Ramadhan Al Mubarak - Apam Pumpkin

Ramadhan Kareem to all muslims out there... today marks the first day of Ramadhan.. well err its actually gonna be the 2nd day.. its past midnight and both hubs and I are still wide awake.. we are looking thru at some houses that might be of interest.. its been 3yrs since we moved here and honestly? as much as i love the kitchen in this house.. i think i need a bigger one.. i love our old house.. a two story bungalow.. no facilities and there was not one time where i cud hear my parents saying.. "haishhh rumah kau ni nak naik tangga tinggi lahhhh" hehe.. i hated the kitchen in our old house tho.. it was small and dark and there was no oven!! i used to bake in my 18yrs old convention microwave oven.. was not fussy back then and i made do.. now that i am baking on a daily basis.. i need a kitchen that has a work station.. a kitchen that has an attachment so that i can hv my baking pantry right next to it.. anyway since i am used to my current white simple kitchen.. i wud love to find a place with a modern kitchen.. u know the one that has all the equipment attached to it.. my dream kitchen wud be the one that has built-in oven, microwave and espresso machine all in a row.. huhu a woman can only dream..... anywayyyyy am a little excited abt the whole idea.. i hope that we will find something that all of us will feel comfy. :o)

So as per usual.. our first iftar was at moms. every single year without fail mom will cook nasi rawon for all of us.. i will be in charge of desserts while others will buy something fm outside.. its like a tradition for us.. the start of ramadhan is at moms and the end of ramadhan will be at moms.. Alhamdullilah.. love u many many mom! i will load pics tmrw ok as am too tired to go thru it .. for now i just wanna post a recipe of this Apam.. the pink and purple ones are requested by Sonia.. she calls it Apam purple which is actually apam snow white.. the yellow ones that u see here are actually Apam pumpkin.. its true what Yat says.. this apam is really really nice.. the texture is soft and yep it tastes even nicer if u eat it with steamed grated coconut.. ty dear Yat for sharing this wonderful recipe.. my dad who is not a dessert/ kuih person ate 4 in one sitting hehehe

2 tsp instant yeast
1 tsp castor sugar
3 Tbsp warm water

230 gm pumpkin (boiled with skin and then scoop the flesh & weigh)
150 gm sugar
1 egg
150 ml thick coconut milk

C (sifted together)
200 gm multi purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder

Mix well Ingredients A. Set aside for about 5 -10 minutes.
Blend Ingredients B till smooth & fine. Pour into a large bowl.
Mix Ingredients C into B and blend bit by bit until fine. Mix well.
Pour Ingredients A into the mixture & mix well. Set aside batter for about 1 hour - i used clingwrap to cover the top of my bowl.
Heat steamer on high fire. Pour batter into smaller cups and steamed it for about 15- 18 minutes. Grease the cups with some oil before pouring the batter. I used medium fire as I do not want the apam to 'blossomed'.
Serve with steamed grated coconut mixed with a pinch of salt.

Ok folks.. i better get some sleep.. i hv to get up again in 3hrs time to prepare sahur.. once again.. hv a blessed Ramadhan and selamat bersahur...
