Chess Piece Sesame Seed Cake, Tangshan
It acquires this name since it looks as if a small drum and a chess piece. It is stuffed with meat, sugar, assorted vegetables, sausage, ham and others. The ingredients are mixed with lard and oil so as to make the cake crisper. The thoroughly baked cake has a wonderful golden color and a fragrant smelling. It’s crisp but not greasy, and easy to preserve.
