Steamed Moist Chocolate Cake


I love chocolate cakes, especially the really moist, fudgy rich ones. They are simply irresistible. I have to thank Anita, or Lady Vanilla for sharing this recipe at Cuisine Asia. This recipe has been a hot discussion topic at the MCDC forum so I couldn't help but to start participating in the steaming too.

As expected for all steamed cake, texture of this cake was soft and moist. The softness basically lasts for 3 days although I doubt this cake can ever take that long to disappear from your dining area. The only modification I made to the original recipe was the amount of sugar which was reduced to 180g. I may cut another 10g in my future attempt.

Love,

Looks gorgeous! I have yet to try the steamed chocolate cake. Since steaming is more troublesome than baking to me.

Hi chezzyheart,
I didn't attempt the fudge so sugar was reduced on the cake side.

Hi,

Wow this looks great! :) Just wondering - if we want to make this into cupcakes, how do we do it? Do the cupcakes "melt" whilst it is steaming? Thanks! :)
