This steamed pumpkin cake or more commonly known as 金瓜糕 is a Chinese Dim Sum dish (中式糕点), not to be confused with the baked Pumpkin Cake.


100g pumpkin (skin removed)
125g rice flour
10g tapioca flour
230ml water
35g dried shrimps
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp white pepper powder


  1. Soak the dried shrimps for about 15minutes, chopped into bits.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the rice flour, tapioca flour, salt, pepper together. Add in the water and whisk until there is no lump in the batter.
  3. Add in cooking oil and the chopped dried shrimps in a hot frying pan, stir fry until fragrant.
  4. Add in pumpkin and stir fry for about 5 minutes. Lower the heat and add in the flour mixture, mix well. The mixture will turn thick within the minute, turn off the heat.
  5. Transfer the mixture into a greased square/round deep steaming dish, smoothen the top. Steam over high heat for 35-40 minutes. Allow the pumpkin cake to cool before cutting.
