Chinese New Year Cakes Recipes

This sweet, cake-like Nian Gao has a slightly sticky texture or bite to it. This is a good recipe if you don't like standing over the stove worrying about the steamer boiling dry, if you don't want to pan fry lots of pieces, or if you want to share with non-Asians who might be used to a more cake-like cake.


  1. 16 oz. Mochiko sweet rice flour
  2. One stick of butter or 3/4 cup of vegetable oil
  3. 3 eggs
  4. 2 1/2 cups milk
  5. 1 to 1 3/4 cup sugar--depending on if you like it sweeter
  6. 1 Tbl baking soda
  7. One can of red azuki beans


  1. Mix everything but the beans with an electric mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes. Beat for 2 more minutes at high speed.
  2. Sprinkle Mochiko flour over a 9"x13" baking dish that has been oiled or sprayed with Pam.
  3. Spread half of the batter on the bottom of the baking pan.
  4. Spread the red azuki beans (you can mix some batter into the beans if they are too thick to spread).
  5. Spread the other half of the batter over the red azuki beans
  6. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes
Test for doneness by inserting a chopstick (this is Chinese
New Year Cake after all). If it comes out clean, it is done
