Rainbow Slice Cake! Ramadan is Coming..

Hi everybody! Next month, Muslims start to fasting on the occasion of Ramadan. And usually people start to give cake or cookie to each other. Today I'm going to share my Rainbow Slice Cake recipe to you, so you can make your own for your love one!

Rainbow Cake Slice (Steamed)
Ivan Wongso
7 Large Eggs (60 gram each)
270 grams Sugar
1 1/2 tbsp Cake Emulsifier (like SP, Ovalette but I prefer Starkies)
Dry (mix & sieve)
180 grams All Purpose Flour
60 grams Cornflour 
60 grams Full cream Milk Powder
Melt together
225 grams White Milk Chocolate 
150 grams Butter
6 Rainbow food color (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple) or Rainbow Paste flavoring (like Golden Brown-Indonesia)

  1. Preheat the steamer with enough water. Make sure the water boiling. Line the base of 22x22 x7 cm pan with baking paper and oil.
  2. In the mixer bowl, using whisk attachment, beat the wet ingredients until ribbon stage (Double in volume and thick).
  3. Beat in the dry ingredient until well combined.  
  4. Last, beat melted butter and white chocolate in high speed for about 30 seconds until well combined.
  5. Divide the batter to 6 bowl (about 220 grams each) and mix with the coloring.
  6. Steam each color for 10 minute start from purple to red.
  7. After all, steam 10 more minute. Steam never make the cake burnt.
  8. Let cool completely for 1-2 hour. Cut the sides, transfer to cooking rack, remove the paper then transfer to cutting board.
  9. Slice the cake to 3 column, then slice each column to 20 slices.
  10. Wrap in plastic packaging and done!
Secret of beautiful rainbow: Use small amount of food coloring, increasing if necessary. Never use too much food coloring or people will frightened :O. Boring of rainbow? Make Ombre! Choose your favorite color and color the batter with different shades. 
Pack your cake in a good tin or box and give it to your love one!

Hope you like it and ask me if you need any help!
