Turnip Cake with XO Sauce

1 hr 30 mins



One of the most satisfying ways one can start your day is by sinking your teeth into that irresistible crunchy outer layer and soft chewiness. This all-time dim sum favourite has a savoury flavour.
Although the steamed version tastes great too, that slightly charred crisp crust is just too hard to resist. Customize this beloved breakfast favourite to your own liking. Proportion more strips of juicy turnip for a soft chewy texture and more flour if you prefer a more solid finish. Mix in Chinese sausages and minced shrimp to add little pockets of caramelized saltiness in every bite. Finish off your dish with the traditional pairing of XO sauce for a spicy flavour-booster to the savouriness of your turnip cake.
Best enjoyed steaming hot straight out from the pan, don’t be put off by the long cooking time. This humble white block of “cake” with browned exteriors, packed with flavours, a great way to satisfy your cravings and save costs while you savour on your own generously filled turnip cake.
