I was surprised when one of my close friend who live in NYC told me she like Kueh Nee Gor.I know kueh nee gor(steamed egg cake) is not many people favorite. I think the reason why many people don't really like this steamed cake is because it texture is quite dry and not really sweet like many other cake out there..I steamed 2 different flavor cake:chocolate and strawberry intend to brings as gift to visit my sick friend.Unfortunately,something come up,so I can't go..Now I left with 2 kueh nee gor for my breakfast..I remember when I was young I used to dipped this steamed cake into hot milo or horlick...yummmy!!
250 gm all purpose flour
500 gm granulated sugar *reduce if it's too sweet*
8 Large egg
2 tbsp orange juice (Tropicana)
3 tbsp 7-up or Sprite
1 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp coco powder
3 tbsp strawberry powder (Nesquick)
1: Sieved flour in a bowl ,set aside.
2: Combine eggs and sugar in mixer bowl,beat ingredients at highest speed until foamy and fluffy.It's about 15 minutes if you use hand beater on speed #3.If you're using Kitchen Aid mixer,use #8 speed for 10 minutes.
3:Then add in 7-up and orange juice before adding in flour.Reduce speed to low ,mix flour well together,remove immediately after 10 round whips .Or just fold in the flour using spatula.*Do not over beat the mixture*
3:Meanwhile,prepare water in a steamer at high heat.
4:Divided the batter into 4 portion.Scoop 1/4 of the dough into a prepared parchment paper over 2 steam basket. Mixed the other 1/4 dough with cocoa powder and swirl over the dough in the basket,to make marble effect cake.Use knife or chopstick or spoon to swirl the chocolate batter .Repeat the same for strawberry flavor.
5:Steam batter in the steamer at high heat for 30 minutes .Do not let the vapor drop on the batter.Best result use clothes to close the gap.Remove the cover immediately from steamed cake to check the readiness by using toothpick.If the tooth pick come out clean,then it ready.
