Yummy! Here Is My Sweetheart Cake Recipe For All Of Central Texas to Enjoy
Love is in the air in Texas, which means people will be showing their appreciation to each other with flowers, candies, and gifts. I only felt that it was right that I share the love with Central Texas by passing along a recipe that will keep your love going.
SWEETS FOR YOUR SWEETIES
A sweetheart cake (aka wife cake or marriage pie) is a traditional Chinese cake with a thin crust or flaky pastry and it is so delicious filled with winter melon, almond paste, and sesame seeds with spice powder. When I was a little girl the way that we showed each other that we loved each other in the family was by making this particular cake. Allow me to share the recipe with you. Hopefully, you can give this delicious treat to someone you love this Valentine’s Day.
THIS IS THE PERFECT I LOVE PASTRY
You will first need all-purpose flour and lard. Yes, lard. I know it's fattening but that's what makes the cake so delicious.
Grab yourself some cooking oil and sugar to get a really sweet and flaky treat.
If you can get gao fen from the store, that’s great. Gao fen has been pre-cooked. Winter melon is a must and so good. You can find candied winter melon in Asian markets.
Toasting the sesame seeds briefly on a dry pan makes a difference in flavor, and you do not forget unsweetened coconut milk. Once you mix this all together, put it in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes and enjoy.
