Milo Mushi-Pan (Steamed cakes)

Quick and easy steamed mini cakes.  I've not made any steamed cakes other than some steamed kuehs. Tried this steamed Mushi-Pan once recently and liked the soft texture.  Made some again and added some Milo to it.


Recipe adapted from :Cookpad
My slightly modified version below with added Milo powder.
Milo Mushi-Pan (Steamed Cakes) 
Ingredients (A)
70 grams Cake flour (sifted)
25 grams Milo
4 grams baking powder 

Ingredients (B)
2 tablespoons Honey
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4  tablespoons Yogurt
1 Egg 

1) Prepare the steamer. Cover the lid with cloth to prevent steam from dripping on to the cake.

2) In a clean bowl, whisk and combine ingredients (A).

3) In a large measuring cup or bowl mix ingredients (B) well. Pour ingredients (B) to (A) and whisk till combined with a manual whisk.

4) Fill the cupcake cases to 3/4 full. (If using thin paper or foil, place it inside a cup or other heat proof container to hold the shape).

5) Steam on high heat for about 12 minutes. 

Check for doneness with a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin. If it comes out clean, it's done.
