Chinese Pumpkin Fagao and Jujube Cake is a popular Chinese dessert made from pumpkin puree, glutinous rice flour, and jujube paste. The cake is soft, moist, and sweet, with a subtle pumpkin flavor and a gooey, sweet jujube filling.
To make the fagao, pumpkin puree is mixed with glutinous rice flour, sugar, and baking powder to form a thick batter. The batter is steamed until it rises and becomes fluffy and spongy. The jujube paste is made by cooking dried jujubes with sugar until they are soft and mashed into a paste.
To assemble the cake, the fagao is sliced in half and filled with a generous amount of jujube paste. The cake is then steamed again for a few minutes to warm up the filling.
Chinese Pumpkin Fagao and Jujube Cake is a popular dessert during the Mid-Autumn Festival and other celebrations in China. It is also enjoyed as a sweet snack or breakfast food.
