Steamed sponge cake is a great recipe for something simple yet tasty. It's even easier to make than cookies, if you'll believe that!
Beat the egg whites until peaks form, and then gradually beat in the sugar until very stiff. Beat in the egg yolks. Sift the flour and baking powder over the egg mixture and stir thoroughly. Divide the mixture among 12 paper cupcake cups or greased, glass custard cups. Place on a rack in a large saucepan and add water to just below the level of the rack. Cover, bring to a boil and let steam over low heat for 20 minutes or until cakes are set. Serve hot or cold.
