Mikan Microwave-steamed Bread

Mikan Microwave-steamed Bread

This easy steamed bread is served inside a mikan tangerine. It doesn't contain sugar, so it's great for dieters.

Ingredients: 2 mikan peels and 3 silicon cups

Mandarin oranges
Pancake mix
80 g


1. Cut the top of the mikan tangerines and scoop out the insides. Mind you don't rip the peel!
2. Wrap the scooped out insides in a paper towel and squeeze. Add the pancake mix and stir until it thickens.
3. Pour the batter into the empty mikan peels to 70% full. Pour the rest into heatproof containers or cups. This time I used three silicon cups.
4. Place on a heatproof plate, wrap, and microwave for 2 minutes. They're done when they have swelled and the surface has dried!
