Pour milk into the matcha. Add little by little to dissolve the powder so that it doesn't clump. Add sugar and vegetable oil.
Sift flour and baking powder into the mixture and mix.
Put cupcake liners (about 7 cm in diameter) in ramekins and pour small amount of the mixture. Put the red bean paste on top.
Pour the remaining mixture over it. Soak the salted cherry blossoms in water for a while to de-salt. Put the blossoms as topping.
Steam for 10 minutes over the high heat.
Why don't you put the bread in a box like this for cherry-blossom-viewing? This is much more delicious than a store-bought one!
I created a variation of this recipe. "Steamed Bread with Cherry Blossom" (Recipe ID: 770391).
Story Behind this Recipe
I love making steamed bread because it's so tasty.
A hint is to wrap the steamer lid with cloth. When the bread cools, wrap with plastic wrap to keep at room temperature. If you cool them in the refrigerator, the texture will slightly change, but it is still tasty. You can make the bread a day before you go out for cherry-blossom viewing, and your family or friends would appreciate this snack.
