My sister

Today is my second sister's birthday. Eversince I stopped working, she has been a great help in keeping me company during my "lonely" days. Knowing that I have been so stressed out, she actually bought me a voucher for massage on Mother's Day. So, I think it is my turn to do something nice for her. I decided to surprise her with a Steam Chocolate Fudge Cake later on. Though I am better in baking cheese cake, unfortunately she doesn't really fancy cheese. Let's hope that she will like this one.

What you need

90g castor sugar
150ml milk
150g butter
100ml condensed milk
50g cocoa powder

2 eggs, lightly beaten

Fudge:

Method

Combine sugar, milk, butter and condensed milk in a saucepan. Stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved and butter is melted.

In a mixing bowl, add cocoa powder. Pour milk mixture slowly into cocoa powder while mixer is mixing at medium speed. Make sure there are no lumps formed. Set aside to let cool.

Add eggs gradually into chocolate milk.

Fold flour into mixture until no lumps are found.

Pour into a greased 8 inch round tin.

Steam for 40 minutes over rapid boiling water. Add boiled water during steaming, if necessary.

Let cake in pan for 10 minutes. Turn cake onto a wire rack and let cool completely.

To prepare fudge:

Once fudge is cool, you can start to frost the cake.

  4. Edith,

    Pardon this Sauku here who has some questions regarding this recipe.

    150ml milk, is it evaporated milk or any fresh milk?

    cake flour, what is the brand of the cake flour? Is it labelled as "Cake Flour" on the packaging?

    I have no experience in this area but am very keen to whip this up in the near future.

    Sorry for the trouble.

    Thanks!

  5. Edith,
    Nice cake. I can 'smell' the chocolate from here. Keke..

    Evelyn,
    Can I kpo here abit? Milk, unless specifically stated, you can use fresh milk or UHT milk. Cake flour is a type of low protein flour. The brand "Prima" carries this type of flour. Edith, correct me if I am wrong hor. ;)
