These treats may look like muffins, but as you might have guessed they’re not. These steamed cakes, are called as Mushi-pan in Japanese. The biggest difference between these cakes and muffins is that these delicious little treats are steamed instead of baked. You may think an oven is needed to make fluffy cakes but, these Steamed Cupcakes are super pillowy and just scrumptious. If you haven’t tried a steamed cupcake recipe before, here’s your chance. You’re going to love it!

What is a Steamed Cake (Mushi-pan)?

The Japanese steamed cakes are made with very simple ingredients like flour (maida or cake flour), baking powder, eggs, milk, sugar, and neutral-flavored oil (such as vegetable oil). While Chinese steamed bun called Mantou uses yeast as a leavening agent, Japanese steamed cakes use baking powder.

How to make these eggless steamed milk cupcakes?

Eggless Steamed Milk CupCakes | Blooming CupCakes | Japanese Mushi Pan | with step by step photos and video. Often called Blooming Cupcakes, these petite spongy cakes are cooked in a steamer rather than an oven. This recipe uses evaporated milk. I am using the store bought evaporated milk cans. If you do not have these at home, then simmer 1 cup of full fat milk to 1/2 cup over a low flame with continuous stirring. This is further mixed with oil, sugar and curd. If you like to have an egg version of this recipe, use 1 egg instead of 1/4 cup curd.

Once the wet ingredients are ready, then sieve the dry ingredients and fold the batter. These are further steamed over a very low flame for 12 to 15 minutes.

However, homemade steamed cakes are equally delicious and you can play around with various flavors. Unlike store-bought cakes, there are no preservatives and additives. These healthy steamed cakes are soft and easy to digest, so they are perfect for small children!
