It's been a while since I posted any recipes. I know I had a few I wanted to write up but can't remember what they were anymore. I have been having fun making mushi-pan (steamed bread)! It's the only baking I can do because I don't have an oven.



Brown Sugar Chocolate Mushi-pan

Ingredients for 8:
100g  brown sugar
200g  (weak) flour
2 tsp  baking powder
190~200ml  milk
pinch of salt
milk chocolate, chopped (or chocolate chips)

Directions:
  1. In a bowl, sift together flour and baking powder. 
  2. Add sugar and milk, whisking together.  Batter should be relatively thick and smooth.
  3. Spoon mixture into lined muffin cups until just over half full and top with chopped pieces of chocolate. 
  4. Arrange in the steamer and cover the lid with a cloth to keep water from dripping on the mushi-pan.  Steam over high heat for 10~12 minutes.
Original recipe here.



Matcha Mushi-pan

Ingredients for 5:
100g  pancake mix
1  egg
3 tbsp  milk
2 tsp  matcha powder
60g  sugar
(sugared beans -- I don't like beans so I used chocolate but it didn't work very well.)

Directions
  1. In a bowl, combine the egg, milk and sugar with a whisk.
  2. Add the pancake mix and matcha, stirring well.  Batter should be thick and smooth.  Add more matcha if you like!
  3. Spoon mixture into lined aluminum muffin cups.  If you fill each cup 3/4 full, you can stretch the batter to make 6.
  4. Arrange in the steamer and cover the lid with a cloth to keep water from dripping on the mushi-pan.  Steam over high heat for 12~15 minutes.
Original recipe here.

Both recipes take no time to prepare at all!  I tried another recipe for the brown sugar one but it didn't work out well.  That was before I got a proper scale so maybe I should try again.  Mushi-pan is quite dense but both of these recipes are come out really moist and soft and おいちい~  If you've got a steamer at home, give them a try!  All you need is something to rest the mushi-pan on over boiling water.  I have one that fits into a pot (a) or you can get inserts that are also used to steam vegetables (b).

I get this brown sugar mushi pan from the store which is lfdkjdffff so good that's why I wanted to make my own. They aren't as good as that one from the store but its so satisfying to eat something you made yourself. :3 The matcha ones are awwesomeeee.

Should be easy to find at Isetan or Takashimaya~ But maybe it's expensive? The small package I bought was 525 yen but you only need a little at a time.

HAHA I just finished watching Uta Oni~ And was like "WTF 誰だ? 知らねぇ~" Haha. I have to say while it was an enjoyable drama, it's no award winner. But Ohno is hot, even in silver pantaloons.

You should try them! They were super easy. Takes about 10 minutes to get them together to cook. That's all!

Those look soooooo good. *_*

I have a feeling I'm going to wind up crying because I won't be able to bake conventionally - I do it fairly regularly here and I'm going to miss it ;o;

I guess the first thing for me to do is buy a steamer so I can try these XD

Yes! I got my one at Donki for about 2000 yen. It's a stew/pasta pot too so it's quite useful. Just a bit big. :/ So it lives on my floor because I have no cupboard space for it.
