Brief of Osmanthus Rice Cakes
Osmanthus Rice Cake is a Hangzhou-style dessert made out of glutinous rice powder, sugar and osmanthus sugar1. It’s a time-honored cake with various kinds which can satisfy people's different demands towards flavor. It’s usually square in shape, snow-white in color with tiny dried golden and brown osmanthus flowers embedded in it. With a strong scent of osmanthus it tastes sweet and is soft and smooth to touch.
Note: 1. Osmanthus sugar is made by squeezing out the juice of osmanthus flowers, which is then preserved in sugar.
