    Hi Jeannie,
    May i know how to get banana puree n what is steam bake method?

      Put your bananas into a blender and blend or use a fork to press until very fine. Steam bake is putting a tray of hot water on the level below your baking pan. Or you can put a wire rack standing on the water tray and place your baking pan on the rack without it touching the water.

    Hi Jeannie. For steam bake method, can i replace a tray of hot water at the lowest rack, then i placed the cupcakes on the tray at the middle rack?


    • jeannietay said

      Yes you do that. Another way is place a wire rack on the tray and place your tray with the cupcakes on the rack without touching the water.
