  • Once (A) is cooled, add the beaten eggs in and mix thoroughly. Finally, pour the eggy mixture into the flour and stir till well combined. The final batter should be runny.
  • Pour the batter into prepared pan and place it in the steamer. Cover the top of the pan loosely with a sheet of aluminium foil. Steam over medium heat for 45 minutes.
  • Just cover loosely with a sheet of foil to make sure that the top doesn't burn. Cool the cake in pan before turning out for further decoration.
  • Chocolate Fudge Topping (Optional):
    Combine the sifted cocoa powder, condensed milk and oil. Stir over low heat till the mixture thickens (keep stirring all the time). Add in salt and vanilla extract. Cool the chocolate mixture for a little while before spreading onto the cake.
