Chinese Sticky Rice Cake

Mom2MMJ 1

"A sweet dessert made with glutinous rice flour (also called sweet rice flour) and red bean paste. This recipe was given to me by my Chinese sister-in-law. It is a favorite of my family. It has a firm custard-like texture which is different to many western palates. "

  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. Mix rice flour, canola oil, milk, sugar, and baking powder in a large bowl. Stir in the beaten eggs. Pour the mixture into the baking pan. Drop small spoonfuls of the red bean paste into the flour mixture about 1 to 2 inches apart, making sure that the red bean paste is covered by the flour mixture. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

What an easy recipe. I got pretty confused by reading all the reviews so I did reduce the sugar and oil by 1/2 and used soy milk. I made my own red bean paste using Azuki beans (whew, what a p...

Next time, I wouldn't even add the bean paste! When I had it, it was smushy and gooey.... Otherwise, just skip the bean paste and it tastes fine!

I made this for a potluck meal with Chinese University students and their host families... and it was a huge hit, especially among the students! - So much so that we came home from the party and...
