Mont baung (Burmese: မုန့်ပေါင်း; pronounced [mo̰ʊɴ páʊɴ], lit. "steamed cake") is a traditional Burmese snack or mont.

This snack is a molded rice cake that is typically filled with coconut shavings or red bean cooked in jaggery, and then steamed in a traditional clay pot.[1] It bears resemblance to the Indonesian kue putu mangkok and Malaysian putu piring.

Sagaing holds an annual mont baung festival, during the full moon day of Nadaw, at the Weluwun Ngahtatgyi temple precincts (ဝေဠုဝန်ငါးထပ်ကြီးဘုရား).[2].
