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! 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!

  • 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.


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.
