Sesame Wheat Steamed Donuts 芝麻全麥蒸面包

These little steamed donut bread had caught my attention as they looked pretty adorable.
Using wholemeal flour & sesame seeds for part of the ingredients, these donut bread were actually quite healthy as well. But I do not have wholemeal flour at home, I replaced it with wheat flour instead. The wholemeal flour will give the donut bread a little brownish in color whereas mine is not due to the wheat flour.
This full recipe is about to yeild about 12-15, 5-cm donut size.
Coat the donut tray with canola oil and sprinkle some sesame seeds on it. Pipe the batter in about 3/4 full as the bread will rise.
Miss B, this is how I steamed my cakes... hehehehe. Using my wok and a metal rack:-p
All ready to be tested... I wasn't too sure if this steamed bread will be yummy by the look of them...
And they were yum yum indeed!! A soft texture. Nothing fanciful but just a small little donut, and it's healthy steamed bread makes it all. Plus the sesame seeds on the top and bottom of the bread, it was fantastic.
Recipe as adapted from 杯子蒸面包 by Akemi Komatsuzaki

Ingredients:
1 egg
40g sugar
60ml milk
100g wholemeal flour (I used wheat flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp canola oil + a little for greasing the pan
2 tbsp sesame seeds(can use black sesame seeds)

Method:
1. Grease the donut pan with oil and sprinkle half of the sesame seeds into the pan. Set aside.
2. Whisk the egg, sugar & milk untill well-combined.
3. Fold in the flour+baking powder, mix well.
4. Add in the oil and mix until well blended.
5. Transfer the batter into a piping bag and fill the pan about 3/4 full. Sprinkle the balance sesame seeds onto of the batter.
6. Steam over medium fire for about 12-15 mins.

  3. oh, that's brilliant! My wok is too small and shallow, can't fit in a muffin pan. What is the diameter of your wok?

    This is a pretty healthy donut recipe, better than those store-bought sugar-laden donuts!
