  1. I think this is the best method I’ve seen on YouTube. I usually dump rice
    flour mixture into turnip that’s cooking in a wok but it gets hard to mix.

    1. Jack Donegan Yup, there’s actually a lot of these “steamed” cakes in
      Chinese cooking. If you’re interested, I did a steamed white sugar cake
      earlier last yr. (pretty popular in Chinese bakeries)
