Cupcake Of D’ Week = Steamed Cake (蒸糕)

I was telling Agnes that i cant steam a nice good steam cake.

Cos i failed when i try to steam a big whole cake last 2 weeks , it turn out hard and “ugly”.

But i didn’t give up !! Cos i know i can do it !! 😛

And i love steam cake, it’s make me recall back when i

was lil kid, my grandma used to steam egg cake for me to eat .

Now is my turn to steam egg cake for my grandma .

Instead of steaming a big whole cake, i try to steam it in a small portion like Cupcake.

My first steam egg cake with black sesame

120g cake flour

I find that this is also a versatile recipe;

a variety of ingredients can be added as the taste of the cake is mild.

& is very suitable for old folk people, cos is not sweet !!
