Steamed Almond Chocolate Cake 蒸杏仁巧克力蛋糕

I wanted to make a cake for dear sis but since I do not have an oven now, I decided to make her the steamed moist chocolate cake which I think is the best steamed cake. As I want to give Best Recipes For Everyone a support, I decided to add in some ground almond.

For Cake :
Ingredients :
180g butter 
180g caster sugar
200g full cream evaporated milk
2 eggs, slightly beaten with fork
80g plain flour
20g ground almond
50g cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla extract or 1 tsp vanilla essense
2 tbsp of rum 

Methods :
1. Combine caster sugar, evaporated milk, vanilla extract or essense and butter in a saucepan.Stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved and butter is melted, turn off the fire and keep warm.
2. Add the beaten eggs into the slightly cold evaporated milk mixture and stir till well mix.
3. Sift the flour, ground almond, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda into a large mixing bowl, then pour the eggs mixture over the flour and stir till well mix (cake batter should be runny - mine is like the batter for brownie)
4. Heat up the steamer.
5. Lined and greased a 8" round baking pan.
6. Pour the batter into the lined pan and place the pan into the steamer and cover the top of the pan loosely with a piece of aluminum foil.
7. Cover the steamer and steam over medium heat for 45 mins. 
8. Cool the cake in pan before turning out for further decoration. 

For Frosting :
150g chocolate, chopped into small pieces
50g milk

Method :
1. Double boil the chocolate and milk until chocolate is melt.
2. Pour onto the cake and chill the cake.

* This amount of chocolate ganache is not sufficient to coat the whole cake, you need to increase the amount of chocolate if you want to frost the entire cake.

The cake is chocolatey delicious, everyone who tasted the cake given thumb up!
