Steamed Banana Cupcake

Had a bunch of speckled bananas again. Decided on a steamed version instead of baked cupcake. This is really a nice and moist cake, and it is really easy to do. Just beat up some of the wet ingredients and fold in the flour and voila!

Sis, here's the receipe for you:

Ingredients/ Method
2 eggs
100g sugar
2 ripe bananas, mashed (200g)
150g self-raising flour
1/8 tsp baking soda
75g oil (i only had ricebran oil left, it still worked)
1. Sift together self-raising flour and baking soda. Set aside.
2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar till ribbon stage.
3. Mix in mashed bananas, beat till combine.
4. Gently fold in flour mixture and oil, taking care not to deflat the eggs and sugar mixture.
5. Pour batter into muffin cups.
6. Steam over high heat for 15 mins or till an inserted skewer comes out clean.

Bento #26

This was actually a leftover dinner which I brought as lunch to the office the next day. Spiral pasta sprinked with dried parsley, and creamy chicken sauce. Yum. A mandarin orange completes the meal. Satisfying.

Bento #23, #24, #25

Bento#23: Blanched cauliflower, stir-fried chicken with carrots and onions (not featured here because the kids won't have any onions- unless it comes in the form of doughnut rings aka onion rings), fried cabbage with dried shrimps. Dragonfruit cubes were served. Told them a white lie that they were jellyfruits. At least it made them try the fruit.

Bento #24: Popcorn chicken (ketchup in green container), fried kailan with carrot rounds, steamed threadfin fish. Jellyfruit plus kiwi, served with the everfavourite flower marshmallow.

Bento #25: This was one of the dinners last week. I think it was pork slices in soysauce, fried french beans, plus a "bird's nest with 2 eggs" (aka fishball + spinach). They love spinach and fishball combo, esp cooked as a soup. No complaints from me - easy peasy to cook anyway. :P

Bento #20, #21, #22

Bento #20: Rice with fried wingdrum, sweet potatoe sticks (taste yummy) and stir-fried spinach (again). Ketchup in the green bear container for dip. Honeydew cubes for dessert. Deep fried stuff again in their bento as children simply love them, at least they eat their dinner.

Bento #21: Rice with yakitori balls on a skewer, chicken nugget, ham omelette and stir-fried broccoli with shitake mushroom. Dessert: papaya cubes

Bento #22: Shell pasta with tomato sauce. Added sausages, ham, peas, carrots, onions and hope that the gals will not pick stuff out and choose. They still did anyway, esp the onions and carrots. Pooh bear ham and cheese to make it look more cute. Some madarin orange wedge to complete the meal.

Flight to nowhere

1 Nov - Flight to nowhere - on the Singapore Flyer

This was a blue moon occasion, an office colleague outing with family. It was such a warm feeling to have everyone there, together with their family. The slight drizzle that morning made our day cool. Our flight was at 10.30am and we "took off" smoothly. The children were fascinated with the big ferris wheel. Flight journey was about 30 minutes. We could still identify some of the tracks used during the F1 night race.
