Vietnamese Sticky Rice Cakes (Banh Chung)Vietnamese Banh Chung is called sticky rice cake. This delicious cake has only a few key ingredients, but the cooking process is time-consuming. Some would rather purchase a cake over making it from scratch. Sticky Rice Cake is a tradition that is made and sold during Chinese New Year, but you can make it at home year-round. You will typically eat sticky rice cake with sugar on the side. If the cake is no longer fresh, it would be best to pan fry the cake and serve with sugar on the side.
