Beet sugar (or non-refined sugar such as cane sugar or maple sugar)
Vegetable oil (preferably nut-based)
Combine the beet sugar, soy milk, and oil. Mix well, then add the sifted flour and baking powder. Mix thoroughly, then fill aluminum cups or muffin tins with the batter up to about 80% to the top.
Place in a steamer that's steaming vigorously. Steam for about 10 minutes, then they're ready. (The time it takes to steam may depend on the size of your steamer.)
Story Behind this Recipe
This is an easy-to-make macrobiotic snack.
There's not much to it, except to wait for plenty of steam to rise before steaming, or else the bread will not rise properly. Try adding 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa or kinako. You can fill these with raisins or sweet potato, too.
