Gula Melaka Steamed Cake
150g gula melaka
150g self raising flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
80g corn oil
Melt gula melaka and milk over slow fire. The aroma will be amazing. :)
Beat 3 eggs until creamy.
Add sifted self raising flour and baking soda to the egg mixture. Making sure that there are no lumps. Add the corn oil.
After the gula melaka mix has cooled slightly, add that into the mixture as well and stir till incorporated. The syrup is denser than the rest of the mixture so when you pour out the mixture, don't worry if you see gula melaka left over. Just stir it well into the final batter before steaming.
Steam for half an hour or until cooked. (Use a bamboo skewer. Cake is done when skewer comes out clean :))
It tastes a lot like the steamed Malay Cake. Although it's really rich in the coconut sugar taste, I think I might add a knot of pandan into the sugar to boil next time for added fragrance :)
