Happy Lunar New Year of the Dragon

Print Friendly and PDF
To all my blog readers, "Gung Hei Fat Choi"(恭喜發財). This is one of my favourite holidays because it's when families all get together and celebrate a new year. I wish for all of you the very best wishes of health, prosperity, and success in your various endeavors. For me, what makes this time very special is of course the feasting involved.

This is going to be a very short posting on just how exactly the Lunar New Year Cake can be prepared for serving guests. Hopefully you all tried the recipe I first uploaded in 2010. If not, the recipe can be found here --> Lunar New Year Cake

To cook, or rather, reheat to serve the cake:

  1. Slice the cake into 1cm thick slices and about the length and width of a credit card.
  2. Crack and beat a whole egg.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat and oil lightly.
  4. Dip each slice of the Lunar Cake into the egg batter coat and then place directly onto the pan.
  5. Flip each piece over once the egg is cooked and some light browning has occured.
  6. Remove from the pan and serve once both sides of each slice is done heating up.

  1. Your cake looks so lovely! ^^ I love eating it - it reminds me a bit of french toast, too!
