Mung Bean Cake

Mung bean cake (dvougao) is an authentic Chinese dessert eaten during the summer.

It’s made with – as you may have guessed – mung beans. It’s also filled with a sweet paste like many of these Chinese desserts. 

Though they look like moon cakes (and are made in moon cake molds), they’re a little different.

Moon cakes feature a thin layer of pastry, and they’re baked. Mung bean cakes are enjoyed right away, with no baking required.
