Mix flour, baking powder and salt and sift over egg mixture, folding in lightly. Pour into slightly greased pan or a pan sprayed with a food release. Steam for 20 minutes. Before serving, sift powdered sugar over cake. COMMENTARY: In steaming foods, condensed steam can be prevented from dripping into the item being steamed by placing a dish cloth under the lid.
