Steamed Cheddar Cheese Cupcakes

  For the past one year, I have been trying out numerous steamed cheese cupcakes recipes. However, all ended up in disappointment. The cupcakes shrunk after cooling down and the texture was dense. Surprisingly, my son didn’t mind it at all. He said the taste was good. He ate most of my failed cupcakes as a way of showing his appreciation for my efforts. How wonderful to have such a loyal supporter!!   Despite...

Double Chocolate Muffins

  Chocolate is my son’s best friend. Whatever I baked that has chocolate in it will definitely please him more than anything else. However, I don’t bake with chocolate that often as I don’t want to over-indulge him with it.   These double chocolate muffins are something that my son has been looking forward to all these while. As his final exam was just over recently, I thought it would be a...

Steamed Banana Cupcakes

  My steamed muffins and cupcakes recipes have been gaining popularity among my readers particularly two groups. The first group is those who have no oven while the second group comprises mommies who prefer steaming to baking. They love these recipes so much so that they have been requesting me to post more of such recipes on my blog.   In a way to thank their kind support, here is another MUST TRY...

Orange Cranberry Wheat Germ Muffins

  Lately, I have been reading up on wheat germ (小麦胚芽) and am amazed by the long list of nutrients it contains. Although tiny in size, it is packed with protein, vitamin E, folic acid, phosphorus, thiamine, zinc and magnesium. It is also a good source of dietary fiber. Hence, it would be great to incorporate wheat germ into our diet. You can add it into smoothies, milk shakes, granola, muffins,...

Steamed Chocolate Banana Cupcakes

  Chocolate has long been termed as a “bad guy” that may cause a number of health issues, including acne, obesity, tooth decay, hyperactivity and diabetes. Does this mean that our kids should stay away from chocolate? Of course not if we are talking about dark chocolate. It can still be part of your child’s diet if you allow him to consume it moderately on an occasion basis. For a healthier choice,...

Orange Date Walnut Muffins

  Does your child like muffins? My son does. He will beam from ear to ear whenever he sees me busy making muffins in the kitchen. He has been my loyal muffin supporter from day one I learned making homemade muffins. Sometimes, he will request me to bake some for him to bring to school which makes me love making muffins even more.   Making muffins is indeed easy and has the highest rate of success...

Apple muffins

  Apple is an excellent fruit to be introduced to babies and toddlers because it’s tasty, unlikely to cause allergy, easy-to-digest and packed with nutrients such as vitamin C, dietary fiber and flavonoids quercetin. In addition, it’s also very versatile and provides remarkable flavour and texture for cooking and baking.   My son is a great fan of apples but not I. Strangely, I have a current...

Coconut banana muffins

  My hubby and I are great fans for coconuts but our 6 year-old son is definitely not. Early this year, he tasted steamed nian gao (年高, a sticky cake served during Chinese New Year) coated with fresh coconut flakes for the first time. Within minutes, he threw up. Whew! that was scary! It made me wonder if the taste of fresh coconut flakes is really that terrible to him. Until now, I still couldn’t...

Japanese steamed sausage cakes

  Mushi-pan ( 蒸しパン ), literally translated as steamed cupbread. But if you ask Uncle Google, you will also find it being associated with buns, cakes or muffins. Personally, I like to call it a “cake” as its texture is closer to a light version of mini cupcake, but not as dense and chewy as the tradition Chinese prosperity cakes (“fatt gou/ huat kueh” 发糕). I must say that mushipan is...

Steamed pumpkin muffins

  My family had a wonderful time during our recent holidays. We went to Kuala Lumpur first, then to Cameron Highlands and lastly ended in Penang. The only regret was that our duration in Penang was too short to cover our usual to-eat (no, must-eat) list. Just thinking of this food heaven, my stomach has already started rumblimg….oh my! I will share with you some photos I had taken during our Cameron...
