Steamed Cake #01

This is my latest collection "Magic Steamed Cake" by Alex Goh! :D There are couples of interesting recipe which I would like to try out :D Just do not feel like using the oven therefore now crazy over steamed cakes! >o<....

The first steamed cake in this recipe book I've try out is Chicken Cheese Cake. No need electric mixer, just a handwhisk will do :D No complicated steps, just need to fry the savoury chicken mixture, cool down before mixing in the cake batter. One thing to take note is that the steamer must be ready before the cake batter is done. Same theory as oven which must be preheated before putting in the cake pan :D

But after happily putting in the pan in the steamer, then realised I've forgotten to add the cheese!! >slap head<....really become Chicken Cake 鸡蛋糕 instead of Chicken Cheese Cake!...Nevertheless this savoury cake still taste good, soft & fluffy and no wierd after taste.

Chicken Cheese Cake

  • 50gm diced onions
  • 100gm diced chicken
  • 80gm diced carrots
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
