Steamed Chocolate cake with Sun flower decoration

Selam everybody....Merhaba from Turkey.

I believed that every woman is special, including you. And being a mother is a privileges "job" as well. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, no work contract, and it'll be forever as long as your life. The first education of human being, is in Mother's hands . So as a mother we should have a good and sufficient education to create a better generation in future. Let's never stop learning anything MOMS! 😍

And To All Moms and women (becoming mom), I wish you happy mother's Day.

Description of cake:
Size 8 "
Steamed chocolate Cake as a base with chocolate frosting as layer and decoration.
For Sunflower decoration I use fondant plastic icing.

İngredients and how to make Steamed chocolate brownies:
- 4 medium size whole eggs
- Plus 2 medium egg yolks
- 1 cup (225 gr) caster sugar
- 1 cup ( 140 gr) all purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- ½ cup (dark) cacao powder
- Pinch of salt
- ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
- 80 gr dark cooking chocolate (DCC)
- ¾ cup cooking oil

A. Grease 8" springform pan with margarine/butter, set aside. Sift together, flour,cornstarch, and cocoa powder. Set aside. Heat your steamer pan up to produce enough steam, medium heat only.
B. Double boil DCC until melted and mixed with cooking oil. Set aside. With electric mixer, beat eggs until fluffy,add caster sugar gradually. Combine salt. Whisk until pale and ribbon stage. whisk in vanilla essence.
C. Gradually, fold in flour mixture. Then fold in melting chocolate mixture, fold until blended and perform no lumps.
D. Pour into prepared pan and steam until done (approximately 45 minutes). Test with skewer, if it comes out clean when inserted in brownies, it means you done and you can remove the brownie from  steamer. Let cool to room temperature before unmold.

For chocolate frosting:
- 120 gr unsalted butter
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
- ½ cup whole milk.

Melt butter, combine cocoa powder and stir until blended. Mix in powdered sugar and milk alternately, whisk until all well blended. Finally mix in vanilla essence.
If you want a thinner frosting, you can add small amount of milk. Or if you want a thicker frosting, you may reduce amount of milk.

Slice chocolate brownie horizontally into 2 parts (or 3 parts according to your desire). Grease each slice's surface with chocolate frosting and stack neatly. Cover entire surface of the brownies with remaining chocolate frosting and decorate with  fondant plastic icing.
