Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma Mushi-pan


baby bear loves it!! he finished the whole cake and refused to share a bite with me >__< 

Recipe adapted from Washoku guide

Makes 3 large muffin cups

150g Pancake mix (I am using Morinaga pancake mix)
100ml Milk
1 Egg
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 tablespoon Vegetable oil

Chocolate flavour:
1 tablespoon Sugar
1/2 tablespoon Cocoa powder

Character deco:
1 tablespoon Cocoa powder


  1. Wrap the lid of a steamer with a towel and tie at the handle of the lid (this prevents condensation from hitting the dough while steaming).
  2. In a bowl, beat the egg and add the milk and sugar and combine. Then add the pancake mix and vegetable oil and mix well.
  3. Set aside 1-2 tablespoons white batter for character deco. Divide the rest of the batter into 2 parts. Add 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder to one part of the batter for chocolate flavored steamed cake.
  4. In muffin molds, place the cupcake liners and divide the batter equally into the cups. If you have rigid muffin cups, you don’t need to use molds or tins. Or use ramekins as molds.
  5. Add the water to a steamer and bring to the boil. When boiling, place the muffin molds and steam on high heat for about 15 minutes. Stick a toothpick in the center of the steamed bread. If it comes out clean, they’re done.

Character deco:

  1. Add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder to half of the white batter.
  2. Scoop white and dark brown batter into 2 piping bags or rolled-up baking paper.
  3. Pipe an oval shape using the white batter. Then add the eyes, nose and mouth with the dark brown batter.
