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!

Meanwhile make the frosting…

pour in frosting once the cake has completely cooled. Enjoy! Have a great weekend!! 🙂
Steamed Chocolate Cake
- Line and grease a 8 or 9 inch baking pan and set aside.
- Melt butter in a saucepan, add oil, evaporated milk and sugar.
- Stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved.
- Take off fire and slightly cool, add the beaten eggs and stir until well mixed.
- Heat up the steamer.
- Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda into a large mixing bowl.
- Fold flour mixture into the egg mixture. (or the other way around, it doesn't make any difference)
- Mix well until there are no more lumps.
- Pour into the prepared pan and place into the steamer and cover the top of the pan loosely with a piece of aluminium foil.
- Steam over medium heat for 45 mins.
- Cool the cake for about 10 minutes in the pan before turning out onto a wire rack.
- Completely cool before adding your favorite frosting.
- 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.
