Oatmeal Caramel Steam Cake

March 18, 2009


The basic of this recipe is Indonesian traditional steam cake. I made a little twist by adding oatmeal and use caramel instead of caster sugar 🙂

3 medium eggs
50 gr caster sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
350 gr sugar, make caramel with 400 ml of water (be careful not to burn it)
400 gr all purpose flour
100 gr oatmeal
200 ml vegetable oil

Sieve together flour, baking powder and baking soda.
Beat sugar and eggs until very thick and pale, stop only when your mixer already makes trail on the dough.
Add all other ingredients to the dough a little by a little while mixing it.

Pour the dough in little ramekins which already lightly oiled until almost full.
Steam on high heat for about 25-30 minutes (or more, depends on the size of your mould) until done. Make sure you cover the lid of your steamer with cloth to prevent the water from dripping down to your cake.

    These look really great. I’m going to have to try these. I haven’t steamed anything before, how did you go about that?

    you need to have steamer 🙂
    or regular pot filled with hot water with something to put in the middle to hold the moulds from touching the water directly
    you want just the steam from the hot water to cook your cake, not the water itself.
