If trying new things is your new year's resolution, this dish is perfect! You'll love this traditional Chinese dessert that is made with dried fruits, almonds and rice flour.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 2

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 6 ingredients (flour through baking powder) in a bowl.

Step 3

Combine water, oil, and eggs; add to flour mixture, stirring by hand just until moist.

Step 4

Spoon the batter into a 9-inch round cake pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool rice cake for 15 minutes in pan on a wire rack, and remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

If you're ever had the Japanese snack mochi, that is much like what this cake tastes like - a crisp exterior, but a sticky chewy interior. Strong rice flavor - almost like rice pudding in cake form. Yummy but not my favorite and probably wouldn't make again.
