Birthday Cake

Can’t find a cake to match your theme? Why not bake your own? If you don’t have an oven, you can steam one using a double rack steamer. Try out this super easy recipe for a rich chocolate cake.


4 eggs
2 cups (250 ml) of coconut/soy or normal milk
125 ml honey or 100 g sugar
5 ml vanilla essence
2 cups (250 g) of flour
50 g cocoa powder
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
300 g chopped chocolate
200 g blueberries and/or pitted cherries (for texture and moisture)


Sift the dry ingredients together in one bowl (except for chocolate and berries), and whisk all the liquids together in a second bowl. If you choose to use sugar you can whisk it with your liquids. Put your steamer on to pre-heat. Fold the whisked liquids into the dry ingredients slowly to avoid clumps. If you find the mixture too dry, add milk as needed. Finally add in the chopped chocolate and berries, pour the mixture into the greased cake tins and place into a pre-heated steamer for around 55 minutes. Ice or frost the cake as preferred.

Notes: This mix makes enough for a double tier cake (8 inch and 4 inch) or one larger single tier (8 inch). Don’t forget to grease your cake tins with butter before you begin mixing your ingredients.
