    Steamed brownies (Brownies Kukus) first found their fame in Indonesia about twelve years ago after one bakery from Bandung introduced this cake. From that point on, a lot of people in Indonesia started to commercialize steamed brownies too.


    • 6 Eggs
    • 225 gr Granulated Sugar
    • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence
    • 1/2 tsp Emulsifier
    • 125gr Cake flour
    • 50gr Cocoa powder
    • 175ml Vegetable oil
    • 100gr Dark Cooking Chocolate
    • 75 ml Sweet Condensed Milk


    1. Melt the dark cooking chocolate then mix it with the vegetable oil. Set aside.
    2. Sift the cake flour and cocoa powder. Set aside.
    3. Cover the steamer's lid with clean cloth then heat the steamer with big fire.
    4. Cream eggs, sugar, vanilla essence and emulsifier with high speed electric mixer.
    5. Incorporate well the flour and cocoa powder mixture into the egg and sugar mixture by using spatula.
    6. Pour the melted dark cooking chocolate and vegetable oil mixture onto the brownies batter. Mix well by using spatula.
    7. Divide the brownies batter into 3 portions - let's call them mixture A, B and C.
    8. Mix 1/3 of the brownies batter with sweet condensed milk then set aside (this is mixture B). Mixture A and C are the brownies batter without the sweet condensed milk.
    9. Pour mixture A onto the cake pan which is already lined with parchment paper. Then, steam it for 10 minutes.
    10. Pour mixture B on top of the steamed mixture A. Steam the brownies for another 10 minutes.
    11. Lastly, add mixture C on top of the steamed mixture A and B. Steam the whole brownies for 20 minutes. Total steaming time is 40 minutes as we are making 3 layers of the brownies.
    12. Once done, take the brownies out of the steamer. Let it cool for a bit then release the brownies from the cake pan.
    13. Decorate the brownies with melted white chocolate or dust the top of the brownies with icing sugar, as desired.
