Steamed Pumpkin Cake ( Sumping Waluh )

STEAMED PUMPKIN CAKE / Sumping Waluh

Sumping waluh is a traditional Balinese dessert made from pumpkins, other options to use also butternut squash if you don’t have pumpkin in your pantry, rice flour, grated coconut, cane sugar as a sweetener, packed with banana leaves to get more appetizing aroma and cooked by steaming. These little cakes are so incredibly tasty and easy to make, creamy taste and has a texture of flan or custard, plus they are dairy-free & gluten-free. It’s the perfect way to end a meal or enjoy as a little snack for your afternoon tea time.

You may substitute banana leaves with parchment paper if you don’t have any.

Ingredients:

500g pumpkin

250g grated coconut

150g rice flour

100g sugar

1 tsp salt

20 banana leaves

Preparation:

  • Combine pumpkin, grated coconut, rice flour, sugar and salt into a smooth dough
  • Break the fibers of the banana leaves to allow for easy folding. Do this by steaming
    the leaves for 10 seconds or cooking them in the microwave oven for 5 seconds
  • Place 2 heaped tbsp pumpkin filling in the centre of a banana leaf and fold long edges of banana leaf in towards each other. Bend open ends back and tuck under parcel. Continue until mixture is used up. Steam parcels for 25 minutes. Cool to room temperature before serving.
