  • In a large bowl, sift together the Mastercook Maida, Cocoa powder, Sugar, Baking soda and powder.
  • Add the milk, oil, lemon juice and vanilla.
  • Whisk well to combine, the mixture will be runny.
  • Add it to your prepared baking tray. Cover tightly with foil.
  • Steam in the steamer on medium heat for 45 minutes to an hour. Check it by poking a skewer into the middle, it should come out clean.

Tips for cooking

  • The batter will seem like barely enough for the tin, but once it is steamed it will come up more than halfway up the sides, so do not worry.
  • Ensure that the top is covered tightly with foil, otherwise water may seep into the cake and make it soggy.
