Steam Sponge Cake

Steam sponge cake was one of my favourite during childhood and thanks to Cook Bake Legacy for sharing this wonderful recipe. Was delighted when the cake turned out so good and seeing hubby and daughter enjoyed eating it. It was a successful attempt although I halved the recipe. Will definitely do it again soon.

The cake texture was so soft.
Here is the recipe adapted from Cook Bake Legacy:

250 gm top flour
250 gm caster sugar
2 tbsp milk powder
6 large eggs
60 gm corn oil

Method: Sift flour and milk powder together. Beat the eggs and sugar together till light pale in color and the ribbon stage. (If you lift the beaters up and do a figure of eight on the batter, the figure of 8 must be visible for about 3 secs. before disappearing). Gradually fold in the flour mixture and oil and batter till well mix using a spatula. Pour batter into a 8" square baking pan lined with greaseproof paper.
Cover the top with aluminium foil.Steam on high heat for 30 mins and check if skewer comes out clean.If not steam for another 5 to 10 mins.
