This dish is made healthier with the power of steam. The saltiness of the cheese and the slight sweetness of the dough match really well.

Ingredients (Makes 6)
- 1 egg (medium)
- 40 g sugar
- 10 g honey
- 10 g melted butterNote
You can melt the butter by putting it into a bowl and then putting the bowl in hot water, or by microwaving it at 600 W for about 20 sec.
- 70 ml milk
- 100 g plain flourNote
Flour made with soft wheat. Contains less gluten.
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 100 g plain flour
- 2 tbsp grated cheese
- Camembert cheese, as needed
- Pizza cheese, as needed (approx. 3 tbsp)
Make the batter: In a bowl, beat the egg, then add the sugar and honey and mix in with a whisk. Add the melted butter and mix well, then add the milk and briefly mix.
Add the ingredients for [A] by sifting them.
Quickly stir with a whisk, then add the grated cheese, and stir.
The saltiness of the cheese will bring out the sweetness of the dough.
Line pudding cups with paper liners and fill about 80 % full with the batter.
Top with the camembert cheese and pizza cheese. Place into a steamer that is preheated and steaming, and steam over medium-high heat for 12-13 min. Pierce with a bamboo skewer or toothpick to check doneness: if it comes out clean, the bread is cooked through.
