Last weekend, a friend asked me how I deal it without homefood living here. Food is the most important thing in her llife. She wondered how can I handle it since I've been away for so long. Well, here is I am doing, missing it, playing it, eating it and sharing it with you. Hope you enjoy playing with CatTuna so far!

This is a very traditional dish, we have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, New Year food. You can see it everywhere in Taiwan. For myself, my auntie makes the best radish cake, I always enjoy peeling the radishes for her, and excited for the delicious smell for the smoking bamboo steamers. If you are a Dimsum fan then you might know this dish "蘿蔔糕 Turnip cake".

I don't remember how many times I've done this dish, mostly I steamed it but today I want to share you baking it. It's also very tasty! Happy baking, BonappTreat!
