Steamed Brown sugar cupcake / Brown sugar Huat kuih

This is the steamed brown sugar cupcake or Huat Kuih I made yesterday. Have been wanted to try my hands on steamed cake for quite a while. I finally made it yesterday. This cupcake is very easy to make.

For this is the first time I try to make steamed cake, "huat kuih", I just stick to the recipe (click here). Hopefully the cakes will smile mouth wide opened after steaming, the more "Huat" means more prosper.

the moulds
I used double decker steamer to steam 10 pieces of cupcakes. The ingredients are just enough to make 10 cupcakes.

The recipe says to steam the cake for 20 minutes, upon checking on my cakes after 20 minutes, my cake is not "smiling", i.e. the top part of the cake did not break open as they should be, I continue the steaming for another 20 minutes, there was not much difference after all.

Though the cakes did not "smile" as much, it does not affect the taste of the cake. Clet, the guinea pig for my cooking and cakes, gave compliment to it, supported by Crystal and Pearl whom both had 2 each of the cupcakes.
