“We were the people who were not in the papers. We lived in the blank white spaces at the edge of print. It gave us more freedom. We lived in the gaps between the stories.”

Basic Steamed Cake | Mushi-pan

The Japanese steamed cakes or mushi-pans are made with very simple ingredients: flour (all-purpose flour or cake flour), baking powder, eggs, milk, sugar, and neutral flavored oil (such as vegetable oil).
These healthy steamed cakes are soft and easy to digest, so they are perfect for small children as well!

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 8 tablespoon milk 
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 1 tablespoon neutral flavor oil
  1. Gather all the ingredients.
  2. In a bowl, combine all the dry ingredients - all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar and cocoa powder. Whisk well to combine
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the egg, oil and milk together until combined.
  4. In a bowl of dry ingredients make a well, pour the egg mixture and mix until smooth.
  5. In my part, I used llanera/liyanera as my molder.
  6. Then, divide the batter into the molder.
  7. Last, place the molder in the steamer and cook it for 8-10minutes.
  8. To check the doneness of the cake, insert a toothpick in the center and put it up, it must be clean and no cake base. 
Easy right?

Not bad for a first timer even it looks like an oversized-egg, I will do more soon and try the other flavors.
