Fabulous Steamed Pumpkin Cake 蒸黄金蛋糕 LTU - Oct 2014

Another Cake using steaming method to tempt you!  By using Steaming method,  even without any oven,  home chefs are able to  make delicious cakes for their family and is more healthy too!

This time using pumpkin to join in the Little Thumbs Up October theme -  Pumpkin.  I have quite a few goodies with pumpkin as one of the main ingredients. Hope I can get rid off the lazy worms in me!  hehe......... look forward for a Roctober 2014!




No coloring is add to the cake, the golden charm is from the pumpkin itself!



This recipe is floating in the facebook sometime ago which is in Chinese version, I make some modification and translate into English.           I have many others cakes using steaming method, namely Steamed Banana Cake ,  Steamed Layered Pandan Cake and Steamed Orange Layered Cake and the best of all  Steamed Super  Moist Chocolate Cake.





The texture is soft, moist and dense and the taste is superb!  



To whet your appetite, I leave you with this picture.
