My dh's favourite childhood cake is the steamed sponge cake. I've finally found the ideal recipe to make a consistent steam sponge cake. Here's sharing the one I made yesterday.
250 gm top flour
250 gm caster sugar
2 tbsp milk powder
6 large eggs
60 gm corn oil
Sift flour and milk powder together.
Beat the eggs and sugar together till light pale in color and the ribbon stage. (If you lift the beaters up and do a figure of eight on the batter, the figure of 8 must be visible for about 3 secs. before disappearing).
Gradually fold in the flour mixture and oil and batter till well mix using a spatula.
Pour batter into a 8" square baking pan lined with greaseproof paper.
Cover the top with aluminium foil.
Steam on high heat for 30 mins and check if skewer comes out clean.
If not steam for another 5 to 10 mins.
