Steam soft banana cake and Sardine Puff

I told ya that i hv been busy in the kitchen lol.. so ok since my mission today was to make use of what i hv in my fridge.. i decided to use up the mashed bananas that i had prepared a few days ago.. I dont feel like baking muffin nor banana cake this time round.. had wanted to try and bake banana cookies but not too sure if everyone will like it sooooo i decided to try out aunty yochana steamed soft banana cake... 

We like the taste of this cake.. super soft and not overly sweet... light and easy just like our all time fav radio station hahahha

200 gm. mashed banana
1/8 tsp. vanilla essence
1 tsp. Bicarbonate of soda
a pinch of salt

3 small eggs
100 gm. brown sugar
100 gm. Hong Kong flour (u can use pao or superfine flour)
1 tsp. Baking powder
65 gm. cornoil

Top Layer
2 eggs
60 gm. sugar
25 gm. water
65 gm. Hong Kong flour (u can use superfine or pao flour)

(1) Mix all the ingredients (A) together and set aside.
(2) Whisk eggs and sugar together till fluffy, add in flour and baking powder and mix till well combined. Add in mashed bananas mixture and cornoil and stir till well combined.
(3) Pour into a greased and lined loaf pan and steam for 15 to 20 mins till cooked.
(4) For topping: Whisk eggs and sugar till fluffy, add in water and flour and mix till well mixed.. (fold in flour and mix gently) Pour on top of steamed banana cake and steam again for another 15 mins or till cooked.
(5) Serve

Had baked sardine puff for the family to munch in the evening.. aarghhhhh this is what happens when Hairi is home... I am constantly preparing something in the kitchen.. thank god for  Aircon!! hehehe

No recipe cos really all u need to prepare in advance is sambal sardine (sardine cooked with chilli paste) and instant puff pastry.. cut pastry into squares.. fold all four sides to the center and brush each puff with egg yolk.. bake it in preheated oven of 175C for 20mins..

Can i use normal flour coz i can't find the funky flour(s) that you mention. oh stupid europe!

Rima said...

HK flour is low gluten bleached flour.. also used in making Pao.. do u guys hv cake flour there?? I am not too sure if u can use all purpose flour but u can definately subtitute it with cake flour or any superlite flour..
