Steamed Orange Cake


My another attempt of making a steamed cake. This cake is specially made for my mum as she doesn't take dairy products. She is allergic to cow's milk, butter, cream, ice-cream and everything related to cow. Oh, my poor mum.

I tried to use superfine flour in this cake. The texture is different than my earlier steamed cake that was made with normal plain flour. I like its springy texture.  It's definitely the healthier type of sugar-reduced cake, with very little vegetable oil. I can gobbled down 4 pieces in one go without feeling guilty. :P

Hi! Did you fold the flour into the creamy egg mixture? By the way, can I use cake flour? Thanks!

Tzee Luai Meng, yes. If you use cake flour, you can omit the baking powder.
