Chinese New Year is approaching next week. Majority of the Chinese in the world will have a big celebration. I always feel that I am one of those rare minority who don’t really celebrate New Year. I left home at the age of 13 for further education and since then, I rarely go home for New Year. One of the reason was because the New Year season was always the busiest for my family since we were in the tourism business. So we never had the time to celebrate CNY. However even though we don’t really celebrate as a family, we would always receive lots of yummy goodies from relatives and friends. That is probably the only “New Year tradition” that I know – the food.
For this New Year, I haven’t made any cookies yet but I did make this sticky cake. It’s one of my favorite New Year food. I love to pan fry this with either egg or sandwich between 2 slices of yam (taro) or sweet potato. I know some people like it soft and coated with shredded coconut. How do you like to eat your sticky cake?
