Ham & Corn Steamed Cake

I bought this recipe book about steamed cake / bread from BookFest @ Malaysia on Mon.  Most of the recipes are savory cakes, I seldom eat savory cake, thus would love to give it a try.

Make 6

8 tbsps cake flour
4 tbsps fine cornmeal
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg
2 tbsps brown sugar
4 tbsps milk
1 tbsp corn oil
2 pinch salt

3 tbsps sweet corn
3 pieces ham, cubed

  1. Mixed cake flour, cornmeal and baking powder in a bowl
  2. Beat egg and sugar in another bowl with a whisk
  3. Pour in milk into egg mixture, mix well, then fold in (1)
  4. Once mixture is not lumpy, mix in corn oil and salt, fold til just combine
  5. Add in sweet corn and cubed ham into batter, lightly stir mixture
  6. Spoon batter into muffin cups
  7. Boil water in steamer, once boiled, place (6) into steamer, steam for 12 - 15 minutes on medium flame

The verdict - not bad for a change from sweet cake, yum!

It is so easy & fast to have all these cakes ready, not more than 30 min, I'll definitely try out other recipes in the book
