7-Up Pandan Steamed Cake




My weekend fun consisted of making these cute steamed sponge cakes. I decided to make these since they were simple to make and I happened to have all the ingredients on hand. This was the first time I've steamed a cake, I got the recipe from Little Corner of Mine, but hers definitely looked much more appealing than mine. I thought mine were a little dry, not as spongy as expected.

Ingredients:
4 large eggs
2/3 - 3/4 cup of sugar, depending on how sweet you like it (I only used 1/2 cup of sugar)
1 tsp. Pandan extract
1 1/2 cup self-rising flour
50ml 7-up or Sprite

Directions:
1. In a bowl, beat eggs with an electric mixer until light and frothy.
2. Add in sugar and continue to beat until thick and creamy. When you lift the beater and write an 8, it will stay there for a few seconds.
3. Add in Pandan extract and beat to mix well.
4. Use a spatula and fold in flour in 3 batches (in one direction)
5. Add in 7-up and mix well.
6. Scoop batter into individually lined silicon cups and steam on high heat for 15 minutes. Best eaten warm on the same day.

Totally amazing! The first time I tried steam cake was when I was stranded at Narita airport after the March 2011 earthquake and the Red Cross gave me a box. I was hooked. These look identical to the melon ones I had that day except they're 7-up. Thanks for posting! I'm sure your grandchildren will feel pretty lucky...
