realised when I turned it over.

No choice, had to put into another mould and steam again.

But still 1 hr, its still too wet n unset.

Ended up putting it back into the fridge, see wat would become of it tomolo.

Duno izzit I added say 50g extra cocoa, coz abit more left in the jug?
