Steam Chocolate Banana Cake

I'm a die-hard fans of chocolate banana..... Erm, i think this statement isn't true enough. I should say I'm a chocolate fans. Basically, i never skip all kind of chocolate concoction even spicy chocolate. Previously, i will buy for eating. But now, i will buy for baking...  (:
Today recipe sharing is steam cake, chocolate with banana. You can add extra chocolate like chocolate bar to intense the flavor. But i choose to make it simple, only cocoa powder used.
And this cake tend to call it as "crack" cake rather than crab cake... *^^* please read the NOTE that i share on the below. You will understand more.

  • 50g (1/3cup) All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/3 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 tablespoon Margarine (melted)
  • 1 medium Banana (mashed)
  • 2 Eggs (cold)
mix all the dry ingredient together except sugar, sift well and then set aside.
melt the margarine & mash the banana.
lightly beat the cold eggs.
add the sugar little by little.
beat them together until it reached ribbon stage.
add the oil, whisk well.
next add in the flour & mashed banana. Do not over mixing the batter!
prepare your own molds & grease their surface.
steam for about 8 minutes with high heat.

  • remember grease your mold, or else you will get in trouble to unmold the cake and clean the mold!!!

  • bigger mold need longer steam time.
  • do not using plastic mold like what I'm do. Because it left some quirky smell on your cake.
