Happen to see this recipe posted on the internet, where cream cracker is used for making cake, instead of flour! Decided to give it a try, and curious to know how it tastes. I must say, it taste good! just like butter cake, and you can’t tell it’s steamed! and not baked!
Ingredient used and steps taken in my attempt.
80 g caster sugar
227g unsalted butter
300 g crushed cream crackers
30 g (1 satchet) Milo 3-in-1 powder
2 teaspoons of condense milk.
- Prepare a 6-inch square tin, and oil it with a little butter.
- Cream the butter and sugar in a mixer, until it turns pale yellow.
- Add in the egg 1 by 1, in the butter mixture, and continue to mix it.
- Add in the condense milk, and mix it.
- Add in the crushed cream crackers, and mix it.
- Divide the batter into 2 portions
- Add Milo powder into 1 portions and mix it. (let’s call this Milo Batter, and the other portion called Original Batter)
- Bring steamer to boil.
- Pour half of the original batter into the tin, and steam it for 5 minutes. Place an aluminium foil over the top to prevent dripping water.
- Remove the tin from steamer, and pour half of the Milo batter into the tin as second layer. Steam it for 5 minutes.
- Remove the tin from steamer, and pour the remainder original batter into the tin, and steam it for 5 minutes.
- Remove the tin from steamer, and pour the remainder Milo batter into the tin and steam it for 20 minutes after this last layer.
Note: I will attempt the coffee and milo layers the next round.. 2-in-1 white coffee would be a good choice.
