Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Dear all, Thanks for your lovely words, do try out this recipe, good one!

Tracie, I think you can substitute evaporated with fresh milk, you try out and let me know.

Yummy, you need to line the side and bottom of cake pan with parchment paper.

julie said...

Sonia
i try this one before
is very nice
i reduce the sugar because too sweet for me
the 2nd time i did but the cake came ugly
because the water went in the cake
so is cook the cake not steam the cake

i tried your receipe but reduce the sugar by 50gms, everyone likes it. My friends have been asking about the receipe, my husband request for another bake since all been eaten. i never thought baking a chocolate cake is such an easy task, thanks....

Betty said...

this looks great, a change to baking- steaming! :)

My family members love this moist chocolate so much especially my 2 little god daughters who simply could finished any amount of cake given to them. One problem I encountered with this steamed cake is the top of the cake always cracked open, why???

teo ai li said...

Hi Sonia, I baked this today. Everything turned out well. But I have one question : the top of my cake is rough like small honeycomb. Is this supposed to be like this or did I do anything wrong? May I also know does this cake rise to very high? Mine doesn't seem to be so don't know is it correct.

Thanks for your help!

teo ai li said...

Hi Sonia, I tried this cake again.....and the top of the cake still has the "honeycomb" effect. You think water droplets may have gone onto the cake when steaming? But I did cover the cake with aluminium foil.....do I cover with a plate? I took picture of it and would like to show you....where do I download it to to? can you please help me out? Thanks!

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Teo Ai Li , I think it is normal when the top look like honeycomb , you can see my picture also has the same effect . I have so long didn't attempt this recipe, can't remember much thought.

teo ai li said...

Thanks, Sonia! Will try to put a tent foil over the cake and see how. Appreciate your reply
