Sweet Peanut Cream Dessert 花生糊

I believe you must have tasted this Sweet Peanut Cream Dessert Soup 花生糊 in the Chinese restaurant after your meal.  Some of you might have thought that this is a troublesome to make at home because you have to dry fry the peanuts, then have to remove the skin, thereafter blend to puree only to cook it.  All this steps have to take a little time.

But today, this Sweet Peanut Cream Dessert is made in a jiffy without much hassle and it taste so yummy and delicious.   

I urge you to give this a try too and hopefully you will agree with me this dessert is super yummy.

Sweet Peanut Cream Dessert Soup 花生糊
Serves about 6 rice bowls

6 tbsp sweet peanut butter
6 red dates
6 cups water
8 tbsp sugar
5 tbsp cornstarch paste

1.  Mix the 6 tbsp peanut butter with 1/2 cup of water in a bowl until well mixed.  Then
     add an additional 1/2 cup of water.  Mix well.  Repeat this procedure until the 2 cups
     of water have been used up.

2.  Put the other 4 cups of water and 8 tbsp sugar into a pot.  Bring it to a boil.  Then add
     the peanut butter paste; mix thoroughly until it boils again.  Thicken it with cornstarch
     paste.  Pour it to a large serving bowl.

3.  Soak the red dates in warm water for about an hour.  Remove the seeds and dice the 
     pulp finely.  Then sprinkle over the peanut cream soup and serve. 

      This dessert soup tastes much better if you want to add additional 3 tbsp fresh cream or 
      condensed milk before adding the dates; for more creamier taste.

  1. very good desserts....and it easy to make too....

  2. Hi Mel, I love this. Thank you for sharing the simple recipe.

    Have a nice weekend.

  3. This looks so good! And I have all the ingredients on hand! Yay!

  4. I gotta give this a try. As you said, I never made this dessert at home because of the lengthy process. Yours is so simple to make I have no excuse not to give this a try. :) Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.

  5. OMG, I love the dessert soup Chinese restaurants give at the end of meal. Not all restaurants do that, so I like the one they do... :-) My favorite is red bean (no doubt!) and taro, but this peanut one sounds good! I don't think I've tried this one... but I also tried green bean soup too. Thank you so much for sharing this! Now I can make it at home... =D

  6. This is one of my favorite "tong sui" but I have never seen it with red dates. Me - "Lau how sui" I have so much peanut butter at hand. I must try this soon.

  7. Hi, visiting through Aspiring Bakers. This seems easy, just using peanut butter is a good idea.
