Lusog Notes

This Steamed Fruit Cake recipe is a source of iron, which is needed in the formation of red blood cells that carry oxygen in the body. Iron also plays a role in the proper functioning of the immune system.

Chef's Tip

Do not overmix the batter. Mix only until the dry ingredients are moistened. Overmixing causes the cake to become tough.
