Steamed banana cuppies

I've tried out a few steamed cake recipes before and resuts are mostly good. More importantly, steamed cakes are able to retain it's moisture better than baked ones.

I saw a steamed banana cake recipe at
Ching's blog and decided to try since I got some ripe bananas at my moms place. It's a very simple and fast recipe. The steamed cppies can be done in 30mins!

Made some modifications to the recipe and I'm putting it here for my own reference.
What you need
  • 2 mashed bananas
  • 1 tbsp of milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/8 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 5/8 cup veg oil
What to do
  • Start boiling the water in the steamer.
  • Sift the self-raising flour and baking soda tog. Set aside.
  • Mash the bananas and add in 1 tbsp of milk and vanilla essence. Mix well.
  • Beat eggs with sugar till ribbon stage.
  • Stop machine, stir in mashed banana mixture.
  • Fold in 1/3 of the sifted flour, followed by 1/2 the oil.
  • Fold in another 1/3 of the flour and then remaining 1/2 the oil. End off with the last 1/3 of the flour.
  • Scoop batter into liners till 3/4 full. (It actually dun rise much, so next time, I'll probably fill it till full)
  • When water is rapidly boiling, place in the filled liners and steam on high for 15mins.
