Bánh Tổ (for New Year)/ Sweet Yellow Chewy Cake for New Year


1 package of brown sugar in pieces (about 16 oz)
16 oz glutinous rice flour
pinch of salt
2 cup hot water (divided)
1 piece of ginger (about 2 inches)
sesame seeds - toast in smal oven 350' for about 5 minutes
8 pieces of dry chinese apple (tao' tau`)

1. Skinned ginger then cut into pieces put in the blender with 1 cup hot water, blend it then put through a strainer to get water only

2. put the other cup of water into a pan turn on heat add pieces of sugar until melted

3. In a bowl put glutinous rice flour, sugar water and ginger water together mix well (you can also use the blender (blendtec machine to mix it)

4. You can use any shape of cake pan you want, I use 8 round flan cup (blue one at home) spray oil then add mixture about 2/3 of bowl. Put a piece of chinese apple in the middle then sprinkles sesame on top

5. Use a steamer, steam for 1 hour in medium heat not high (remember to open the lid every 15 minutes , make sure water do not drop inside bowl, set an empty pan next to the steamer to drop water down, then close lid again ( this will make the cake wet, it will not look good or taste good)
