Freshly and Lovingly Steamed on : 9th March 2014
I lost my family pet to Cancer last week. The decision to put her to sleep was so heart wrenching. I can imagine the fear that she had when she was being brought into the ” execution” room. She was calm because she does not want us to be upset. She was in pain yet she remained docile. She finished her food although she is not able to hold them in anymore so that we will not be worried. She kept silence and not a sound of whining from the excruciating pain because she does not want us to feel pain for her.
Such a small little lump of fat brought us such tremendous joy and also pain at the same time. I think this is the last time we will ever get a pet. Her partner is still with us and I prayed hard that he does not pass away soon after. We heard his cries for her everyday. He even teared when he is no longer able to find her any where in the house.
I was not in the mood to bake or steam anything, the oven is stll not working as well. Nevertheless, I thought I can bring a smile to my family with this. Japanese steamed cake. I drew her onto the cake using the baby picture of this cute lump of fat. It does not look exactly the same after it got steamed since it puffed up. So I have also included the before and after pictures for your comparision.
150g Pancake Mix
50g Granulated Sugar
1 Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
2 Tsp Baking Powder
110g Plain Yoghurt
75g Egg (beatened)
1 Tbsp Canola Oil
Mix all igredients together.
To create each colour batter, all you have to remember is to mix batter and flour in a 2:1 ratio.
Eg 2 tsp of batter to 1 tsp of plain flour. Then u add in the colouring according to your preference. You can draw any pictures onto the cake. Whatever your little heart desires.
Steam the cakes in a medium heat for 15 minutes.
