Begonia cake

Begonia cake is one of the snacks popular among the older generations in Shanghai. Bean paste is wrapped in flour dough and coated with slices of preserved fruits, sunflower seeds, sesame and barley sugar. The cake is baked in a mould shaped like a Begonia flower, giving the cake its name. It tastes sweet and soft and is best served hot. Because of its beautiful shape, it is as much of an enjoyment to eat the cake as it is to watch it cook.
