how can i make this without microwave? Do you have recipe for a traditional pastry called La Ming?
Soft in texture covered with lots of white sesame seed.
you can steam the dough.
Can I use the steaming method or baking method instead of the microwave?
sure, you can steam the rice cake.
I really like your 年糕receipt with try and see method.
For a Chinese NY tea party to 60 Am. ladies in Houston, Tx., I will introduce to them 年糕 (60片) along other Chinese snacks, therefore, I have to prepare it one or two days ahead, so “年糕放冰箱储存时间长了会变硬”.
I have to get all of my food ready to serve, at least 4 hours before guests come.
I. About the temperature:
Should 年糕”片” be served cold, room temperature or warm?
II. About the texture:
How to keep 年糕”片” 软硬适中RIGHT before the party?
A.不用白粘米粉 (年糕会太软) ,讓年糕放冰箱储存2 days会变硬 => 软硬适中?
How about 4 hours before the party, I切开 硬 年糕,一片片放到铺了保鲜膜的盘子上, leave it in the room temperature for 4 hours?
1. When to microwave it AGAIN? 保鲜膜包裹长条 or 年糕切开一片片放到铺了保鲜膜的盘子上?
2. For how long?
C. Once软硬适中的年糕一片片放到铺了保鲜膜的盘子上, how to keep it still 软硬适中 till the party?
1. Should I put the whole plat back to 冰箱 for the last 2 hours or 4hours & reheat?
2. Or leave it at room temperature for another 2 hours / chill for the last 2 hours?
Please give me a good suggestion, thanks.
III. About 桂花:
I have 2桂花树,开花多. Could I use the fresh 桂花 instead 干桂花? Same amount, 1大匙 or more?
Happy Chinese NY.
I need to know the number of TOTAL slices in your receipt, so that I would know how to increase your receipt for 60 persons.
Your current receipt provides for 12 servings, how many slices are in one serving? Based on your picture, could it be 4 slices per serving?
About 25 slices.
