Steamed Chocolate Cake

I’ve seen this from other food/recipe bloggers before and I was amazed.. moist and soft chocolate cake without using an oven..wow! How I wish that I knew this way, way back..*sigh*.

This cake is really easy to make (of course it is or I would not have bothered) and expect a delicious cake at the end, you may use your favorite frosting to serve or simply dust it with powdered sugar on top or turn it into a beautifully decorated 2-layer cake, your call. I just want it simply with a fudge frosting..

I have a can of dulce de leche that is beginning to crystallized, I heated it up with some grated chocolate and just poured it on top of chocolate cake..yum!

  7. Steam over medium heat for 45 mins. Cool the cake for about 10 minutes in the pan before turning out onto a wire rack.

  9. Heat dulce de leche and chocolate in a double boiler or a heavy bottomed pan over low heat; when chocolate is completely melted, stir well and let cool before using.
Notes
The dulce de leche frosting is a bit runny and heavy at the same time like a soft fudge and forms a crust on top; not good for piping or decorations.
