I have made this kind of steamed cupcakes many times, simply because my daughter loves them. I have tried several recipes, the last one which I like was from NCC site. However I found out that this one was too dense, so I tried to modify the recipe by reducing the quantity of flour and increasing the quantity of liquid, and came up with the final recipe which I stick to it ever since. This time I colored it with purple and pink as spring is here. Happy Spring every one!
275 granulated sugar
1.5 Tbsp ovalet/emulsifier
300ml clear/no color soda drink
375g all purpose flour
2tsp vanilla liquid
Beat the eggs, sugar and emulsifier at high speed until stiff. Lower the speed and stir in flour little by little and mix it well. Add soda drink and mix it well. Add the vanilla and mix it well again. Take two small portion of the batter and place it in two small bowls. Mix in the food coloring in each bowl. Pour the batter into the lined mould to the half height. Then add 2tsp of the colored batter. Do it for all the batter. Then steam them for 20min in a preheated steamer.
