  2. Place the steamed yam cubes into a bowl, and mash them with the sugar and vegetable oil until very smooth.
  3. Clean the steamer insert, and line with parchment paper. Place the mashed yam pudding into the steamer over a saucepan of water as before; bring to a boil, cover, and steam for 30 minutes. Serve hot.

Excellent taste and texture. Though I added cinnamon butter sugar instead of the vegetable oil. I'll reduce the sugar by 30 per cent in the future. A nice easy recipe.
