Steam Cake

Steam Cake, originally uploaded by angryparsnip.

The Oven is usually not a part of the Japanese Kitchen.
Japanese Son has a microwave/oven combination so you can gage how big
his oven is.
This means... No Turkey at Thanksgiving !

Because of the lack of the oven they have come up with a way to steam
the "cake" in the Wok.

It can be called, Steam cake or Cheese cake.
When made comes out quite like a sponge cake only moist, light and
chewy at the same time.

This was a brand that I have never had before, It was nice but I like
the Steamed Cheese Cake I usually buy.
This one had some chopped up candied fruit in it.

But I can tell you it was quite nice with a cup of coffee in the

  1. Funny ho one can usually find a way where delicious eats are involved:)

    Where there is a will there is a way... right ?
    The cakes are so light and and not overly sweet. Perfect !

    I love the packaging on this cake, that is why I tried it !
    I frame some of my favorite packaging and put them up in my pantry but I have a so many that they are saved and used for other projects too.
    The cake I usually buy is an oval shaped and I can't remember the name but I know it when I see it.

  3. I think I prefer the regular baked kind of cake
    but will eat almost anything
    with carbohydrates in!
    Happy weekend!

    I unfortunately love all carbohydrates and have the hips to prove it !

  5. Where'd you get that.

    I think that one had chestnuts in it. Kuri 栗 is written on the front.

    The name of this thing is Mushikaku. The three characters on the name are mushi むし meaning steam and 角 meaning square. Steam cooked cakes and breads are some what popular at the moment. There's even a store called "Mr. Mushipan" (Mr. Steamed Bread).

    Anyhow, more information than you require going on in this comment.

    It was one I bought at the small but super wonderful Mitsuwa Market by Molly.
    I thought it tasted like chestnuts... you know how much I love chestnuts.
    I love your information.
