Taro is a root vegetable and can be cooked in a similar fashion as potato, but taro has better nutritional qualities. Taro has a low Glycemic Index (GI) and almost three times the dietary fiber, meaning that it effects blood sugar levels slowly. Eating a diet of low GI foods can also help prevent diabetes. Taro is nutritious, and is an excellent source of potassium, which is an essential mineral for many bodily functions. Taro also contains calcium, vitamin C, E and Bs, as well as magnesium, manganese and copper.

This delicious taro cake was inspried by the Cantonese turnip cake. Hope that you will love it as much as I do.

  8. lily says:

    毛毛妈,你好!我是按照称量版做的芋头糕,我用如意牌粘米粉,180克加上水475克调成面糊,然后和炒稍软身的芋头丝混合的时候,为什么不像你图上那样那么粘,而是很稀,面糊和芋头不能粘在一起呢?

  9. hannazhou says:

    毛毛妈,我做成功了芋头糕,很好吃。只是我的芋头只有406克,其他原料按比例递减,我是用电炉大伙火蒸的,时间大约1小时20分钟,高压锅没有蒸功能的朋友可以参考我的时间。谢谢你,毛毛妈有了你的美味厨房,给我的家庭带来了太多的美味和方便了。

  14. Betty says:

    可以請問一下妳用的玻璃盤尺寸。謝謝

  15. BETTY BANOVIC says:

    In pictures 5, 6 and 7, it looks very thick. When I mix the ingredients in step 5, it is really watery. When I add the other ingredients, it is still watery.

    Mine came out very dense, very little of the white part. Almost all taro root.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thank you. Betty

  16. yimeixie says:

    如果没有粘米粉,可以用自己家用大米粉碎代替吗?可能要粗一点

  17. Stephanie says:

    請問你的Instant Pot 是買多大的才能放下這個量的玻璃盒。謝謝
