Steamed Bread Made in Parchment Paper

Steamed Bread Made in Parchment Paper

I overslept, and didn't have any bread! Steamed bread really comes in handy during times like this. You can have piping hot and soft delicious steamed bread in no time at all.

Ingredients: 3 large servings

Pancake mix
200 g
160 ml
Maple syrup or honey
1 tablespoon
Egg yolk (optional)
Raisins or any other favorite fillings


1. Combine the pancake mix with the milk, syrup, (and egg yolk, if adding), and beat with an egg beater.
2. Place a square sheet of parchment paper in a gratin dish, pour in 1/3 of the batter (about a ladleful), sprinkle in raisins (if you like), and wrap in parchment paper. (Refer to Step 10).
3. Microwave each one for 2 minutes, and it is done! (It will be ready in about 1 minute 10 seconds if you cook it at 1000 W!)
4. I topped them with stewed sweet potatoes. So tasty.
5. I used instant coffee and chocolate chips to make my daughter's favorite cafe mocha steamed bread.
6. I forgot to take a picture, but when I mixed syrup into user "Rinrin"'s matcha bread to make a marble pattern, it was tasty!
7. I mixed powdered cheese into the batter, and added little bits of processed cheese. Yum.
8. Attention!! This is something I heard from user "Mei". For a trick on reheating steamed bread, see Step 9.
9. <Re-posted from "Mei"'s comment>: Use a plastic storage container similar to a ziplock storage bag, make it in a Kureha microwave, on the "steamed vegetable" setting. This microwave has such a function, but adding a small amount of water to the container and microwaving for 1 minute will produce piping hot and soft steamed bread.
10. [Tip for wrapping the parchment paper] Using a square sheet of parchment paper, first, bring one of the corners of the front edge to the opposite corner of the back edges together, then fold them two-three times. Then, roll up both ends like a candy wrapper.

Story Behind this Recipe

I really overslept, and... I needed one more item to serve for breakfast! I didn't have anything in particular, so I tried making this. My kids happily ate these.
