Steamed fruit cupcakes are better than real fruit.
Fruits Steamed Bread
Steamed Bun Batter:
150g cake flour
1tsp baking powder
1tbsp vegetable oil
Food coloring (yellow, red, orange, green, black）
A pinch of black sesame seeds
1 cookie stick
1 mint leaf
Mix all the ingredients for the Steamed Bread Batter. Set the batter aside.
Divide the batter and mix in the food colorings to make 6 different colored batters (yellow, red, orange, green, yellow-green and black). Take half of the red batter and mix in black sesame seeds. Transfer each batter to pastry bags.
Apple: fill cupcake liner 8/10 full with the yellow batter, and pipe the red batter on top.
Melon: fill cupcake liner 8/10 full with the orange batter and pipe in the yellow-green batter.
Draw in lines with the white batter on top of the yellow-green batter.
Watermelon: fill cupcake liner 7/10 full with the red batter with black sesame seeds. Pipe the white batter on top first and then green batter second. Draw lines with the black batter and run a toothpick through the lines in a swirling motion to create the marbling effect.
Steam for at least 15 minutes over high heat or until a bamboo skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Insert the cookie stick in the apple steamed bun and decorate with mint leaf. Enjoy!
