Indonesian Steamed Sponge Cake (Bolu Kukus)

 One of my favourite Indonesian's cake! I'm so glad I can share it with you guys. This cake is a little bit tricky though, sometimes the cake might not bloom like the one in the pictures. Don't worry I've tried this recipe and it worked! Good luck!

-250 gram of all purpose flour
- 3 eggs
- 200 gram of sugar (can be lesser)
- 1 tablespoon of emulsifier
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 200ml of soda water/ sprite

Mix the eggs and sugar with high speed mixer for 15 minutes

Put in the emulsifier and soda water. Keep mixing for 10 minutes

Pour in the flour and other ingredients (baking soda) while mixing it in low speed

Divide the batter into half or any way you like it. Add chocolate, cocopandan or pandan paste into the batter.

Put in the paper cup into the cupcake mold. Then pour in the batter into the paper cup.

Steam the batter in a hot steamer for 15 minutes.
Give extra space between the molds when steaming the cakes as these cakes need a lot of steams to perfectly rise and crack in the middle.

  1. Did you use special cupcake mold ( the one with holes/Indonesian steamed sponge cup cake mold ) or just regular cupcake mold ?

    Thank you.
