Chewy Steamed Bread with Pancake Mix & Bread Flour

Chewy Steamed Bread with Pancake Mix & Bread Flour

I made chewy steamed bread with pancake mix! With the special addition of bread flour I was able to make an especially chewy bread. Try with jam.

Ingredients: 6 - 10 servings

Pancake mix
100 g
Bread flour
70 g
Vegetable oil
1 tablespoon
100 ml
2 - 5 tablespoons
Baking powder
a small amount


1. Mix the egg, vegetable oil, milk, and sugar together well.
2. Add the pancake mix and bread flour to the mixture and fold in with a rubber spatula.
3. [When using a steamer] Prepare some paper cups (preferably lined with glassine paper) and pour the batter into the cups.
4. Place the cups into a steamer that is already steaming and steam for 15 - 20 minutes. (This takes longer than it would in a frying pan).
5. [When using a frying pan] Place the cups in a large frying pan.
6. Pour water into the frying pan until 1 cm in height, cover with a lid and steam for 12 - 14 minutes.
7. Once they become full and fluffy, they're done.

9. Try replacing the 200 g pancake mix in these recipes with 100 g pancake mix and 70 g rice flour.
10. When using bread flour, the bread flour may not rise as much so that's why it's better to use baking powder as well when possible. I use 2 g for the bread in the photos.

Story Behind this Recipe

I really wanted to eat some chewy steamed bread but when I tried to make it with shiratamako, it just wouldn't mix.
I should use it for dango instead, so I tried with bread flour and it went quite well.
