Steamed cake (mushipan)

Original from: daydaycook

Adapted for use with BRUNO Multi Grill Pot

These super soft and fluffy cake are super easy to whip up and the best part - No oven required! 

We made mushipan - Japanese steamed cake with the BRUNO Multi Grill Pot. The strong even heating is perfect to ensure the cakes cook and rise up evenly. 

For a fun Easter twist, we made them in eggshells. Of course, you can make them in cupcake liners as well and decorate them as cute chicks!
