Daikon radish cake is a pretty well known food in China, but I’ve never even remembered having it, haha. All I know is, it’s made from daikon radishes, is mostly white.

I am so freaking glad I got it, because it has just added so much spectrum of light in my life! Continue reading

This recipe was very inspired by the Crispy Baked Onion Rings on Oh She Glows. Continue reading
