Chinese Rice Cake with Glutinous Rice Filling
I thought I'd share my (not bake), but steamed chinese rice cake here. This is something that is so dear to my heart, as it reminded me of the time that I spent hours helping my mom doing this, every year diligently, for some festivities. Now that I'm away from home, it's just something to remind me of home, family, and I want to pass this little tradition to my little boy, he did help out, and did it well indeed.
This is a unique kind of cake that I probably see in Singapore/Malaysia, and probably Taiwan, and the taste is chewy as it uses rice flour, I forgot to take the inside. This is usually filled with glutinous rice, and other stuff like mushrooms, dried shrimps, and even peanuts.

FYI - the word on the cake means "long life".
