Steamed Cake with Fruit Compote

My second recipe for No Bake Desserts theme is a cake. This is a steam cake, yes you can steam a cake. This steam cakes are not like baked cakes in texture. Steam cakes are more moist, when you serve the cake with a fruit compote that will turn in to a delicious dessert. You can also serve any one chopped fruit and top with whipped cream
