The cake is made from rice, with pork stuffing. Even though the recipe looks pretty easy, not everyone can make this wonderful cake.
The first step, and also the most important one that defines the quality of the cake, is to choose the right type of rice which is soft and sticky at the same time.
The rice is washed and soaked in water from two hours to half a day, before grinding it and making the dough. Then, start cutting the dough into small pieces and form the shape of each.
People who are used to making this dish usually do this step so easily, making 10 identical pieces at a time. When the kneading is done, the cakes are put in the steamer for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
The best way to savor Ear Cake is to eat it right away when it is still warm. Holding it in your hands and eat it slowly, you will find the taste of Ear Cake irresistible: it is soft, crunchy, buttery, and fragrant at the same time.
