Blossom Steamed Pumpkin Muffin 开花的蒸南瓜满分


Lucius从上个星期四清晨开始就持续发烧。每当药力退了后烧又回来。过去几天他的胃口还好,我并不特别担心,但是星期天开始他的进食量突然少很多,几乎没有什么吃到solid food,奶也喝得很少,每次只喝60ml左右。


我蒸了一些南瓜本来是要用来做煮pasta给他吃,但看他胃口这么差应该吃不下pasta,于是我想用来做点小点心,心想他应该会喜欢。

满分热乎乎出炉时让Lucius尝尝,可惜他只吃了一点就不吃了。这满分带南瓜的清甜和鲜奶的奶香,要是平时他肯定吃不够。


南瓜天然的橙黄色也为这满分加分不少,看着这些颜色鲜艳的满分心情也不知不觉开朗起来。看它们笑得多开心,这个满分还能用来代替发糕,好吃漂亮还营养加分。


写于9月20日- 昨天一整天到今早Lucius已经没有再发烧,但是可能是吃了太多药他的手脚很冰冷。另外,他还是继续流鼻涕和咳嗽,几乎没有什么进展,看来要带他看多一次医生。】


Blossom Steamed Pumpkin Muffin

Ingredients:
(A)
1 large egg
87g sugar (adjust according to the sweetness of pumpkin)
¼ tsp salt
(B)
100g fresh milk (adjust according to the wetness of pumpkin)
30g vegetable oil
125g pumpkin flesh (steamed and mashed with a fork)
(C)
200g cake flour (plain flour works as well)
1 ½ tsp baking powder

Method:
1) Pre-heat steamer. In a mixing bowl, beat (A) with a hand whisk until sugar dissolved.
2) Add (B) in sequence, mix well.
3) Fold in sifted (C), mix with a rubber spatula till just incorporated.
4) Spoon the batter (batter should be very thick) into lined mould (I use combination of silicone cups and ramekins) until 80-90% full.
5) Steamed on high heat for about 15-20 mins (depending on the size of your mould).
6) Once done, remove muffin from mould and cool on wire rack.

Note:
1) As the moulds I used are quite big, I only managed to make 6 muffins.
2) The muffin is a bit crumbly when it is just out from the steamer. It will become firmer when it has cooled down slightly.
3) Muffin remains soft on the next day without the need of re-steaming.

    鲸鱼,
    我好喜欢那个心形的,是用心形的ramekin蒸的。我也好喜欢这组照片的色彩,还借用了Lucius的盘和叉子,可惜照片有朦,因为拍照时已接近黄昏我没有开灯和开flash light。

    自从孩子去childcare centre后就常常生病,看到这么小就吃这么多药,很不愿意但又担心不吃药不会痊愈。

  12. Anonymous,

    Can you please leave your name?

    There are different kinds of huat kueh (some use baking powder, some use yeast, some use Eno, rice flour etc) so I am not sure you compare to which type. I would say this is similar to the type using baking powder but this is much softer and flavourful.

  13. oops , so sorry, this is octopusmum here...not sure if you remember me. i have asked u some questions in the past.... in my haste to send out the query, i have forgotten to put in my name...
    okay, i am referring to those traditional huat kueh made using gula melaka, those that are made by the older generation. i don't think bp is added to those...
    regards

  14. Hi octopusmum,

    Sure I know you :) I think the texture is different from traditional huat kueh, it's just like our baked muffin but steamed version :)

  15. HI Angel

    yes, agree with u that the texture is different from traditional huat kueh cause i made this last friday! the texture is much softer, sth i prefer. but i must remember not to over steam it next time, i was so worried that it was not cooked thru when there were still tiny crumbs sticking on the skewer...
    like this cause it is much healthier and v easy to make!
    thks for sharing the recipe...
    regards

  16. Hi octopusmum,

    U are welcome!

    The steaming time depends on the size of ur mould.

  17. Hi Angel, 我试做了可是失败了。不知道哪里出了问题,蒸出来不会发和开花,吃起来粘粘的像kueh。是鸡蛋打不够发吗?还是糖放太少呢?我只放了50g的糖。

  18. Hi Cha,

    假设你用的发粉没有失效,我怀疑以下两点(少放糖不会导致不发)。

    1) 搅拌过度。这个食谱拌一拌就可以拿去蒸了,不需一直搅拌到顺滑。拌好要马上蒸。
    2)水温不够热。一开始蒸时水就要煮到大滚。间中不可以开盖。
