My simplified take on the popular Chinese sweet treat known as 紫薯餅, or Purple Sweet Potato Cakes. They are crispy and toasty on the outside, soft and glutinous (or as we call it, “QQ”) on the inside —naturally sweet & irresistibly good.
I love these because they are not too sweet — you really get to show-case the natural sweetness of the sweet potato! These glutinous cakes are perfect for a quick & healthy breakfast. You can make them ahead of time and then re-heat in the oven.
