Perhaps this is unique to the Hokkien people as I haven't seen it anywhere else.........We have two types of new year cakes, one sweet, one savoury, I always look forward to eating the pan fried savoury cakes on the first day of Chinese Lunar calendar for breakfast.
This is how Big King's mother prepares the cake.
1. Arrange thin slices of cake on a pan.
2. Brown both sides and stir in a beaten egg.
3. Flip over when cake is set.
4. Transfer onto serving plate, I like to eat it smothered with Maggi sweet chilli sauce.
