Steamed Black-Eyed Bean Cake ~ 五香眉豆糕


This is a delicious recipe that is easy to make and great to serve as a snack or a gathering.  It tastes somewhat like the yam cake except that there are plenty of beans to bite in this steamed cake.  The combination of dried shrimps, Shitake mushrooms and bits of pork made this steamed cake all the more flavourful.   Leftovers can be kept in the fridge and either reheat or pan-fried.
