Salted Egg Pumpkin Cake (Nan Gua Bing)

{{totalReview}}
These extremely chewy and satisfying doughy glutinous rice cakes should be devoured with a cup of tea in hand. Indeed, it’s a salted egg yolk deviation from the traditional Nan Gua Bing that’s just pumpkin-stuffed. Here, mashed also with creamy salted duck yolks, it’s then fried and bubbled in hot oil, and will make a perfect snack in the moon-marvelling Mid-Autumn festival. If you want some crunch, sprinkle nutty pumpkin seeds on top before frying. Best munched on while still hot.

  3. Frying the cake

    • Heat some oil to shallow fry the cakes, this should be enough oil to cover half the height of the cakes.
