Steam Hawflakes Velvet Cake (Kek Kukus Velvet Hawflakes)

I was doing dual jobs tonight - steaming the above cake and cooking mutton curry. Unlike the typical Sarawak layered cakes, the above cake is super easy and much faster to prepare and steam. The taste is good and surprisingly moist unlike others who tried theirs are fluffy & light - not sure what I did wrong but I like it that way. Half of the cake was gone the moment the cake was out of the steamer but got to stop my hubby & children otherwise it will spoil their appetite for dinner.

The recipe is by K.Fida (MyR) but taken from Ummi's house. Thanks to both of you for sharing.

(Makes 8" round)
5 Grade A Eggs
225g Sugar
220g Flour
1tsp BP
1 tbsp Ovalette
150ml Milk
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp EV
100g Veg Oil

1. Place all ingredients (except oil, color & hawflakes) in a mixer bowl.
Beat until fluffy & thick.
Fold in oil with spatula until well mixed.

2. Divide into 3 portions & color them as you like.
Spread 3 big scoops into lined & greased steaming tin.
Arrange hawflakes on top.
Steam for 5-7 minutes.
Repeat layering & steaming until finish.
Steam the last layer for 20 minutes.
