Sesame Wheat Steamed Donuts 芝麻全麥蒸面包

These little steamed donut bread had caught my attention as they looked pretty adorable.
Using wholemeal flour & sesame seeds for part of the ingredients, these donut bread were actually quite healthy as well. But I do not have wholemeal flour at home, I replaced it with wheat flour instead. The wholemeal flour will give the donut bread a little brownish in color whereas mine is not due to the wheat flour.
This full recipe is about to yeild about 12-15, 5-cm donut size.
Coat the donut tray with canola oil and sprinkle some sesame seeds on it. Pipe the batter in about 3/4 full as the bread will rise.
Miss B, this is how I steamed my cakes... hehehehe. Using my wok and a metal rack:-p
All ready to be tested... I wasn't too sure if this steamed bread will be yummy by the look of them...
And they were yum yum indeed!! A soft texture. Nothing fanciful but just a small little donut, and it's healthy steamed bread makes it all. Plus the sesame seeds on the top and bottom of the bread, it was fantastic.
