Bake Along #16 - Black Glutinous Rice Flour Steamed Brownies

I've eaten this brownies which is very popular in Indonesia, it was quite sometime back and was hooked by the taste and texture
I managed to find the flour in Indonesia, it's easily found in any baking shops anywhere. It's possible to make the flour but it's too troublesome to me
Finally I could make this yummy brownies :)

Original recipe uses chocolate rice as filling, I used shaved dark chocolate and grated cheddar cheese, yum!
Chocolate and cheese.. perfect combination I can never live without :)

Recipe is from Ricke's site

What you need:

6 eggs
200g sugar
1 tsp ovalette (optional)
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp sweet condensed milk
250g black glutinous rice flour
20g cocoa powder
100g chopped dark chocolate
200g canola oil (or melted butter)

enough shaved dark chocolate (or chocolate rice)
enough grated cheddar cheese
  1. Heat up steamer, wrap the cover with clean cloth. Sieve black glutinous rice flour and cocoa powder together, set aside. Grease pan, line with baking paper and grease on top. I used 2 pans of rectangle brownies pans sized approximately 20 x 10 x 4cm
  2. Melt chopped chocolate together with oil, mix well and let cool
  3. Beat eggs, sugar, ovalette and salt on high speed til ribbon stage. Lower speed, add in vanilla, mix well, followed by condensed milk, mix well
  4. Add in sifted flour gradually on low speed til well mixed (not so long, around 1 minute)
  5. Add in 1/3 of the batter into the chocolate and oil mixture, fold in til evenly mixed and then pour to the remaining batter, fold in gently
  6. Divide the batter into two, pour one portion to the pan, steam on medium fire for 10 minutes, sprinkle chocolate and cheese on top, followed by pouring the remaining one portion of the batter, let continue steaming for 25 minutes
  7. Remove from steamer and take out from the pan immediately, let cool on the cooling rack
This brownies is considered fudgy type, even though it's not as rich as those baked fudgy brownies
Taste chocolaty, and even though the batter feels sandy cos of the type of flour used, but the brownies doesn't have any sandy texture at all
Soft, and easy to eat, really addictive.. I definitely will make this again :)
And it's good to know that oil is used instead of butter, and the flour is definitely much healthier than just normal plain flour

This brownies is dedicated to Bake Along No. 16 : Theme - Brownies

  1. Alice,

    Your brownies is so moist and intense in its chocolaty colour. I wonder if the use of black glutinous rice flour or/and steaming make this brownies so moist. Before reading your post, I didn't know that this brownies is very popular in Indonesia. I'm glad that I've learn a lot of new brownies knowledge through you and this bake-along.

  2. oh.... no sandiness at all?
    I hope that the BGR flour that I have will work out with this.
    My last encounter making chiffon cake with it was not well recieved due to its sandiness.

  3. Wow! This is such an interesting and unique brownies recipe! I've never tried chocolate and cheese combination before, I've always thought it'd taste weird... but your brownies look so delicious that I want to try it one day! (:

  4. hi alice, heard about the black glutinuos flour..i've got no experience of that but judging from here, it looks like it has been a good and wonderful bake with them and the fillings sounds delicious!

  5. Chocolate and cheese? Interesting combination. These brownies look really good, I wish I could try a piece. I've never baked with black glutinous rice flour.

  6. Your brownies look really moist and chocolaty! The black glutinous rice flour is an interesting ingredient!
    Thank you for sharing and for baking along with us! Have a nice day!

  7. hi Zoe, thks :)
    i guess besides the steaming method, its also the use of melted dark chocolate and oil makes this brownies moist
    i doubt if it's cos of the flour
    yes, this brownies is popular in Indonesia, particularly in Bandung where this idea first came out :)

    hi Wendy,
    yes it's not sandy, but if you eat it cold, you can feel it a little more sandy... eating this warm is the best :)
    i havent tried to bake chiffon cake with this flour, i think the ingredients accompany the flour play some parts too...

    hi Jasline, thks :)
    hope u like this... i always adore chocolate cheese combination :)

    hi Lena, thks :)
    my family loves this :)
