Steamed Lipton Tea Cake





















Few days after making a failed steamed cake,i managed to muster enough courage to steam another cake.This time a Lipton Tea Cake.Wasn't sure what went wrong for the first but i am glad this one came out perfect.I changed the type of tea used and used margarine instead as i ran out of butter.

Makes:
  • 20cm cake tin

You will need:

(A)
330g sponge mix flour/optima flour
4 eggs

(B)
2 sachets of lipton tea bag(or any other tea as desired.)
60g hot water

(C)
80g melted margarine/butter

The Preparation:
  1. Grease and line the tin.
  2. Cut open the sachets and mix with water,set aside to cool.
  3. Whisk (A) till pale and thick.
  4. Add 2. till well combined.
  5. Add (C) till well combined.

The Baking:
  1. Pour batter into tin.
  2. Steam for 40 minutes.
  3. Remove from steamer,unmould from tin and place on cooling rack.
  4. Served when cooled.

Tips:
  1. Wrap the steamer cover with a cloth before steaming to prevent water droplets from falling onto the cake when steaming.
  2. Do not oversteam.(i tried placing a piece back to the steamer and steam for another 5 minutes,it turned kueh like on top.)
