Zizzer-Zazzer Zu's Rainbow Steamed Cake

Finally I managed to sum up enough courage to attempt this recipe which I found in Zu's blog. This was because , after two bouts of making cheesecakes I had enough egg whites from 8 eggs to do this. I have no regrets cos it turned out to be a wonderfully smooth and soft cake. However, I did wish that I had taken more pains to do the layering a little thinner to achieve the "kueh lapis" effect. I halved the recipe cos I was using a 6 inch heart shape cake pan and there was still enough to make about ten "chew kueh" size ones.
Thanks to Zu for sharing this recipe cos now I know what I can do with my left-over egg whites.

Your little princess is right, looks great. Unfortunately I still haven't got the guts to attempt this. Great job.

Edith, thanks for dropping by. I was apprehensive at first but discovered that the batter was thick enough and so won't sort of "dissolve" into the next layer. Do have a go at it and you won't regret it.

Hi...how do you steam a cake??

The Asian way of steaming is to use a wok and a wok cover. If you don't have one, you can use a pot that's big enough to hold your cake container and a pot cover.
What I did was to fill half the wok with water and place a metal stand for the cake container to sit on. I boiled the water in the wok covered and when the water boiled I placed the container with the batter and covered it with a piece of aluminium foil before placing the wok cover over. In this way I steamed the cake for about half an hour or more depending on the size of your cake.
