Send a cake to the gospel to
White as a jade hole,
The rich and infused copper plate.
Cheng Ying Qing Xiang Guo Manzhen,
If it is a cover, it will bring the wind.
Clear pine and delicious wine,
The cake is soft and full.
Spicy but not a taste bud,
Sweet but not greasy.
Drunk and clear, clear and clear,
Huaishan prays for good fortune.
Set a little light,
Thick and thin, it shows TEDA.
Huaicheng Hair Cake is a "cutting cake" with local flavors. It is made from rice syrup mixed with fermented wine and steamed. The color is white as jade, the fragrance is soft, the food is sweet but not greasy, and it is not sticky. The hair cake fried in a frying pan has a rich aroma and a unique flavor. It is known as a "bowl of pizza".
There is an interesting legend about the origin of the cake. It is said that in the early Qing Dynasty and the early Ming Dynasty, a farmer’s daughter-in-law in Huaicheng accidentally poured a bowl of distiller's grains resting on the stove into the rice noodles. The little daughter-in-law is afraid of being scolded by her in-laws and dare not speak out. She has to mix the rice flour with the distiller's grains and put it in a steamer. Who knows that due to the fermentation of distiller's grains, this cake is steamed especially soft and delicious, and there is a slight scent of wine.
The hair cake is named after the word "fat", and the biggest feature is that it is fermented by the distiller's grains. The sound of the cake and the "Fugao" homonym gives us a kind of meaning that we can stick to the "blessing" when we eat the cake, so the locals are more fond of this kind of snack. The Qingming family's evaporating cakes to clear the ancestors are a long tradition.
