Steaming with Alex Goh again :D Yeah!!! This morning my friends, Connie & Maggie came .. they tried my Steam Gula Melaka Cupcake! Happy with thier comments.. TQ my dear ji mui :D hehe..

Maggie & I dicided to make this Steamed Marble Butter Cake. Wow... It turns out great :D

The texture is exactly the same as baked cakes :D Too much chocolate batter on top... hahaaa... can't see the marble effets. hehe :D

280g butter
200g sugar ( reduced )

4 eggs

300g flour
2 1/2 tsps double action baking powder

1/2 tbsp chocolate paste (** I used 1 tbsp chocolate powder + 3 tbsps hot water**)

Method :

1. Lightly grease & line 20cm round or square mould.
2. Beat A until light & fluffy. Add in B slowly, cream until smooth & light.
3. Add in sieved C, mix until well-blended.
4. Take 1/4 portion of the batter, mix with D until well-blended.
5. Pour plain batter into greased mould. Use a teaspoon to spoon the chocolate batter over the plain batter & swirl it to make marble effects.
6. Steam at high heat for 10 minutes, switch the heat to low & steam for another 60 minutes.
7. Leave the cake aside for 5 minutes before moving out from the mould.

  9. Hi! Like your marble butter cake very much! Have a few questions and hope you can advise.
    A) Did you fold in your flour?
    B) Can I use cake flour instead?
    C) I can't find chocolate powder, can I replace it with cocoa powder instead?


  10. Hi Tzee Muai Meng, welcome to my blog :-) Tq for your compliment.
    A) at 1st, I pour in the flour & mix with mixer until 80%, then I use hand to fold till well-blended.
    B) yes, u can use cake flour.
    C) yes, u can replace with cocoa powder.

    Hope my info can help :-)

  11. when steaming is it ok to cover the cake tray with a foil, otherwise water drops from the lid falls in to the cake

  12. Hi.... So sorry for the late reply. I' m so busy from the year end holidays & really no time to view my blog. I think you better don't cover the cake tray while steaming, later the cake no space to expand. Don't worry, water won't drip from the lid, but must becareful while opening . Or else you can try to steam with bamboo steamer. It's safer.
