SOFT AND FLUFFY STEAMED BANANA CAKE

image

       This is my 3rd attempt to make steamed banana cake and i am very pleased and satisfy with the result. This cake is very soft , light with very smooth banana taste. The cake also remain soft and the taste is much better after overnight. No eggs smell or you can’t taste any egg at all just a smooth banana taste.

       Less banana mean you will get a pale and less black tread like structure on your cake which is make the cake not attractive at all. The right balance between banana and flour will produce a soft , light and fluffy banana cake. Also, on my 3rd attempt i use cake flour instead of plain flour. I find that with plain flour you will not get a light and soft texture as like you use cake flour. One more thing, you can bake this batter if you want to.

Tips#

1. Use low heat to steam your cake..we don’t want any mountain view on top of the cake.

2. Cover the steamer with clean kitchen towel before put the lid on. This is to avoid the water vapour from drop into cake surface.
