"Children need our presence more than our presents"
Selam everybody .... Merhaba from Turkey..
My today's post is steamed cake from egg white again. If you are my blog's regular reader you probably notice that I posted many steamed cake in this humble page, and some of them used egg white-mostly left over egg white..
Yes I do like steamed cake. Cake with steamed process I think it's more moist than bake one. And for me any recipe I use with steamed process it become fail proof recipe (^,^) ... trust me. I tried many time, with same recipe, when I steamed it, it always came out fluffy and moist cake while same time I got 'broken heart' cake out from my oven... in fact that recipe with oven bake method... I have no idea why..
Please do check other steamed cake post on "steamed" over cooking method section.
You can also check specific steamed cake from egg white like Spiced steamed cake here, Chocolate steamed cake from egg white, Steamed zebra cake here.
And today I just steamed another cake from left over egg white and this time I twist chocolate flavor with my favorite Pandan flavor on marble cake.
Steamed process took about 45 minutes, but for steamed cake you can not just depends on how long you cook your cake, you must check by inserted skewer in the middle, continue steam if your skewer comes out still wet (it should comes out really clean).
As you can see my pictures here, the cake looks so fluffy, spongy and moist... So if you have many left over egg white.. try to make this! guarantee you'll love it too! (^,^)
