Red bean cake is a type of Cantonese cake with a sweet red bean paste filling.[1] It is made primarily with azuki beans.

Cantonese cuisine[edit]

Cantonese-style red bean cake is made with hardened red bean paste that has been frozen. The cake is sweetened and sprinkled with sesames. It is generally tough to bite, and is served as a square block. Depending on the particular region within China, this may be seen as a year-round snack, or as a seasonal pastry consumed on certain traditional Chinese holidays.
