Sugar Puffs

Betty made a dessert in the South Arm Community Kitchen. Betty had just learned how to make this Sugar Puffs from her friend a day earlier. Betty is a fast learner.

The Sugar Puffs remind me of the fennel cake that I had at the PNE. However, this Sugar Puffs is slightly chewier. I ate a lot of this while others were indulging in the Green Cabbage and Egg Dumplings; my sweet tooth.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of glutinous rice flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water

For coating:

  • 1/2 cup of peanut flour
  • 1/4 cup of icing sugar (if you cannot find peanut flour, you can just use icing flour alone)

Many hands made this job so much more fun. Some will make the wrappers while others make the dumplings.
