In addition, I'm trying out Sunview's green organic raisins which I just purchased from the Four Seasons Organic Market Booth at the Baby Market Expo Fair ($5/per tin instead of the usual price at $7.80).
5. Scoop 3 tsps of batter into each cupcake liner.
Ingredients (makes 16 mini cupcakes):
1 cup of organic unbleached flour
2 tsp of baking powder
1/4 tsp of cinnamon powder
2 eggs, beaten
2 tsp of pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp of extra virgin coconut oil (EVCO)
4 tbsp of fresh milk (can substitute with breastmilk or formula milk)
4 tbsp of mashed banana (1.5 medium-sized bananas)
4 tbsp of Sunview green organic raisins
16 pieces of mini cupcake liners (Note: to prevent 'contamination' from the running colours caused by the liners, it may be better to buy plain white ones)
1. Place a pot / wok of water on the stove to boil.
2. While waiting for the water to boil, mix & sieve the dry ingredients, except raisins into a big bowl.
3. Combine the wet ingredients, pour into the big bowl, then mix well.
4. Add the raisins & mix into the batter.
6. Ensure the water is boiling "vigorously" before putting the cupcakes onto your steamer stand. Steam for 6 minutes under high heat & do not open the lid during the steaming process. Remove when ready & serve warm.
I used my wok for the steaming as my mini muffins tray couldn't fit into my pot. This time round, I didn't cover the cupcakes with a kitchen towel as its lid is too big. Thankfully, the cupcakes turned out fine too. I let BB self-feed himself as I did the second batch (remaining 4 cupcakes as my tray has only 12 holes). He ate four & actually asked for more but I didn't give in to his request as I did not want him to gorge himself silly..lolz! The main difference between the big & small cupcakes is that the small ones actually stick to the liners. I suspect it's due to the addition of bananas. Despite that, I prefer the smaller ones as I think they look really cute so I'll be sticking to them for now (~.<)
As for the raisins, I find that some of the Sunview's ones are pretty big as compared to Pureharvest. Furthermore, the raisins are not as sweet too. Thus, I'll choose Sunview over Pureharvest as I do not want to feed BB food that is too sweet in case he rejects blander food in the future.
