Steamed Corn Cake Cups

After all that baking and feeling sinful, I had decided to try a less sinful way of making cakes. Steamed cakes.

Referencing this recipe,, I steamed my first batch of Steamed Corn Cake Cups.

Prep time
12 mins
Cook time
8 mins
Total time
20 mins
Makes 4 steam cakes

  1. ½ cup (75g) all purpose flour
  2. 1 tsp. baking powder
  3. 1 egg
  4. 2 Tbsp. milk
  5. 2 Tbsp. sugar
  6. 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  7. ¼ cup corn kernels
  8. ¼ cup shredded cheese
  1. In a medium bowl, combine flour and baking powder
  2. Whisk them about 20 times (This is a shortcut method for sifting).
  3. In a small bowl, whisk egg, milk, sugar, and vegetable oil together until combined.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and mix until smooth.
  5. Add corn & cheese and mix until combined.
  6. Pour the mixture into the cupcake liners.
  7. Place the glass ramekins in steamer and cook covered on medium heat for 8 minutes. They're done when a skewer comes out clean without wet batter.
  8. Turn off the heat and remove the ramekins from the pan and let them cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Personally, I don't find it very successful. Hence I'm going to try another recipe for the next round. 

The Steamed Corn Cake Cups came out a little too hard. I guess alot more whisking is required at the egg portion. (Did a search online for the reason why my Steamed Corn Cake Cups are not soft and fluffy enough)

But I do enjoy my first batch of Steamed Corn Cake Cups. They taste pretty nice, just that the recipe needs more adjustments. To try again =D
