I wondered many times how a cake can be steamed..I tried many recipes and went wrong..This one i got through a site ( i dont remember it)...I did some changes in the recipe and it was yummy to have.The Shelf life of this cake is less,u must finish it in two days and u will do it.Because the cake is so moist, soft and yummy to have. Even though i dont like chocolate cake ,my husband loved it ,so my daughter too.The cake was over within a day.
I used an indian cooker without whistle...
Sugar-1+ 1/2 cup
Cocoa powder-1 cup
Unsalted Butter-1 cup
Instant Coffee Powder-3/4 tsp
Condensed Milk-1/2 cup
Vanilla Essence-1 tsp
Maida-1 + 1/4 cup
Baking Powder-1 tsp
Baking Soda-1 tsp
Mix A and Cook until the sugar melts(stir it nonstop)
Cool A completely
Add B to A and beat well
Sieve C for three -four times
Add C to A+B and fold them slowly and well mixed
Grease the baking pan with butter and flour
Pour the dough into the pan(only half level of the pan)
Place the pan in Indian cooker or Steamer (less water).
Make sure water cannot reach the baking pan.
Bake it for 40 mins in low flame
Check with knife if it is baked or not
If not,U can leave it some more mins(make sure u have enough water in the cooker)
Once it is baked,move it soon on wire rack to cool it down
