Baked Eggless 'Nian Gao' Vanilla Cake
nian gao'. Sounds pretty interesting, isn't it! It is actually quite tasty with the addition of chewy gluey sweet glutinous rice cake in between. You'll be surprised.
And here's what did.
2-1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tbsp corn flour
2 tpsn baking powder
1 tspn baking soda
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tspn salt
300ml condensed milk
113gm butter, melted
2 tbsp vinegar
2 tspn vanilla extract
* 1-1/2 cup nian gao, cubed (best in smaller chunks)
1 cup almond slices
(1) combine ingredients (A) into a big mixing bowl.
(2) stir ingredients (B) into (A) and mix well with a hand mixer.
(3) pour batter to a 10" baking lined with parchment paper, top with nian gao & sliced almond.
(4) bake at preheated oven 175'C for about 45-50 mins or 9x13" tray for 30 mins.
(5) then leave to cool for 20 mins before removing cake from tray.
'nian gao' after the Chinese New Year and mostly will be ended up in deep frying. I mean it's alright to have the deep fry food once a while but not so often. Besides, 'nian gao' isn't very nice to get them steam if they're no longer fresh & soft. So, here's another way to help you clearing off the 'nian gao' in your fridge. Hope you guys will love it too! Enjoy & have fun.
And then before ending this I would like to thank the following wonderful & thoughtful blogger for sharing such lovely awards with me. I am honoured to be apart it.
