Steam Ladybug cupcake

When I first saw this cupcake was in Kak MaDiHae's blog. I was so impress by the cute little Ladybug steam cupcake. I tell myself I must try to do this one day...hehe don't know when yet.
Until I get to Kate from Sally's blog, I saw she join the Aspiring Bakers #13 with her 西施蛋糕. I too, want to join and I think I must try this Ladybug steam cupcake. I want to join Aspiring Baker #13 with this cupcake.
This is a soft and spongy cupcake. Nice and cute some more....^^

  21. Hi mum2mum,
    Sorry for late reply. : )
    Yes, this steamed cake has no oil nor butter/margarine.
    It's the ovallete that make the cake moist and soft.
    Please don't leave out the ovallete.
    Happy trying: )

    1. Hi Tulip mama,
      Thanks for compliment : )

      This cupcakes will be denser the next day.
      This cupcake is not the soft and fluffy type. It is more to moist, dense and tender type.

      I normally will let it cool on wire layer then keep it in a air tight container. It last for 2 days.
      Happy trying.

  23. May I know whether I can replace baking powder with baking soda?

  24. Hi Vivienne,
    Sorry for the late reply.
    I guess you could but you have to reduce the amount to 1 1/2 tsp. The taste will be not so nice I guess but if you can get baking powder it is much more better. The taste is nicer.

  25. Smitten by the cute pic of your ladybug cupcakes, I made the cupcakes today following your recipe. Sadly to say, the result was not very nice. All my cupcakes 'blossomed'..broken into 2-3 parts on top, they looked more like 'hua gao'.. For the 2nd batch, I lowered the fire, but still failed to get unbroken cupcakes. Any advice? Should I reduced the baking powder?

    1. Hi Yan Ying Lie,
      Sorry to hear that your cupcake didn't turn out well but at least it's a edible 'hua gao' .. LoL

      A little tips here, try not to over beat the cupcake batter. It's a light medium thick ribbon like flow batter. Use medium lower heat to steam.
      Please do hop over to this link
      http://youtu.be/MdfVQaGJYTYto see how I make this cupcakes. From the clip you can see how thick is the cupcake batter.
      Hope this does help :)
      Happy steaming!
