If you ask me which one is your preference between taro cake and pumpkin cake, I will choose taro cake, i like the fluffy texture from taro, pumpkin is too soft for me. No doubt pumpkin cake still taste good!


I am submitting this post to Aspiring Bakers #12: Traditional Kueh (October 2011) hosted by SSB of Small Small Baker.

Lately alot of bloggers have posted their food blog using pumpkins! I think it must be because the Halloween is drawing near. Your steamed pumpkin cake must be delicious and healthy indeed.
