Lion Cake

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/4/24

Lion Cake is a traditional noted snack in Jianshui County. It’s said that it was ascribed to a man working in “the Rong Xiang Zhai”, whose family name was Wu. Because it looks like the hair on the lion’s neck, it gets the name of “Lion Cake”. It uses choice glutinous rice, rice-made maltose and a touch of sucrose as raw materials. Dip glutinous rice in the clear water for ten to fifiteen days first. Steam it then. Roll it into a ball. Press, shred and then dry it in air.  Fry it in the pan. After it cools off, wrap it with 80% maltose and 20% sucrose. Squash it. Cut it into pieces. It’s crisp, sweet and fragrant. It’s delicious.
