I began googling for recipes using black sesame... and that brought me Florence's blog who's also in my blog list. Black sesame steamed cupcakes-- oohh that's perfect! Just what I'm looking for, a simple recipe that can be done without much hassle. I spent much time though trying to smash the black sesame paste which had turned dry at the bottom after storing in the fridge for a months.
The cake turned out great! It was not too sweet, with a subtle black sesame taste. Somehow steam cake is a hit with older generations. Hubby's parents and my parents love it, despite the unattractive colour. I thought they would not be receptive to new flavours (their favourite would be those good'o steamed egg sponge cakes!) :) Do take note that steam sponge cakes doesn't keep well, probably due to the moisture from the steaming so it's best to finish it within two days. ;)
