Chocolate Moist Cake w Chocolate Fudge Topping

Who can resist this???
The chocolate cake is Moist, the topping is just nice, not too sweet. Very nicely presented!!!
Story behind the process:
I started to steam the cake at 8.30pm. According to the recipe, it should be done by 9.15pm.
But the batter was not set yet, still very sticky. I continued to add hot water, and steamed. Until 10pm, it has been 1 1/2 hour, still sticky. I wonder whether it is the problem that i never cover the steamer with lid.
To get it cooked faster, i changed my mind and put it into the oven. After baking for 40mins, the chocolatey smell was coming out from the kitchen, and it was DONE!!!
I was happy enough with the result, at least i didn't make a failed cake after working for the whole night. I prepared the chocolate fudge topping (i halve the recipes, make it less sweet for kids).
After taking the photo for the beautiful cake, it's already 11.20pm. Luckily i don't need to do the washing, just leave to KAKAK for the next morning. Or else, i can only go to bed after mid-night. ;p
This cake is worth trying.
