    Member #610488's Note:

    This is not a dessert (not sweet), but more like a 'quick bread' for the Chinese. This 'cake' is usually made and eaten during the Chinese New Year or its slices are usually found all year round among the Dim-Sums in the Chinese restaurants. You can chill it in the fridge, but it should always be eaten hot after re-heating either in the microwave, or frying in a few tablespoons of oil. This cake can be kept for 1 week in the fridge (but usually it's finished within a day!!)
