Aspiring Bakers #12: Steamed Egg Cake (Ji Dan Gao) 鸡蛋糕

After seeing so many entries posted for our traditional kueh theme, which are all very pretty and colourful, I feel a bit embarrassed about posting my plain plain kueh.

Bloggers here have again set another difficult theme for me, who hardly know how to make kueh. Few years ago, I did tried Ang Koo Kueh and Min Jiang Kueh before.

This time I was trying to find something easy to start with. So I tried Ellena's Ji Dan Gao. It uses the tradtional way of making using fizzy drinks like cream soda, 7-Up or Sprite. While it is very soft and spongy, I feel like it is the same as any sponge cake. I wonder if I got it correct.

With only less than 2 weeks left, I hope I have the time to make nicer kuehs.

I am submitting this Ji Dao Gao to Aspiring Bakers #12: Traditional Kueh (October 2011), hosted by Small Small Baker.
