Steamed Cheddar Cheese Cake

I've done a few steamed cakes before and so far quite satisfied with the results :D Unlike steamed huat kueh, this steamed cake does not taste like 'kueh' at all! The mixing method is the same as like baking a normal butter cake, just that instead of baking it you steamed the cake that's all. I find that steamed cake usually taste lighter and less oilier compared to bake version.

Recipe adapted from 'Magic Steamed Cake' by Alex Goh
  • 3 eggs
  • 100gm sugar
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 125gm milk
  • 80gm unsalted butter
  • 220gm flour
  • 1 tbsp double action baking powder
  • 1/2 tbsp parmesan cheese

  1. Dissolve cheddar cheese, milk & butter over double boiler. Cool down slightly.
  2. With a electric whisk, beat eggs and sugar until thick & fluffy.
  3. Whisk in cheese mixture until well blended.
  4. Sift in flour and baking powder and fold till combined.
  5. Pour batter into a lined 8" round pan. Steam over preheated steamer on medium heat for 30mins. Cool down in pan for 10 mins before unmoulding. Cool completely on wire rack. Best serve within 3 days. Optional : At the last 5 mins of the steaming process, sprinkle some grated cheddar cheese over the top and continue the steaming.
