Chocolate are absolutely a luscious, luxurious, sinful & irresistible to me!! Being a super duper choclate lover, I am so ecstatic when I found this steam chocolate cake recipe that doesn't require baking.
Since I do not have an oven at home, there are very limited cake I can try without the usage of an oven.
I found this recipe at Peng's Kitchen 2days ago. And she got it from Honeysuckle Creations. I couldn't wait for weekends to try out this recipe, and decided to do it on Thursday night
The steam cake was easy to make, except the fudge didn't turn out hard enough. Probably my fire was not strong enough. But still, I am very please with it since it was my FIRST attempt. =p
I have cut down the sugar quite a bit as I don't have a sweet tooth even I am a big fan of chocolate. You can adjust the sugar level according to your intake.
