Easy Steamed Cakes – Steam Banana Cake Recipe


By Kate Miller


I know many of you out there who aren't very good at baking but would love to make a cake for the whole family. Well, you can still manage to do so, a steamed cake that is.


Steaming is undeniable the safest way to “bake” your cake – you can't burn the cake and it always turn out moist.  What's  more, “baking” your cake using a steamer is great for summer when you don't want to heat the kitchen by using the oven. So, fret not non-bakers, here's another steam cake recipe to impress your family and friends........

Steam Banana Cake Recipe


174 grams plain flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

120 grams butter, at room temperature

150 grams sugar

2 eggs

2 overripe bananas, peeled and mashed

2 tablespoons milk


How to make steamed banana cake

Sift together flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Set aside.


In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat well.


Stir in mashed bananas, then the milk and sifted flour mixture. Combine all ingredients well.


Pour the mixture into a cake tin or paper muffin cups  and place in a steamer. Steam banana cake over high heat for about 15 to 18 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.


Remove banana cake from steamer and allow to cool for a few minutes. Loosen the sides of the cake with a knife, and pop the it out from the cake tin.


Here you go, that's one pretty steamed cake and I'm sure the kids will love it!
