Asian Pear Cakes
Ingredients:
1 Asian pear, peeled and cored
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup sweet potato or potato flour
3 Tablespoons red bean paste
2 cups vegetable oil
6 Tablespoons sugar
6 goji berries
Preparation:
1. Chop pear and mix with beaten egg and the flour. Divide this pear dough into six parts.
2. Divide bean paste into six parts. Wrap each part with the pear dough and flatten it into a cake shape.
3. Heat oil in a wok or pot and deep fry half the cakes until golden, then remove and drain on paper towels, and repeat with the other half of the pear cakes. Next, put the fried pear cakes in a single layer into a heat-proof bowl.
4. Mix sugar with one-quarter cup of boiling water, and pour this over the pear cakes. Put one goji berry in the center of each pear cake. Steam them over boiling water for six minutes, remove, and serve.
