|Mixed fruit that i used (glace cherry is not in the photo)|
This is an easy, alcohol free steamed fruit cake. You can just make the cake with a hand whisk or simply a spoon. Cake is soft and moist, tasted the best from day 2 onwards.
Steamed Mixed Fruitcake
90g brown sugar
300g mixed fruits*
Orange zest from 1 orange
*I used 150g raisin, 80h dried apricot, 35g dried cranberries and 25g glace cherries.
3 eggs (lightly beaten)
200g plain flour
1½ tsp double action baking powder (normal baking powder is fine)
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp cinnamon powder
120g chopped walnut (pre-roasted)
- Cook (A) at low heat until boiling. Add (B), mix well. Set aside to cool down completely.
- Add (C), mix well. Meanwhile, prepare steamer and start to boil water.
- Sieve in (D), mix till just incorporated.
- Fold in (E), mix well.
- Pour batter into greased and lined pan (I used 20cm round, you can use 23cm round or 20cm square). Steam on high heat for 90 mins (make sure there is enough water in the steamer, if need to add water must only use hot water).
Wrap the cover with cloth to prevent water from dripping on the cake if you are not using bamboo steamer.

You are welcome!
Angel 你好! 不知这蛋糕与你往年做的口感有何分别, 是否也能加朗姆酒让它更耐久? 全因年关之前通常都时间不够用, 尽量提前做。ReplyDelete

Where did you get all the dried fruits from? NTUC?
The Nona brand sultana I bought from JB but you can use any brand. Dried cranberries and apricot I bought from Sg Giant. I saw them in some bigger Ntuc too.
steamed cake definitely more healthier than bake one! your cake turned out so nice.ReplyDelete
