  • About

Bubble pudding or paopao you gao is a dessert made from flour, shortening or lard and sugar. The paopao you gao is steamed, then fried; in the process of frying, bubbles start to form on the surface of the dough, thus creating the ‘bubble’ effect. The crisp texture of the bubble pudding sweetly punctuates the rich, velvety sweet date soup in this tribute to northern Chinese desserts.
