Steamed banana muffins

Instead of the usual baking, I thought I'd give steaming a go. I admit I'm quite skeptical with steaming. After all, who doesn't like baked goods, right?

I managed to nab myself a good deal with a grocer trying to get rid of his overripe bananas. You can bet I was elated about that.

Recipe adapted from Amanda.

Ingredients: (Makes 6 medium sized muffins)
  • 1 egg
  • 45g brown sugar
  • 2 overripe bananas, mashed
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • pinch of baking soda
  • 30mL oil
  1. Sift together flour, baking soda and baking powder then set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar till ribbon stage.
  3. Mix in mashed bananas, beat till combine.
  4. Gently fold in flour mixture and oil, taking care not to deflate the eggs and sugar mixture.
  5. Pour atter into muffin pan, lined with muffin cups.
  6. Steam over high heat for 15mins or till an inserted skewer comes out clean.

It turned out very soft and fluffy. Definitely a good change from the normal baking. :)
