Sticky rice cake with red bean paste ~ 芝麻豆沙饼


I love red bean, be it  in kuih, mooncakes, rice dumpling or other pastries with red bean paste filling.   This was my first attempt at making the red bean paste from scratch and had to admit that it was really very time consuming.  Nonetheless this sticky rice cake or glutinous rice cake with red bean paste, was indeed very delicious especially when taken fresh from the pan.  I like it that it was not deep-fried but pan-fried with very little oil when using a non-stick pan.  Great to snack on with a good old cup of hot Chinese tea!

  3. Meanwhile, weigh the red bean paste into 20 gm each and roll into a ball.
  4. Dust a work top with some flour, knead dough lightly.
  5. Divide dough in half, roll with both hands to shape into an oblong.  Divide into 6 pieces and roll each into a ball.
  6. Place a ball of dough in your palm and flatten with your hand to about 2.1/2 inch diameter and 1/4 inch thick.
  7. Place a ball of paste in the center of the dough.  Wrap up and seal the edges, flatten and press some the dough onto a plate of sesame seeds, both sides.
  8. Heat up some oil in a non-stick pan and place the cakes onto the pan.  Lightly fry and flip over the cakes now and then, till the cakes are soft, slightly puffed up and golden brown.
  9. Dish out and serve immediately.
  10. Yield :  12 pieces.

  3. Hi Soke Hah, I think I know this rice cake. It is QQ and chewy and crispy on the outside after pan fried like Scallion Pancake. Nice with so much filling.

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!
