Pumpkin Steamed Cake ~ 蒸南瓜蛋糕

 


These Pumpkin Steamed Cakes are soft and moist and they can be served for breakfast or as a snack at any time of the day.  The amazing fragrance is due to the nice blend of coconut milk with brown sugar, not forgetting the wonderful taste of the slightly dense cake.

Fried 'Nian Gao' ~ Sticky rice cake ~ CNY 2010

'Nian Gao' in Mandarin or 'Nin Ko' in Cantonese is a must-have item during CNY.  This sticky glutinous rice cake is symbolic as it carries a homonym that sounds like 'year~high/tall'.  For business people eating this will link them to prosperity and wealth and working people will look forward to career advancement, promotion. Slice them up when they're still soft, keep them in containers and they can be stored in the fridge for months. I normally steam and dip them in freshly grated young coconut mixed with some salt or just fry with beaten egg.  But this time around, I've decided to be a bit more 'challenging' and try out Elin's recipe.  Thanks, Elin of  Elinluv's Tidbits Corner   for sharing!
