Lunjiao cake is a traditional Chinese pastry made with fermented sugar, and the popular dessert is founded by Huanjie Lunjiao Cake shop, currently run by Liang Guifen.
From Shunde in Guangdong, China, Liang is the fourth generation successor of the 163-year-old shop.
In sharing the process behind her baking process, she remarked that the pastry is difficult to make.
“We start washing and soaking rice into water, from the afternoon to 2 a.m. the next morning,” she began.
“Then we need to grind the rice, add sugar and yeast, and wait for another 24 hours for it to ferment. After steaming the cake, we need to make sure it cools down; that way, it will taste much better,” Liang said.
She has also experimented with new products in recent years, such as Cantonese sponge cake, osmanthus cake, red bean cake, and almond cake.
She added that the pastries are all nutritious and healthy.
Liang explained that like her mother, she likes eating cakes very much. As a child, she also enjoyed learning how to make the cake with her father and grandfather.
With four siblings, she admitted that no one except her wanted to take over the family business as making pastries was not as profitable then.
She recalled the moment she took over the family business asking her dad to trust her.
“I will do it better than you,” Liang recalled her reassurance to her father.
As her business gained fame, Liang noticed that many tourists from Hong Kong, Macau, Shanghai, and Beijing came to buy her pastries.
Now the owner of one of the most popular desserts in Guangdong, Liang said she always feel grateful when customers tell her they came far away just to try her pastries.
Liang’s business continues to expand and currently has four branches, three factories, and six distributors in China.
