Step 1
Line each cupcake tin with cupcake paper. Then in a steamer pot, add water and bring it to a boil.
Step 2
In a medium bowl, add Cake Flour (1 1/2 cups) and Baking Powder (1/2 tsp) . Whisk to combine.
Step 3
In a large bowl, add Large Eggs (2) . Use a hand mixer on high speed to beat the egg until fluffy about 3 minutes.
Step 4
Gradually add Granulated Sugar (1 cup) while beating on high speed until the mixture become thicker for about 3 minutes. Make sure to use a rubber spatula to scrape the side into the mixture.
Step 5
Add Vanilla Extract (1/2 tsp) , Lime Juice (1 Tbsp) , Water (3 Tbsp) , and Milk (3 Tbsp) . Beat until just combined.
Step 6
Into the wet mixture, sift in the dry mixture. Use a hand mixer on low speed to mix until combined for about 2 minutes. Make sure to use a rubber spatula to scrape the side into the mixture.
Step 7
Add Red Food Coloring (4 drops) . Then use a spatula to mix the batter until the color is even.
Step 8
Evenly pour the batter into cupcake tins. Dip a toothpick in lime juice and draw a cross on the top part of the cupcake.
Step 9
Place the cupcake on the steamer insert and transfer it to the pot of boiling water. Then reduce the heat to medium-low, making sure not to bring it to a boil otherwise your cupcake will be soaked with water. Cover with a lid and Cook for 10-15 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.
