This steamed ondeh ondeh/klepon sponge cake is super easy to put together. You don’t need any special equipment like a handmixer or a standmixer to prepare the cake batter. The texture of the cake is moist, soft, and spongy.

How to make steamed ondeh ondeh/klepon sponge cake

1. I use mini cupcake cups. You can use ceramic or aluminum cups or mini muffin cups. Brush with some oil or use a non-stick spray to coat the cups. Bring the water in the steamer to a boil and then lower the heat to medium 2. Whisk eggs and sugar until the sugar dissolves 3. Add pandan essence (I forgot to add it in this step), milk, and oil . Whisk again to combine. Sift in the dry ingredients and whisk until you get a smooth batter 5. Scoop the batter into the cup, about 3/4 full 6. Steam over medium heat for about 10 minutes. The surface should be dry to touch and bounce back when you gently press on it. Toothpick inserted should come out clean with a bit of stickiness is fine as long as no wet batter 7. Let the sponge cake cool down in the cup and then unmold 8. Place a cold heavy cream and coconut sugar in a bowl. Use a balloon whisk to whisk vigorously until you get a stiff peak. Take care not to overwhip as the cream will turn grainy. Cover and keep it chilled in the fridge 9. Use the piping nozzle (the wide side) to make a hole in the sponge cake for the filling. Take care not to poke through the bottom of the cake because the filling will leak out 10. Transfer filling to a piping bag fitted with a nozzle. Fill the hole with the cream. Sprinkle with some desiccated coconut on top I suggest filling them up with the filling on the day you want to serve them
