A Classic Chinese Steamed Cake: Steamed Egg Sponge Cake, Ji Dan Gao
Steamed Egg Sponge Cake (Ji Dan Gao 鸡蛋糕), I call them light and fluffy Chinese spongecake. Ji Dan Gao is a household homemade cake more especially to Chinese families. I grew up having these frequently during festive seasons. This recipe of steamed cake is easy as it only consists of egg, sugar and flour. Any leavening agent has been replaced with soda water!
A Light Cake With All The Goodness Of Eggs
This is a recipe is simplified further if an electric mixer is used to beat the batter. This beats more air into the batter, producing a lighter cake. I just love the subtle egg aroma it gives. Coupled with soft vanilla sweetness, this cake is perfect for snacking anytime, any day. Due to the moist nature of steaming, this sponge cake is so much softer and moister. As always, ENJOY!
