Two little bakers in action

Before the school break ended, I planned a baking session for my two princesses. I have mentioned that I want to get them into the kitchen more, and we want to try to steam a cake again.
 I got the recipe printed out and had them to read it themselves. 
April sifted 4 tablespoon of self raising flour and 1 teaspoon of baking powder.
 May did the right way of sifting flour.
Add in 3 tablespoon of milk
Add in 3 tablespoon of melted butter.
Add in 5 tablespoon of sugar and 1 egg.
Stir to mix everything well.
Pour batter into mould.
While they put the batter in mould, mummy set up boiling water for steaming.
Steam for approximately 15 minutes.
Test the cake with a toothpick and it should come out clean.
I melted some cooking chocolate with butter, and poured it onto the cake, as I skipped putting in cocoa powder and chocolate chips.
Cakes were ready to serve.
Meet my two little bakers. They love doing this, and they have started to ask for the next baking session.

  2. Bravo to the little bakers :) The cake looks fluffy and despite being steamed, the texture looks like the same as cakes that are baked.

  7. That's the wonder of this recipe... it's so simple that the kids can do it. Glad the girls had fun baking with mummy :) Without the cocoa powder nice or not? I'd like to try this too!

    Yan, I noticed that the tablespoon you used is the tablespoon for eating. I used to do that too until someone (who is very good in baking) told me that it's WRONG. Must use those standard baking measurement spoon for more accurate results so I quickly went to buy a set hehe :p Luckily your cake still jadi :)

  16. I remembered I did lots of baking with Ethan when he was younger. Now I just can't find the time :( Must start baking/steaming again :)

  17. Hi Sheoh Yan, well done! You did it. This is something your girls will never forget. 20 years from now we will read their blogs about how their lovely mom taught them about baking, cooking.
    And lucky will be the man who marries them one day.

    I had a friend who lost his wife thru sickness. He took up cooking and baking lessons, in turn taught his daughter. By age 7 she could do simple work, cutting vegetables, etc.
    By age 10 she cook cook simple dishes. By 14, she amazed us, cooking a 5 course dinner! On her own.
    Yes, Sheoh Yan.....bring up your daughters as how you want them to be.....
    You will be in them, they in you for always.
    Have a nice day.
    Lee.
