Sweet Potato Steamed Bread (for Infants)

Sweet Potato Steamed Bread (for Infants)

This is a steamed bread made with pancake mix. Have it for breakfast or as a snack! This is convenient since you can freeze it too.


Pancake mix
1 bag (200 g)
Milk or formula
150 ml
Sweet potato
as needed (See helpful hints)


1. Turn on the steamer to warm it up.
2. Add the sweet potatoes to the prepared steamer, and steam for about 15 minutes. (Stick it with a toothpick, and it is ready to use if it goes through!)
3. Peel the skins from the sweet potatoes, and cut into 5~8mm cubes. They will be hot freshly steamed, so be careful not to burn yourself.
4. Turn the steamer back on to warm it up.
5. Crack an egg into a bowl and whisk, add in the milk, and stir together.
6. Add the pancake mix to the bowl from step 5 and mix, finally add in the steamed sweet potatoes, and give it a quick stir while taking care not to smash the sweet potatoes.
7. Fill the cup 70~80% full with pancake mix.
8. Line them up in the prepared steamer, and steam for about 10~15 minutes. Stick them with a toothpick, and they are done if it comes out clean.
9. Please make these with formula for babies that are not yet drinking cow's milk.
10. I used a 200 g bag of pancake mix.
11. The recommended amount of sweet potatoes, eggs, milk, and pancake mix combination is about 25 g per 1/4 of the mixture.
12. I recommend dividing up the batter before adding in the sweet potato and then adding something different to each batch. Then, you can make several different types of steamed bread at once.
