Steam Chocolate Cupcakes 蒸可可小蛋糕

The kiddos often complain hungry in the afternoon, lack of any snack to offer today, I decided to make some cuppies to fill up their ever-grumbling tummies.

They gracefully offered to help up (more like mess up) and it only took about 40 minutes before we sat down to enjoy our delicious homemade treats.

The steam cuppies were fluffy and soft, Little E liked it so much that he munched up 3 cuppies before I managed to stop him from sneaking another one...

Cuppies, anyone?

So fluffy...

Preparation Time: 25 Minutes
Steaming Time: 18-20 min
Serving size: 12 medium cupcakes 


• 120g all purpose flour 120克普通面粉
• 20g unsweetened Cocoa powder 20克无糖可可粉 (I used Hershey's cocoa)
• 1 tbsp baking powder 1茶匙发粉
• 180g unsalted butter 180克无盐牛油 (cut into cubes 切小方块)
• 70g granulated or brown sugar 70克幼糖 (我用粗黄糖)
• 3 medium eggs 蛋三颗

The Method:
1. Using a mixer, blend butter cubes and sugar on high speed until well mixed. Add the eggs one at a time. 


2. Sieve flour, cocoa powder and baking powder into a clean bowl, then add into the butter mixture, mix well on medium speed until you get a creamy texture.

3. Scoop equal amount of dough into the cupcake holders - until about 3/4 full.

4. Place the cupcake holders over a steamer with lid closed, steam on high heat for 18-20 minutes.

5. Once done, remove from stove and let cold before eating. You may keep them in an air tight container for later consumption, the cuppies were still soft and fluffy when we had them for tea time the next day.
