Steamed Sponge Cake


    • 175g plain flour
    • 1 1/2 tbsp bicarbonate of soda
    • 1/8 tsp salt
    • (All the above are sifted twice)
    • 130g margarine
    • 3 eggs
    • 1 tin condensed milk
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence


    Grease and flour a 20cm round or square cake pan.

    Beat margarine until light and fluffy then add in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

    Beat in condensed milk and add essence. Fold in sifted flour and mix well to blend to a batter-like consistency.

    Turn out batter into prepared pan. Steam over high heat for 30 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium then continue to steam for a further 15 minutes or until cake is cooked (test with a skewer).

    Remove cake out and cool on a wire rack.
