Cooking Class:)

I made chocolate muffin last week.. Nothing oh- so- amazing about making muffin, it's just this is the 1st time I tried making it by steaming.. I altered the recipe making chocolate more dominant so the color was truly chocolate..Chocoliciousss~ Making muffin (or cake) through baking will give a somewhat crispy texture outside, and soft inside.. While steaming will give an all- over soft texture.. I don't mind much, it still taste just nice. At least I don't have to lament much for not having an oven since 1st year:')

Quite a number of people asking for the recipe that I've been thinking to put the recipe here before. But hesitate as I believe many already know how to make it.. But then, I don't think there's anything wrong about this.. Many people put their recipe online, no matter how easy it is, no matter they are truly a chef or housewife, let be men or women.. Plus, I know many people who like to search recipes on the net.. May be mine can contribute to anyone out there:)



  • Marie biscuits (around 300- 350g)
  • 2 sachets of 3 in 1 milo (total around 60g)
  • 1 cup of plain water (i usually make it half)
  • half cup to 1 cup of cocoa powder
  • 3/4 (three quarters) cup of sugar
  • half packet of butter/ margarine *i usually use margarine. it's cheaper. don't worry, the taste will be just fine:)*
  • eggs ( 1 or 2, any is okay)


  • the measurement for cocoa powder, milo, and sugar are subjects to change. alter it depend to how u like the taste to be:)
  • some people like their cake to be little harder.. so can decrease the butter n the water, n also by chilling the cake longer:) or the other way round:)
  • egg is actually not a compulsory. it's my extra, additional ingredients:)

  1. break the marie biscuits into 3, 4, or 5.. put aside.. *please.. not crushing them*
  2. prepare the egg. stir them a bit, then put aside.. *no need to stir "sampai kembang".. we are not making anything fluffy like real cake or what..*
  3. put cocoa, milo, sugar, n water together into the pan.
  4. then turn on the fire *moderate fire*, stir the mixture till the sugar are all melt, n all mixed together..
  5. then put the butter/ margarine, stir till all melting..
  6. finally put the egg. stir for a minute, then turn off the fire.*remember, u r not cooking the egg...*
  7. now put all the biscuits into the pan, mix them together, make sure all the biscuits are covered with the chocolate..
  8. then transfer them into the container.. press them well, then put into the refrigerator for 3 to 5 hours. u can take it out earlier, depend on the texture u want.. nak lembut sikit or keras sikit:)
p/s: just to share, another additional ingredients can be nestum, oat, or even nuts.. that's the other story:)

Simple, right? Trust me, later when this is at ur fingertips, you'll love doing it again and again as despite it's easy to make, it really is YUMMY^^

*I don't really do this often actually cuz the type of cocoa powder n biscuits marie I usually use are quite expensive.. at least, to me, they are expensive.. huhu*
