Steamed Rice Flour Gateau au Chocolat for Valentine's Day

These little cakes are easy to prepare, but taste just like gateaux au chocolat. This recipe doesn't call for any egg, oil or flour.

Ingredients: yields six 7 cm diameter cakes

❤ Rice flour for baking
70 g
❤Cocoa powder
30 g
❤ Sugar
50 g
❤ Baking powder
1 teaspoon
Soy milk
130 ml
Chocolate chips
30 g


1. Put the ❤ ingredients in a bowl and mix well with a whisk. Make sure there are no lumps left.
2. Pour in the soy milk, and when it has blended in, add the chocolate chips.
3. Place cupcake liners in the ramekins and pour in the batter. Steam them for about 10 minutes over strong heat, and you're done.
4. I decorated them with candied chocolate hearts. You can store them by wrapping them in cling wrap once they have cooled.

Story Behind this Recipe

I tried making various sweets with rice flour, but it didn't seem to match well with oil, which I assumed was a necessary ingredient. It's really light with rice flour, so I added cocoa powder and soy milk, which has just the right amount of fat. It's really delicious!
