Thank you for your suggestions. I did try another batch today, but I only beat the eggs and sugar around 3 minutes. It did rise, but not as tall as the examples. I'm hoping your suggestion will work.

Hi, the original recipe is written in Indonesian, but I'm going to give you the English version of it. It's called "Bolu Kukus" in Indonesian words, but you can google "steamed cupcakes" although it's hard to find the exact recipe in English. The second link will show what we use to make it (scroll to the bottom)

In general, it's pretty easy to make, but the tough part is making the cupcake "split" and rise up. In the recipe above, Ovalette is a brand of emulsifier, but currently I haven't found it.

Hi, so I tried Akhavan and Vixit, but both doesn't have it. I know someone suggested soy lecithin, but I haven't been able to find it. I'm hoping someone will have more stores suggestions for me. Thank you

I'm assuming you meant Akhavan, the grocery store in Pierrefonds. I haven't but I'll check this weekend

Hi guys,

I'm trying to create steamed cupcake and one of the ingredients needed to make it "grow" is emulsifier. I know it's not commonly sold, but I heard you can find it in Asian stores. I have tried Marche Hawai and G market in china town, but I don't know where else I can find it. So can anyone help me find a store?

I also heard Xantham gum as a subtitute, but I'm worried it won't create the "growing" effect I need.
