Hi,
I tried out the recipe.But my cup cakes did not "cracked up" like yours. How did you get that effect? It tasted good though.

I'd like to know what kind of flour should i use

Should we use all purpose flour to make these? Also, to have the crack effect, should we cut the top 3/4 way through steaming it?
Thanks for sharing. Loved how yours turn out. I'm crossing my finger hoping mine will turn out the same! :) I think this is the banh bo I was talking about. Maybe it is called Banh thuan after all. :)

lovefood,
just follow the instructions and don't be afraid of failure. Play with your food, if you think cutting the cakes 3/4 way through steaming it will help... then do it.

hello,

What's the purpose of adding club soda? Also when I tried making these cup cakes, the smell of eggs is very strong, is there a way to get rid of the smell? Add coconut milk? Vanilla essence?

Thanks.

club soda has bubbles...do the bubbles float or do they sink?

if you think adding coconut milk or Vanilla essence will help then, by all means please do. Play with your food! What do you have to lose?

Thank you HoangTam for the recipe. I got the cakes look exactly like yours. I gave my first batch to Mr. Trash but my second works so nice (5 out of 6 looks so beautiful).
Thanks Again!

hoang,

no need to cut halfway,grandma used to sprinkle the granulated sugar carefully forming an "X" on the ready batter.during steaming the cakes will crack
