21 Feb 10 (Sun) - Steamed Moist Chocolate Cake

Found a recipe on Steamed Moist Chocolate Cake from the internet and psycho my sis’s SIL to try with me. She was better at baking and pastry and also has a lot of baking equipment. Followed the steps closely and prayed that the end product would turn out well. The conclusion of the end product was that the cake itself tastes good; the topping was a bit too runny and sweet though. However, after leaving the cake in the fridge overnight, it turned out that the topping became sticky and not so sweet.
