Steamed Pumpkin Muffins

These sweet, soft and easy to make muffins are an absolute killer at home. The pumpkin adds to the sweetness whilst retaining moisture with the hint of coconut taking it beyond the classic pumpkin muff. Not to mention the novelty of steaming a cake like this.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time:      15 minutes each batch.
Ingredients:         125 grams of steamed and mashed pumpkin
                         85 grams of castor sugar
                         200 grams of self raising flour
                         100 ml of coconut milk or cream
                         Pinch of salt
                         2 tsps cinnamon
                         30 ml of oil
                         1 egg

Steam and mash pumpkin and leave aside whilst preparing the rest of the mixture. Combine flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Beat egg, sugar and salt together with a whisk until frothy and well combined. Add coconut milk, egg mixture and oil to dry ingredients, mixing until a batter is formed. Use reinforced cupcake pans and fill halfway with batter. Steam on a high heat for 15 minutes. Lovely served with jam or pickles.
