Steamed Pumpkin Cake

Steamed Pumpkin Cake by Mykitchensnippets . The moment I saw this at her blog, I knew I had to try it out and sure enough it was a winner.  And those who love pumpkin will like it.  And this savoury cake tasted better the next day and firmer too. The toppings make the cake more savoury delicious !

I really want to thank Gertrude for sharing this recipe . She has a great blog and I have added a lot of her recipes to my To-Do List .  Will make this again for sure.  Great pumpkin cakes that can be served for afternoon tea for the family.
