Traditional Kueh: Steam Chocolate Egg Cake

Steam Egg Cake or as I used to call them in Hokkien "Kueh Nerng Kor" was one of my favourite childhood snacks if compare to the "Huat Kueh (Prosperity Cake)". I remembered being extremely happy whenever there was a festival. Sometimes my mum steamed these Steamed Egg Cake as prayer offerings. I would only aiming the airy and soft egg cake after praying.

I improvised the traditional normal egg cake with some chocolate chip and cocoa powder into super healthy steam chocolate egg cake. Here is my own recipe.

Ingredients (this recipe yields 4 small cupcakes size)

  1. ½ cup flour
  2. 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  3. 1 tsp baking powder
  4. 1 egg
  5. 3 Tbsp milk
  6. 2 Tbsp sugar
  7. 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  8. 2 Tbsp chocolate chips

1) Mix & sieve flour, cocoa powder and baking powder.
2) Beat egg with sugar.
3) Add on mil, oil and 1.
4) Put all the chocolate chips and mix well.
5) Steam it for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and cold it.

I am submitting for Aspiring Bakers #12: Traditional Kueh (October 2011), hosted by Small Small Baker.

How to make sure the skin is smooth like you cake, cos I tried the other day, it was lumpy on the top but the texture was soft & nice.

@ Teresa: Once you've steamed your cake, do not cover. Leave the steam away.
