Those who have been following my blog posts will know that I love sweet potatoes. I love them for their bright colour, taste, texture and also because they are good for health. I must say I was really thrilled to have successfully made the Sweet Potato Jam recently. I was enjoying it with crackers and bread but then soon I got a little bored with it. I just have to try something different, using this delicious jam. This Steamed Sweet Potato Jam Pudding is my trial attempt, out of pure curiosity. I was utterly surprised and happy that it came out very successful.
This is a non-gluten dessert. I made it into 2 layers of different colours for extra appeal as the plain layer looked a little dull. One layer is the plain one and the other layer is with a little pandan (screwpine) essence added, for colour and fragrance. The result was a real surprise. It tasted very delicious. I shared it with a friend and she liked it very much too. Here is my recipe to share.
300g sweet potato jam
130g rice flour
130g tapioca (cassava) flour
600g coconut cream
Put everything together into a mixing bowl and mix well.
Divide into 2 equal portions. In one portion, add a few drops of the pandan essence and mix well.
Put some water into a steamer to let it boil. Oil a metal tray. When the water boils, put the tray into the steamer and pour in the plain portion. Steam it for about 15 minutes. Pour in the green portion and steam for another 15 minutes. That’s it….simple, easy and quick. I used a fairly big tin so it takes a shorter time to cook. If you use a smaller, deeper tin, it will take longer to cook.
When it’s cooked, off the fire and let it cool completely before cutting otherwise it will be sticky.
