“Mushipan” in Japanese means steamed bread, but has a more cake-like rather than bread-like texture. It is easy as you can simply mix everything in a bowl; and healthier as it uses very little oil and sugar. The basic recipe can also be tweaked to include other ingredients such as green tea flavour or chocolate or even savoury items like vegetables and meat.
I love how springy and fluffy the cake is. However, the recipe doesn’t use a lot of sugar and isn’t sweet. For those with a sweet tooth, you may want to increase the sugar content a little.
