Kanom Faktong – Steamed Pumpkin Cakes

Steamed Pumpkin Cakes

A delectable Thai treat

This is a picture of Kanom Faktong – Steamed Pumpkin Cakes in Banana Leaf Cups. I used to love it when Kasma had her advanced students make one of my favorite kanom from Thailand: it reminds me of being there. She taught this one in her Advanced Set F class. The banana leaf cups are essential: they add a distinct flavor that’s part of the snack. Kasma taught this recipe in Advanced Class F-3.

Readers of this blog know that I have a fondness for Thai kanom (or snacks). One of the pleasures of market walking is to see the huge variety of snacks that are available: every year I see things I’ve never seen before.

Check out my blog entry on Thai Sweet Snacks – Kanom Wahn.

Here’s a previous photo of Kasma making a Thai snack.
