Chinese Steamed Rice Cake

steamed rice cake with raisin

 

I traveled to Xinjiang and brought back some raisins. How do I eat them? Making a steamed rice cake is a good idea. Steamed rice cake can be served as a snack or as a breakfast staple, making the menu richer.

Rice added baking powder to make the steamed rice cake softer. But I prefer a healthier steamed rice cake with only yeast. Fermentation takes much longer time in winter than in summer. If you like more sweetness, add more sugar.
