我从来对蒸蛋糕没啥感兴趣。。说到蒸东西这玩意儿。。嘿。。别搞。。家里蒸锅被我烧坏了无数个。。 可当阿母在长腿美女家看到这帖子时,就马上要我给她做。。。(*¬*)。。。 七上八下的心情还是做了。。。 天助我也!成功成功。。。不费事的蛋糕🍰,就出炉了。。。好吃!👍!

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

IMG_6841– i baked my cake in a 6 inch square pan, and used only 135g sugar for the cake
我用了6寸方形烤盘烤了蛋糕 ~ 蛋糕食材的糖份减至135克

– i used organic coconut oil for the fudge topping
巧克力淋面酱用了有机椰子油替代

– i sliced my cake into half as ah bu wanted 2 layers of chocolate topping and i swirled the topping a bit after it harden to give it some wave
阿母喜欢两层巧克力淋面酱,所以我将蛋糕破半,在半个蛋糕上抹上巧克力酱。收尾时,待顶部巧克力面酱有些凝固后,在用叉子稍微拉上波浪纹路

    With your Ah Bu around, it certainly gives you lots of confidence and motivation. Im sure more cakes and kueh to come, right? And, I loves anything chocolate and more so steamed chocolate cakes, it sure does makes the cake dense, and moist. Yum.

  • Luvena (July 30, 2014)

    Hey Victoria,

    I love your blog and your recipes! Always so inspirational. Made this cake some time back. I have no complains except that it turned out really crumbly. Would you know the reason why? Also, does it matter if I used Dutch processed or natural cocoa powder?

    • Victoria Bakes (July 30, 2014)

      Thanks Luvena. Did you over steam your cake? Steaming times may differ depending on the heat of your stove. Also, Dutch process and normal cocoa powder cannot be used interchangeably. Dutch process cocoa powder is usually used in recipes with baking powder as its acidity has been neutralized. DP cocoa powder does not react to baking soda as normal cocoa powder does.

      Note this recipe uses both baking powder and baking soda. Baking powder as we all know is one third baking soda and two thirds other ingredients. If you use DP cocoa powder, you may get some rise, but not enough. There may even be a chance that the batter may quickly rise then fall before the bubbles had a chance to bake in. Either or, your result will not be good.

      Hence, unless stated specifically, always stick to normal cocoa powder. Hope this helps

      • Luvena (August 1, 2014)

        Thank you for all the information! Seems like I may have over-steamed it.

        I\’ve read from somewhere that natural cocoa powder cannot be substituted with DP cocoa powder. Unfortunately, finding natural cocoa powder where I live is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Sad truth. Since that\’s something beyond my control, is there a way to use DP cocoa powder in recipes that call for natural cocoa powder?

  • Victoria Bakes (August 1, 2014)

    Hello Luvena, ok, not guaranteeing any results, but try substitute cocoa powder with your DP cocoa powder one for one, and replace baking soda with twice the amount of baking powder. I think this may work if my memory don\’t fail me 🙂

    • Luvena (August 4, 2014)

      Oh no worries!! I will do some more research and figure out the best combination and when I do and I succeed, I will update you 🙂

  • Zoe (November 18, 2014)

    请问如果我用有盐的butter可以吗?
    还有蛋糕蒸的时候会膨胀吗?大概多高?
    谢谢

    • Victoria Bakes (November 18, 2014)

      Hi Zoe, 因为每户厂家带盐黄油的(盐)份量不同,我推荐这个食谱还是用无盐黄油。毕竟,食谱也没有另外要求加盐。

      蛋糕蒸煮过程中会膨胀,具体膨胀多高已记不起(太长时间了 >_<)..抱歉哈

      • Zoe (November 18, 2014)

        谢谢你的回复,那么要倒几分满呀?<3

        • Victoria Bakes (November 18, 2014)

          您是打算做成杯子蛋糕吗?模子我用了6寸方形蛋糕。如果做成杯子蛋糕,面糊倒约8分满吧。蒸煮时间您适当调整哈

      • Zoe (November 18, 2014)

        我是用模子,因为我怕它会满出来,谢谢你哦。
        如果我把糖只放100g左右可以吗?因为家人们不爱甜。^^ 谢谢你的回复。

  • Victoria Bakes (November 18, 2014)

    甜度依照个人口味,咋们家也不爱甜食,就爱微甜。所以我就加了135克。。。我觉得100克有点偏低,不过要是你们家接受得了,那也无妨 :)

    • Zoe (November 18, 2014)

      那么巧克力酱(toping) 是甜的吗?
      因为我觉得如果蛋糕不甜,巧克力酱可以微甜一点的说。:):):)

      • Victoria Bakes (November 18, 2014)

        Hi Zoe, 是的,因为巧克力淋面酱是炼奶做的,所以是甜的。也可免掉这淋面酱。

        谢谢您的支持,愿祝妈妈生辰快乐

  • Zoe (November 18, 2014)

    谢谢你哦,我第一次做蛋糕 。其实我妈妈今天生日,我想做蛋糕给她。:)谢谢你回答我那么多问题。 你的食谱好赞哦 <3

  • Yunli Hau (May 29, 2015)
