Nutella Blossoms

Nutella Blossoms 彩绘蒸鸡蛋糕


  • Total Time: 37 minutes
  • Yield: 12 Mini Cupcakes 1x

Description

A basic steamed cupcake recipe that uses whipping of whole eggs.


Ingredients

Scale

Cupcakes

  • 1 egg
  • 90 g cake or top flour*
  • 70 g sugar*
  • 50 ml milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Filling

  • Nutella, kaya, jam, etc

Drawing

  • 1/4 tsp charcoal powder (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place egg and sugar in your mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed for a few mins before switching to high speed to beat the egg mixture till light and fluffy. I beat until ribbon stage 🙂
  2. Add in milk and mix well. Sift flour and baking powder into the mixture and mix lightly till well combined. You can do so in 2 or 3 batches. If you would like to draw on the nutella blossom like I did, reserve 3/4 tsp of batter in a small bowl. Add in charcoal powder and mix well. Place into piping bag, snip off a small opening for piping.
  3. Spoon or pipe into cupcake cases half way, add in a dollop of filling, before covering with some more cake batter, till 80% full. Pipe pattern on the top of cake batter if you wish.
  4. Steam over medium low heat (or medium heat if your steamer is big) for about 7-9 mins.
  5. Remove from steamer once done and leave to cool.

Notes

I am using Prima’s unbleached top flour. Most top/cake flour is bleached, and not so good for health in the long run, so do check the ingredient list or packaging. I am also using Bob Red Mill’s aluminum free baking powder.

 

You can reduce sugar to 60g if you want it to be less sweet. I used only 50g of sugar so as to reduce sugar intake for my child 🙂
