Steamed Chocolate Cupcake 蒸巧克力杯子蛋糕


I just came back a week ago from a 2-week home trip back to Singapore, that explains my absence for the past few weeks. Managed to squeeze in some time to meet up with a few friends and ex-colleagues and did some shopping for baking stuff from Phoon Huat. I tried to explore the new Circle Line but only went as far as Holland V.  I was pleasantly surprised to find a Phoon Huat branch outlet so near to the new Holland V station, so I bought quite a few things there - a small pullman loaf tin, a 7-inch square baking tin, a plastic curry puff mould, aluminium tart moulds, chicken pie moulds, paper muffin cups, lactone powder and green tea powder. I was so happy to lug my newly acquired treasures all the way back to Belgium (thank god they were not too heavy) to add to my baking supplies back home. :)

So here are some steamed chocolate cupcakes baked in my newly acquired muffin cups. Now that I have finally stocked up on paper muffin cups, I can finally bake more muffins and cupcakes and huat kuehs... :)

My little boy (he is nearly 2.5 years old now) is crazy about these steamed chocolate cupcakes. I made 9 of them and he finished 5 of them during breakfast 2 days in a row. :)


Recipe adapted from Alex Goh's Magic Steamed Cakes

Ingredients A
3 eggs
150g sugar (reduced to 130g)
1/4 tsp salt
100g corn oil

Ingredients B
100g orange juice

Ingredients C
180g flour
20g cocoa powder
1 tsp sodium bicarbonate
2.5 tsp double action baking powder (reduced to 2 tsp)

Method
1. Whip A until sugar dissolves and slightly thickens. Add in B, mix until well blended.

2. Fold in sieved C, mix until well combined.

3. Pour into greased and lined 9.5 cm cupcake moulds. (I used paper muffin cups so there is no need to grease or line them. This recipe makes about 9-10 cupcakes, and each paper cup is filled with about 3 tablespoonfuls of batter.)

4. Steam for 25-30 min.
