Easy Steamed Sponge Cake

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by UW4Life

I grew up on this. I usually make 2 batches so it lasts. Great warm or cold. I don't have a formal steamer, so I just use my wok with a small support in the middle to hold up the cake pan.

Very yummy! I've looked at other recipes but they all seem too eggy. The taste and consistency of this one is very good. I added 1/2 tsp of baking powder and 1/4 tsp of salt to a second batch that i made so it would rise a little bit more.
