傳說中的狀元糕: 迷你版 The mini champion cake

(以下為迎合此傳統的古樸小吃,鄙人將嘗試把此文寫得文雅一點,看不懂的別打在下呀!)

2010-05-03 Champion cake 狀元糕

狀元糕,中國小吃之一。狀元糕相傳是由中國糕點「廣寒糕」演變而來,歷史可遠溯自南宋時期,之所以稱為狀元糕,是因為販賣的成品貌似狀元帽子,因以為名。

狀元糕其名稱由來還有一種說法,即古代有一個書生,赴京趕考,因在半途上盤纏用盡,於是就在京城街上用幾個簡單的木製筒倒入芝麻、花生粉等原料,做起了製糕的生意,後來這個書生終於考上狀元,一日皇上親自拜訪狀元郎,狀元郎一下子心急不知道要用什麼招待皇上,於是就拿出了當年製糕掙錢的工具,將當年自創的糕仔做給皇上吃,皇上吃了龍心大悅並賜封為狀元糕。

一直知道狀元糕這款民間小吃,卻一直停留在”久聞”的狀態,未有機會見識一番。今次無意中尋得食譜,怎說也得做做看吧!?

如今一試,方知狀元糕其實是迷你版的有餡鬆糕,通常裡面夾一小塊黑芝餡或花生餡。原來狀元糕是這樣子的呀!就味道而言,鄙人很喜歡那帶米香的軟糯口感,剛蒸好熱騰騰時吃更是一絕。(Gluten-free喔!)

狀元糕by周老師的美食教室

白砂糖 // 30g
水 // 140g
糯米粉 // 200g
杏仁粉 // 50g

花生餡:
鹹花生醬 // 35g
糖粉 // 20g

芝麻餡:
黑芝麻粉 // 20g
糖粉 // 20g
固體菜油(Shortening) // 1tbsp

1. 糖加水溶化,加糯米粉和杏仁粉拌勻,用手搓到完全均勻,放置一小時,過篩。因為粉是溼的,所以要把粉糰放在篩子上磨擦才能過篩。篩過就不要再壓到。

2. 把做餡的糖粉都過篩,加其它材料拌勻即成兩種餡,各分成6小塊。

3. 把1/3的粉舀入杯中,排在蒸籠裡。

4. 蒸鍋裡煮沸小半鍋水,上籠用中火蒸5分鐘。

5. 開蓋,把餡放在中間,把另 2/3的粉輕輕撒在周圍。

6. 蓋上再蒸5分鐘即可。

:note:
1. 這次用上mini muffin模作成一啖一個的迷你版。入模前掃油,脫模時先用牙籤順模的型狀沿邊劃一下,再用手指輕輕壓開邊位置順勢脫模。用普通Muffin cup也可以,更方便喔!

mini champion cake (gluten-free & vegan!)

24 mini-muffin size rice cake
Sugar // 30g
Water // 140g
Glutinous rice flour // 200g
Almond flour // 50g

Peanut butter filling:
Peanut butter sauce // 35g
Powdered sugar // 20g

Black sesame filling:
Black sesame, grounded // 20g
Powdered sugar // 20g
Shortening // 1tbsp

1. Melt sugar with water in a large bowl. Add glutinous rice flour and almond flour, combine by hands. Set aside for an hour, then sift through a sieve (The mixture will be like a damp coarse meal or even dough like, force them through the sieve to create coarse flour).

2. Fillings: Sift the powdered sugar, add in the remaining ingredients, divide and form into 12 small ball-like dough.

3. Fill each muffin mould with coarse flour to halfway fill, place the muffin pan into steamer.

4. Steam them at medium heat for 5 minutes.

5. Remove the steamer cover, place the filling ball in the middle, then fill in the rest coarse flour.

5. Cover the steamer and steam for 5 minutes.

:note:
1. I used mini muffin pan to create these one bite mini champion cake. Grease the muffin pan with oil before fill in the coarse flour. To remove from pan, use a tooth pick to draw around the edge of muffin mould, then gently press the edge with finger to help removing from the mould. You can also use regular muffin cup, that way you don't need to worry about removal!
