Steamed Caramel Sponge Cake Recipe with Step by Step Pictures.
Simple sponge cake which is steamed to perfection. It has a caramel topping which is sticky and goes well with the sponge.The cake needs just a handful of ingredients and it is super easy to make as well.
This is a recipe which i created, since i had few eggwhites leftover from my mayonnaise. So I put that in good use. I created this recipe and when i was steaming i was quite skeptical how the cake will turn out since there is no fat in this recipe. But to my surprise it turned out perfect. The cake was soft and little moist from the caramel topping.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
