A. Using a rice cooker to steam

8. Pour about 400 ml of water into a rice cooker and place a steamer stand in it. 
Select 'Steam' function and set the cooking time to 
A) 5 minutes if steam in two separate plates, or 
B) 7 minutes if steam in one cake tin
and start steaming the batter in the rice cooker till cooked.
A) 5分钟,如果分两盘,或
B) 7分钟,如果用一个蛋糕模,

9. Let the cake cool down before cutting it :)
让白糖糕冷却后才切片食用 :)

B. Using a pot over stove to steam

You can also steam the batter in a covered  pan or pot for 15 to 20 minutes in medium heat.

P.S. A thicker cake, like the one in a round cake mould, will need longer steaming time, and vice versa. A thinner cake in a bigger plate is recommended :)
较厚的白糖糕需较长的蒸煮时间,反之则较短。薄片较好吃 :)

C. Using a mini electric steamer
In 2 small trays
Grease the two small trays before pouring in the batter.

Turn the timer to 15 minutes, and steam from cold water. Allow the cake to stay in the steamer for about 5 minutes.

Wrap the cake with cling wrap for easy dispensing of the cake :)
