Steamed sweet potato jam pudding

Steamed sweet potato jam pudding

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
200g water
150g sugar

Mix all

Put everything together into a mixing bowl and mix well.

Green portion

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.

Lovely dessert Mary. I love sweet potatoes too. These are great to have with tea with some girlfriends. :D

Shirley  on December 2nd, 2009

Isnt this a cross between your 9layered rice pudding and sweet potato jam? Wonderful combination. Very creative.

foodlovee  on December 2nd, 2009

Looks very nice.There so many Malaysian desserts like Bubur Hitam Cendol,mostly kuehs like Kueh Dadar,Kueh Lopis,Kueh Kosui,Tapioca Kueh, Kueh Sarlat,Bengkang UBI,Onde Onde,Dodol, and many more. Kueh Lapis would one of the most famous of layer kuehs which you can peel the layer by layer.And I love it all.

@Divina - I wish I can get more varieties of sweet potatoes here. I’m sure there are more on your side. We should open a sweet potato dessert shop together :D

@Shirley - There are lots of delicious layered puddings in Malaysia. The proportions of the different flours used are very important in order to create a very beautiful texture followed by the neatness of the layers. Then the various ingredients used are also very important to give it the right flavour. I’m still learning. I miss all of them and have not tried every type yet.

@foodlovee - Wow…that’s a long list of mouth-watering kueh…some I have not heard yet. I would love all of them…now I’m drooling. I hope to learn more soon. I must try all of them when I go back.

cheah  on December 2nd, 2009

Yum, yum … you really can create a lot of ‘kuih’

Jeannie Tay  on December 2nd, 2009

Very nice kuih… similar to 9 layer kuih, which I like to make too. Great recipe.

Mary  on December 2nd, 2009

@Cheah - I love kueh but can’t get here :( I must know how to make at least a few to satisfy my constant cravings :) Have learned quite a few already…very happy about that.

@Jeannie - I only managed to make 2 layers….not enough patience…haha. Will try more layers next time.

Drick  on December 2nd, 2009

have had many layered desserts like parfaits, puddings, and cakes but nothing like this - wish I could just take a bite to taste….

Natasha - 5 Star Foodie  on December 2nd, 2009

This is an amazing creation! I love the two color layers, very pretty!

Sanjana  on December 2nd, 2009

Mary your desserts always look so stunning! This is so wonderful! Great job.. I wanna just grab a piece from the screen!

Mary  on December 2nd, 2009

@Drick - I want to try all those layered desserts that you mentioned. They sound delicious. Now you have to make it to try it otherwise you have to fly here :P

@Natasha - Thanks for compliment. Hope to try with more layers next time.

@Sanjana - Thanks for compliment. It’s eggs free so you can indulge in it :)

Amber @ Native Food and Wine  on December 2nd, 2009

Mary you are so creative! It sounds delicious.

Katherine  on December 2nd, 2009

The colours are very bright and would be a great treat for christmas. You have such yummy recipes Mary

Light Delight with TouTou  on December 2nd, 2009

oh pudding is my favorite dessert! I love sweet potato too. the color of sweet potato in that pudding is not that red huh :-D and pairing it with green just makes it divine!! save me a piece!!

Ellie  on December 2nd, 2009

Very interesting pudding. Might try soon :)

Olive  on December 3rd, 2009

you DO love sweet potatoes, I love it too only it’s hard to find the golden yellow variety that I want where I live.

..the pudding looks delicious, Mary..I love the layering!

Mary  on December 3rd, 2009

@3hungrytummies - Yes, have to admit I love sweet potatoes :) I always love the bright orange colour and I just love the texture and taste of it.

@Amber - Thanks for your lovely compliment.

@Katherine - Thanks for lovely compliment. I hope to make more of this for Christmas party. I’m sure my friends will like it.

@Light Delight with TouTou - Haha…we should start a SWeet Potato Club. The colour is not as bright because of the jam where the coconut cream and the eggs dilute the effect. That’s the reason I make the green layer to make it look better. Come…I’ll make a whole tray for you :)

@Ellie - Thanks. Hope you try out soon.

@Olive - Oh YES! This is the only type that I always go for. There’s another type but it’s not as bright and the texture is not as nice. I hope to find the purple type…..can imagine your frustration not able to find this bright orange type. You have to come here to eat then :P Thanks for your lovely compliment.

Hi Mary
I was wondering what sweet treat I could make to follow up the daifuku mochi - you have provided it, this looks great and I can’t wait to try it.
Thank you!

Mary  on December 4th, 2009

@Kate the Bake - I love it too and want to make again. May even make today as I still have the sweet potato jam.

kristy  on December 10th, 2009

Thanks for the warm greeting! Glad to be back. Ooo… I guess I’ve missed out quite a lots over here. Hopefully, I can catch up soon. Yeah, I understand when people live faraway from home and unable to get the food they used to eat, that would be really sad! And even causing you home sick even more huh! This just came at the right timing… haha….

Mary  on December 11th, 2009

@Kristy - Have beenmissing you and really gad to see you are back. I’m sure you had great fun shopping while away. You are absolutely right to say that. That’s why I have to work hard to cook all the food that I miss…:P Still lots more more to learn…hmmmm
