Steamed Pumpkin Cake

In the mood for making kueh lately, I tried out this Steamed Pumpkin Cake by Mykitchensnippets last Sunday. Those who loves pumpkin will like it. For me , it is quite okay if you have enough seasoning on the batter to brings out the flavor. I realized that it tasted better the next day and firmer too. The toppings make the cake more savoury delicious !

Thanks once again Mykitchensnippets for sharing this recipe . I love all her recipes and have added a lot of her recipes to my To-Do List :))))) so look out for it here.
