Yes, you can steam bake in an electric oven. There are many bread recipes which require a 'spritz' of water from a spray bottle every few minutes, and this can be done safely in an electric oven, as well as a gas oven, too. Simply spritz the water using a couple of quick sprays, then shut the oven door immediately to prevent the steam from escaping.

If it's something else you're baking and want to use a pan of water below it to prevent the bottom from becoming too brown, this can be safely done if both types of ovens, too.
