Steamed Moist Chocolate Cake

Yesterday I received good news. I was so happy and excited that I wanted to break my diet! So this morning, I woke up and head to the supermarket to stock up some ingredients to make a cake. I wanted it Chocolate Cake. But I came to realize that my oven is out of order. I probably have to wait till the end of May or maybe longer depend on my financial situation. I want to move to a bigger room that has a proper kitchen space. As for now, my kitchen is extremely small that I don’t think it consider as a kitchen. But it never stops me from making good food! Never stops me from cooking. Never stops me from inventing delicious food. Since I don’t have oven, I choose to steam the chocolate cake. I didn’t even doubt about it. I remember my sister told me once that she had a steamed chocolate cake. I asked her for the recipe but too bad that it’s premix ingredients. But since now I know it exists, I have a high chance of making it work! The result? I love it! It’s so moist and rich! Strong cocoa’s flavor. But I think it will taste better if I add some coffee extract.
