Panda & Brown Bear Steamed Cupcakes

This is another steamed cute cupcakes from Junko's recipe book :D The outline looks rather ugly 'cos of my shaky hands hehehe but still resembles panda right? :P




Steamed Panda Cupcakes
Ingredient (4 medium cupcakes)
  • 100gm pancake premix
  • 1 egg
  • 30gm sugar
  • 30gm yoghurt
  • 30ml milk
  • 15gm melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp cake flour
  • 1 tsp charcoal powder
  • raisins for filling (optional)

Method
  1. Whisk egg and sugar till sugar dissolved.
  2. Stir in yoghurt and milk.
  3. Sift in pancake premix.
  4. Stir in melted butter.
  5. Scoop out another 1 tsp plain batter and mix with 1/2 tsp charcoal powder.
  6. Scoop out 1 tbsp plain batter and mix with 1/2 tsp cake flour.
  7. Pipe 4 pairs panda ears onto a lined baking sheet, steam over preheated steamer for 3 mins. 
  8. Line 4 muffin cups, fill 1/3 plain batter into the cups. Place in your favourite fillings. Top with more plain batter till 80% full. Tap the cups lightly on surface to remove air bubbles.
  9. Use step (5) batter and pipe out the eye & nose outline.
  10. Use step (6) batter and pipe out the white eye.
  11. Steam over preheated steamer on low heat for 15 mins until cook through. Wrap the steamer lid with a cloth to prevent condensation. 

The chocolate brown bear turned out disastrous hahaha...yet to be fully cooked but already crack so badly >.<"

2nd attempt on brown bear steamed cupcakes! Not giving up hahaha...I've actually reduced the cocoa powder and using very low heat, but still only one turns out perfect! sigh....Seems like whenever cocoa powder is mixed into the pancake mix the batter structure is not as stable as the plain cupcake base. Attempting this recipe again?? Maybe with another flavour before I give up on this recipe if it fails on me again :P
