Steamed Egg Cake


Do not confuse this with Huat Kueh or Steamed Rice Cake,they aren't the same.Steamed Egg Cake is what we call in Chinese,鸡蛋糕.They can be found in stalls selling kueh kueh,most of the time they are made yellow in colour with a red dot on the top.I will be sharing the basic recipe for the cake and also how to make them more interesting.Kids will love them for sure!

Basic Recipe

Makes:
  • 12 Pieces

You will need:
  • 275g plain flour
  • 200g sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 150ml milk
  • Food colouring

The Preparation:
  • Using an electric whisk,beat everything except food colouring till pale and thick.
  • Add food colouring.
  • Pour the batter into cupcake/muffin liner.*90% full

The Cooking:
  1. Boil the water in the steamer.
  2. Steam at high heat for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Remove and cool on rack.
  4. Serve.

Tips:
  • It is important to fill the liners till almost full to ensure they "smile".
  • Do not attempt to open the lid when steaming.
  • Place liners in aluminum liners or moulds to maintain cakes' shapes.
  • Use a toothpick to dip into colouring then to batter,repeat when necessary.


Steamed Egg Cakes with Design

Makes:
  • About 15 pieces

The Preparation:
Prepare the batter as above,except adding colouring.
Decide what design you wish to make.
For example:


Base:Pink Drawing:Pink,Green and Beige.
  • Add pink colouring to 1/2 of the batter,green colouring to 1/4 of the batter,the remaining 1/4 of the batter will remained untouched as it is originally beige in colour.
  • Transfer the green and beige batter into piping bags.
  • Fill the liners with the pink batter 50% full.
  • Pipe the designs.

The Cooking:
  1. Boil the water in the steamer.
  2. Steam at low heat for about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Remove and cool on rack.
  4. Serve.

 Tips:
  • Fill in batter slowly to avoid bubbles from surfacing.
  • Do not fill the liners too full as they will "smile",remember:you are aiming for a round smooth top.
  • Do not use high heat as this will cause the cake to rise too fast and result in "smiling".
  • Again,do not open the lid when steaming.
