Healthy Steamed Pumpkin Muffins

Here is another batch of my healthy steamed muffins. Its my first attempt using the pumpkin in my steamed muffins. However, the colour didn't turn out as I expected. I thought it should be in yellow instead of light brown colour. >o<  Anyway, the smiling muffin is good enough to make me happy cause they're all smiling at me like a sunshine.

Ingredients :
160gm  mashed pumpkin
1 egg
80gm  sugar
80ml  milk
50ml  melted butter

100gm   all purpose flour
100gm   rice flour
1/2 cup  raisins
2 tspn  baking powder
1/2 tspn  baking soda

Method :
(1) combined ingredients (A) into a bowl then beat till well mixed.
(2) stir together ingredients (B) into a big bowl then add in mixture (A) to form soft paste.
(3) then fill batter into muffin cups and steam for 15 minutes over preheated steamer.

The usage of flour mixture 50-50 between all purpose flour & rice flour should cut down the gluten in the muffins. And must be good for our tummy. Nevertheless, the muffins smell terrific just like a steamed whole pumpkin standing infront of me. haha.... Enjoy guys !


  1. too bad you couldn't get the orange colour of the pumpkin, but it looks good, and sure it tastes delicious, so who cares for the colour! Big hugs mi friend

  2. I need to get a proper steamer!! These muffins look awesome, Kristy.

  3. I might just have to steam up some ASAP to stop me from staring at these lovely pumkpin huat kueh. I love pumpkin anything. :9

  4. Hi Kristy,

    I thought the same too... thinking that pumpkin steamed cake should be more yellow than a little brown.

    Neverthless, they still yummy and fluffy!
