- In a separate bowl beat the eggs until foamy. Next slowly add egg mixture to the flour mixture. Mix well.
- Now add coconut treacle (treacle is a coconut liquid, it’s brown in color and similar to molasses), cinnamon and water. Whisk until the batter is smooth. Cover the batter and allow to rest 30 minutes.
- Next pour the batter into a 6 inch round pan lined with oil or parchment paper. Now place the cake into a steamer. Close the lid and steam the cake for 40 minutes (high heat). During this period, do not open the lid. After 40 minutes test cake by inserting a toothpick. It is done if the toothpick comes out clean and dry.
