  1. Steaming is a great and healthy way to go. And incorporating this is chocolate cakes was a great idea. My family love the recipe (a similar one) and they are very picky about food!

  2. Do steamed cakes have less calories than baked cakes?

  3. Melissa, maybe because you use less oil. At least, you may be certain they have less “bad” fats processed under high temperature.
