One of my best favor Vietnamese Food Recipes from childhood is Bánh Đúc with Coconut Milk and Grinded Pork (Bánh Đúc Nước Cốt Dừa với Thịt Xay). My mom usually cooks this dish for my breakfast meals. Its flavor is so amazing especially for me. Bánh Đúc does not have English Name. This cake is the best cakes in Middle Area, Vietnam. It made from non-glutinous rice flour or corn flour. It is white and has soft texture and milk flavor. You should eat it with Dipping Sauce. I bet you will totally fall in love with it. When you have a chance to visit Vietnam, make sure you will skip this stunning dish.
