Steamed Sponge Cake with Meat Floss

Another interesting recipe I found on the net, it's a steamed sponge cake with meat floss! Since my kids like meat floss, I just had to make this.

I didn't have any self raising flour at home so I used plain flour and added baking powder and baking soda. Also, I reduced the sugar slightly and it's just right for my family. The cake is soft and fluffy but slightly messy to eat as the floss on the top layer kept falling off. I'll omit the top layer the next time I make this.

100g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt

3 eggs
40g caster sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar

30ml milk
30g vegetable oil

50g pork floss

  1. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt and sift twice.
  2. Beat the eggs, sugar and cream of tartar until it turns thick and pale.
  3. Fold in the sifted flour mixture.
  4. Fold in the milk and oil.
  5. Pour half the batter into a 8-in round tin lined with baking sheet.
  6. Sprinkle half of the pork floss on the batter.
  7. Pour another half of the batter into the tin and sprinkle the remaining pork floss on the surface.
  8. Steam for 15 - 20 minutes.
  9. Serve.

How much self-raising flour to use to make this ? Is cream of tartar compulsory ?

Blessed Homemaker said...

You may use 100g SRF plus 1/2 tsp baking powder. Cream of tartar is used to stablise the whisk eggs. Alternatively, you may replace with 1 TBSP lemon juice.
