Pais Labu Kuning // Indonesian Steamed Pumpkin Cake

Steamed pumpkin cake

Still in the mood for pumpkin.... Last time I made chocolate pumpkin cinnamon cake from one pumpkin, but the pumpkin was quite big and I still had left over quite a lot. So I made another thing from it i.e. Indonesian steamed cake which is called Pais Labu Kuning. This steamed cake is kind of pudding and made from a mixture of rice flour, tapioca flour and coconut milk.

200 gr pumpkin, steamed
200 gr sugar
100 gr tapioca flour
100 gr rice flour
1/2 ltr coconut milk
salt, vanilla
2-3 tbs shredded coconut
banana leafs

Directions :
1. Blend the pumpkin with sugar and coconut milk until smooth.
2. Add with tapioca flour, rice flour, a pinch of salt, vanilla and shredded coconut.
3. Prepare the heatproof bowl (square or rond shape) and cover the sides and bottom with banana leafs, pour the pumpkin mixture into it.
4. Steam for about 50 minutes. **Wrap the pan (steamer) lid with kitchen towel so that water vapor does not enter into the batter.
5. Set aside to cool, then remove from the tin. Serve with shredded cheese or steamed grated coconut.  

**Originally, in Indonesia they wrapped the mixture in banana leafs and then steam it.
