Steamed Butter Cake

I've been wanting to try bake Butter Cake.

I've collected a couple of recipes which I thought may give me something to my liking.  Then I found this one, which requires steaming instead of baking. Sounds interesting. I tried it yesterday. Result: Soft, tender crumbs and really moist. It doesn't have the usual crusty top, but the texture of the cake is so good that I really overlooked that bit.


You'll need:

8" Round/square tin, greased and lined and lightly greased and floured.

Prepare steamer.
  • 4 eggs
  • 125gm castor sugar
  • 220gm butter
  • 190gm superfine flour (I used cake flour)
  • 2 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/2 tablespoon ovalette


  1. Beat eggs, sugar and ovalette till fluffy and thick.
  2. Sieve flour into egg mixture and fold in well.
  3. In another bowl, beat butter and condensed milk till well mixed.
  4. Add in the butter mixture (bit by bit) to the egg mixture and mix well.
  5. Pour batter, cover pan with alluminium foil and steam for 1 hour.


Before steaming >> To make the patterns on top, take 2 tablespoons of batter and mix with 1 teaspoon of chocolate emulco. Mix well. Place in a piping bag. After pouring batter into the cake tin, pipe out lines on the batter. Use a wooden skewer to run through to make patterns.

You may halve the recipe to make a small 5" cake :)
