Rice Cake - Nian Gao - a Chinese treat!

  • 1 lb. glutinous rice flour (1/2lb. of the "red" bag and 1/2lb. of the "green" bag)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2.5 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • raisins and/or dates
  1. Beat eggs with sugar and slowly add glutinous rice flour and milk.
  2. Stir the mixture until the ingredients are fully blended with each other before adding baking soda.
  3. Add oil gradually while stirring continuously.
  4. Stop when oil no longer appears as a separate layer from the rest of ingredients.
  5. Add vanilla extract last.
  6. Stir and make sure there is no air bubble.
  7. Place Flexipan of choice on Perforated Baking Sheet
  8. Pour batter into Flexipan of choice
  9. Sprinkle with raisins and/or dates
  10. Bake at 325°F for approx. 45 minutes. (Cake should be lightly browned and solid when you move it.)
*Note:  in the Asian section of your grocery store, you should be able to find bags of rice flour.  Typically, you will find a red bag and a green bag.  Use 1/2 lb. of each to create the best consistency for this cake.  If you can't find it, other rice flour will work, it just may be a different consistency.
