I Baked a Cake

Recently, mummy's old buddy, Auntie BS, gave her steamed chocolate cake recipe. Knowing very well that mummy can't bake and has never been successful in her attempts to bake a decent cake, she gave her a very simple, fool-proof recipe. It's so simple and infallible that even a 5.5 year old like me can do it!

Making this for the second time today, I felt like a pro already hehe...

I've washed my hands, I've put on my apron, I'm all ready to start work!

Believe it or not, I did this all by myself! Well, almost. I was under mummy's supervision and of course, the steaming part was done by her because I am not ready to handle a pot of boiling water yet.

Sift the flour

Sift the cocoa powder

Add sugar

Crack in an egg

"Pump" 3 spoons of milk
Combine everything together and mix well... add in some chocolate chips

Wait... *tick tock tick tock*  the cake needs to be steamed for 15 minutes

Tada! Steamed chocolate cake... I made one :) It's very moist and we love it very much! Since it is a mini loaf, it's just nice for the 3 of us.

Ooh, smells very good and tastes even better!

1 piece is not enough... indulging in my 2nd piece!

Here is the recipe if you would like to try it:

1-Egg Chocolate Cake* 

Dry ingredient: 4 tbsp self-raising flour
                        2 tbsp cocoa powder
                        1 tsp baking powder

Wet ingredient: 3 tbsp milk
                         3 tbsp cooking oil / melted butter
                         5 tbsp sugar (mummy reduced to 2 because she added chocolate chips)
                         1 egg
                         1/2 tsp vanilla essence
                         3 tbsp chocolate chips (optional)

Sift all the dry ingredients and put aside. Put all the wet ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Add in the dry ingredients and mix well. Add in chocolate chips. Pour batter into a mini loaf pan. Pre-boil a pot with just enough water for steaming. When the water comes to a boil, place the mini loaf pan into the pot and steam for approximately 15 minutes. 

It's just as simple as this

*This recipe requires a mini loaf pan
