New Year Cake
4 cups glutinous rice flour
1 and 1/3 cups brown sugar
1 Tablespoon lard or another solid shortening
1 cup vegetable oil
Golden Syrup for dipping or spreading on the diamond-shaped cake pieces

1. Sift the flour, then dissolve the brown sugar into one and a half cups boiling water, and slowly add the flour into this.
2. Grease an eight-inch cake pan with the shortening, and fill it with the flour-sugar-water mixture. In a steamer, steam this over boiling water for two and a half hours. Then remove it from the steamer and cool to room temperature. Then cover it and refrigerate overnight or for at least eight hours until it hardens, then cut into diamond-shaped pieces.
3. Heat a wok or fry pan, and add the vegetable oil and shallow-fry the cake pieces on each side until golden brown. Then serve hot, warm with the Golden Syrup for dipping; or spread some on their tops and serve.
