Water Chestnut Cake is one of my favorite Chinese desserts。 This recipe was taught by my grand aunty in LA two years ago, and the proportion is a bit vague. I try to remember her instructions and made this to see if it is accurate。 Fortunately, it was a success，chewy and not too sweet，just the way I like it。 Even my hubby and colleagues liked the texture and the taste。
For your information， I measured the amount of rice bowl that I used， it is about 270ml in each rice bowl。 So it is pretty much same as one cup plus a bit, so for all of you who want to try, good luck and let me know how it turns out !
