This cake is one of my family's favorites. The chocolate cake has a very intense cocoa flavor and the creams have just the right amount of sweetness. Just delicious!

They are usually wrapped very nicely and packed in boxes as gifts. I suspect that the packaging costs more than the pastry :)
The recipe I used here is made with 100% pineapple filling (besides the sugar : )).

Kung Hey Fat Choi ! Good Wishes to all of You in the Year of Rabbit !!
There are many stories about the origin of this pastry. But whatever it was, the inventor was very creative. Like other kinds of traditional pastries, it is loaded with lard. I'm so glad that there are many versions nowadays that use other forms of oil/fat which produces comparable results.
Sweetened winter melon is the original filling for wife cakes. They are widely available now during Chinese New Year.
