With these cute little steamed cupcakes, I continue my around the World baking trip, which I started without any intention, but never the less enjoy enormously. I have recently been to Sweden, Israel, Mexico and Austria, and today I am bringing a taste of Japan. There are so many ways to combine and decorate them, but I liked the dotted version best.
300 g plain flour
160 g sugar
140 ml milk
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
3 teaspoons baking powder
Makes 10 to 12 cupcakes, depends on a cupcake case size.
Pipe some batter into a cupcake case (1/3 capacity), top it with a teaspoon of jam, then cover with more batter (3/4 capacity). Make dots with the opposite coloured batter.
Place the ramekins in the saucepan with boiling water, then bring the heat down. Steam for 9 to 11 minutes over medium temperature. A toothpick should come out clean when they are done.
Take them out of the ramekins and and let them cool. repeat the process until all the batter is used.
