I was reading Nonya's blog and she made Steam Sponge Cake. It kind of reminds me of my childhood where my mother used to made this for us too. In those days we don't have electrical mixer so my brothers and I will help my mother whisking the eggs and sugar with a small hand whisk. We will sit on a stool in the kitchen and whisking away and it was tiring. We never weight the ingredients. We just 'agak agak' like 10 eggs, 1 kati of sugar and 1 kati of flour. Then we will pour the batter into a steaming basket and steam it on a wood fire stove. I remember it taste so good especially with a hot cup of kopi-O.
Here is a really simple recipe:
1 1/4 cups of sugar
2 cups of flour
4 tbsp of melted butter
1 tsp of vanilla
1 tsp of baking powder
a pinch of salt
1) Whisk the eggs and sugar until is white and fluffy or double the volume.
2) Slowly fold in the flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla.
3) Lastly add in the melted batter.
4) Pour into a greased pan and steam for 25 minutes or until is done.
Note : I made it in different colors and steam it in a little baking pan. Big mistake because it so hard to remove the cake. That is why you will notice the cake 'pecah pecah' The next time I will just steam it in a muffin pan.
