Brown Sugar Steamed Bread with Pancake Mix

Brown Sugar Steamed Bread with Pancake Mix

The brown sugar gives the bread a subtle sweetness. There is mashed sweet potato in the dough. Feel free to alter the recipe to your liking. You can store this bread in the freezer!


Pancake mix
200 g
Brown sugar (powdered)
3 tablespoons or more
150 ml
Vegetable oil (optional)
1 tablespoon
Sweet potato
100 g


1. Cook the sweet potato and cut into about 1 cm pieces. Steam or boil the sweet potato until it can be easily pierced with a skewer.
2. Heat the steamer. Put aluminum (or paper) cupcake liners in the cupcake mold.
3. Put the egg and milk in a bowl and mix. Add the brown sugar and mix.
4. Add the pancake mix and cut and fold it in with a rubber spatula.
5. Add the diced sweet potato and mix lightly.
6. Pour the mixture into the cupcake mold until about 70% full.
7. Make sure water in the steamer is boiling, and place the cupcake mold in the steamer. Steam for 10 - 15 minutes. Poke a skewer into the bread, and if it comes out clean, the bread is done.
8. Add vegetable oil in the mixture if you like. It makes the bread more moist.
