Imperial Cake of Emperor Qianlong (1735-1796)

(Cont’ from Jining Grand Canal Guide: Boat Tours page)

Qianlong (Ming Emperor) Cake aka “Nanyang Roasted Cake”. It is a local’s daily food.  No time to complete the fish banquet? Try a pack of roasted cakes to bring home. Do not forget to include a few duck eggs to complement the roast cakes.  

Locals often eat the roast cake with duck eggs. Nanyang roast cake is crispy outside and tender on the inside. Wrapped with sesame seeds, and layered with fennel pepper, the texture is very chewy.
