Steamed Layer Cream Cheese Cake

Hi there, sweethearts!

Another sweet thing that I made during last holiday, steamed layer cream cheese cake! The chocolate cake layer is absolutely soft, fluffy, and not too sweet (you might want to add more sugar I think), it's a perfect combination with the sweet cheesecake layer. Mom as usual is a fan of not-too-sweet cake, so she loves it so much. While for N, his first comment was "It's not sweet enough". Well, at least all of them eat the cake quite a lot so I know we all love it!

I was an impatient girl here. Actually I made 3 layers here, 2 chocolate layer and 1 cheese layer. But I can't wait much more to try it out, so I cut it while it's still a little bit warm, resulting the top chocolate layer to fall apart and too soft cheese layer. Don't be like me and try to chill it first to set. ;)

would the boiling water not cook the eggs? Is there any reason it should be boiling?
