Steamed Carrot and Radish cake (红白萝卜糕)

This is my last post for Lunar New Year . This cake is specially make to celebrate the last day of CNY. I think now everyone is busy again for Chap Go Meh preparation.  I haven't decide whether to cook at home or dine at a fancy restaurant? A bit lazy to cook and yet don't know what to cook. But I reckon having dinner at any fancy restaurant will be super pack and expensive. Anyway, wait and see what will happen tomorrow :)

Nevertheless, I still love to share with you this Steamed Carrot and Radish cake. Actually this cake  is quite similar to my previous Steamed Savoury Pumpkin Cake but this time I added luncheon meat and surprisingly it taste more perfect and yummy. Hope you will like it as much as I do.

Have an enjoyable and joyful reunion on this coming sunday!!!

  1. Hi Esther. Thanks for visiting my blog and for leaving your comment. This is a very funny and yummy coincidence indeed! LOL I had no idea that radish cake is a special dish specifically for Chap Goh Meh!! I thought that it is a favourite for the first day of CNY, or for the CNY season in general. So, it's really serendipitous that I decided to post it for Chap Goh Meh :) Next time I make it, I must try with luncheon meat too, as my family loves it. Your radish cake loves very appetising!

  3. Hi Esther
    This steamed carrot and radish looks wonderful delicious. I have made radish cake but never had it with carrot together. I am sure this sounds more yummy. Have a wonderful Chap Goh Meh and hope you will have an enjoyable evening with your love ones.
