---12" or 14" inch round cake tin depending on how thick you want the sponge to be :) ---

2.)add the eno and baking powder to the above and transfer to round cake tin immediately.
3.)place tin over the rim of the pot of boiling water(cover with Foil) and the lid of the pot placed upside down ... Steam for 45mins (DO NOT open before 45mins as this will cause the Kaman to flop)

INFO & TIPS
1.) A round cake tin that fits on the rim of a pot (should be able to stand on the rim and not fall in).
2.) Pot should be filled halfway with boiling water before placing the cake tin on the rim. (I also add citric acid to the boiling water so that the pot doesn't blacken)
