Steam Sweet Potato Cake

My sister gave me this purple sweet potatoes. Last year I made Angkoo kuih with it. But this time I search for a different recipe.
And found this recipe from Hearts Aflutter with Desserts book.
I thought it will be so sweet, so I cut down the sugar.
And it turned out not so sweet.The very good thing is, my sister can enjoy it without worrying her sugar level. Yup, she got diabetes, my poor sister :(. Whenever I made dessert for her , I'll reduce the sugar , or I'll warn her about the sugar level.
Ok, I'll share this recipe, which I copied from the book.

Ingredients :
300 gm sweet potato
300 gm coconut milk

300 gm water
200 gm sugar
220 tapioca starch
11/2 tsp salt

350 gm coconut milk
120 gm tapioca starch
1/4 salt
11/2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp rice flour

Method :

Steam sweet potato till soft, about 15 minutes and mash to form a paste.
Mix ingredient (A). Mix in ingredients (B) and boil until slightly thicken.
Pour it into a square 9 inch pan and steam for 8 minutes (1)
Mix ingredients (C), pour it into (1) and steam for another 25 minutes.
Set aside to completely cool and cut into pieces.

That's really nice of you to reduce the sugar so that your sister can enjoy it too! I'm trying to do the same when baking for my uncle but it's really quite hard :/
