Steamed Moist Chocolate Cake 湿润蒸巧克力蛋糕

这款蒸巧克力蛋糕香浓湿润, 做了好几回了, 依旧吃得很过瘾! 
I've made this cake several times and it's always gorgeous.
This is super moist and absolutely rich chocolate cake, definitely a keeper!
Thanks to Crystal and Eileen for sharing this brilliant recipe :)
I removed the cake from the pan while it still hot, end up the cake cracks on the bottom and a little on top. I just too sad to see that so simply take few photos will do :(
