  1. Set a bamboo steamer large enough to contain a 9x9 inch pan over simmering water. Sift together the cake flour, baking powder and green tea powder. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the egg yolks, sugar, water and vanilla extract. Using an electric mixer, beat on medium speed until mixture has tripled in volume. Fold in the flour mixture, mixing just until combined.
  3. Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Gently fold whites into the egg yolk mixture. Pour batter into the cake pan.
  4. Place cake pan in steamer. Stretch a kitchen towel over the cake pan without touching the surface, then cover with steamer lid. Steam cake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Sprinkle with black sesame seeds and cut into pieces before serving.

This cake is not a "wow" but it sure is very good. I reduced the sugar, and used 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of splenda. The splenda does not affect the taste of the cake at all, so this is a...

This tasted like the recipe for Chinese steamed cake (on this website). I used one cup of white sugar. I didn't have any black sesame seeds, but it was delicious anyways.

This was surprisingly easy to make. I used my B&D Electric Steamer. I poured most of the recipe into the oval plastic container and the rest into 4 ramekins. It took about 15 minutes for the ram...

Fantastic recipe! My husband loves it!

The only way I could get this cake to cook was to put the batter onto wax paper, and place that directly onto the bamboo steamer. Served with light whipped and frozen raspberries. Was the perfec...
