Banana Hee Pan 香蕉喜粄

In order to have post to submit to Little ThumbsUp and Best Recipe for Everyone, and I am lazy to search for recipe, so I decide to make the banana hee pan modify from the purple sweet potato hee pan recipe.

Ingredients :  
250g plain flour, sifted  
250g glutinous rice flour, sifted  
120g castor sugar  
225g mashed ripe banana (instead of using only 150g, I used all the puree from 3 big banana so that do not need to keep the balance)
6g instant yeast (or 1 1/2 tsp)
150-200g water
30g sunflower oil banana leaves (cut, washed and steamed)

Method :
1. Dissolve the instant yeast in 50g sprite, mix well.
2. Mix plain flour, glutinous rice flour, sugar, sweet potato puree, yeast water and knead into dough, add in the balance sprite and water slowly and knead till dough is smooth.
3. Add in oil bit by bit, mix well with the dough. If dough is too sticky, use the plastic spatula to scrape. (I used my KA mixer to do the job)
4. Divide dough into 50g portions (do not need to proof), brush some oil on palm and roll into balls.
5. Place the ball onto the greased banana leaves or parchment paper and flatten it using palm.
6. Let the shaped hee pan proof for 25-30 mins.
7. Use finger to press the hee pan, fermented hee pan will be spongy, once ready can start to boil water in the steamer.
8. Once water is boiled, steam the hee pan for 12 mins at medium low heat. Turn off the fire immediately. 
9. Do not remove the hee pan from the steamer.
10. Open the steamer lid a bit for 5 mins, then remove the lid carefully not to let water drip on the hee pan.
11. Remove the hee pan and cool on the rack.

The dough is super soft and sticky, I didn't even press the shaped hee pan and it flatten itself :(. The color of the hee pan is so dull, not pretty to look at however the taste is still good, with hint of banana fragrance.
