Hawaii style Li Hing Mui “Ice Cake”
According to NationalDayCalendar.com, today, June 1st is National Hazelnut Cake Day. Which by all means is a delicious cake worth celebrating. I LOVE Hazelnut!!
In light of that, as we now “officially” have Hawaii State Portuguese Sausage Manapua Day, The Tasty Island Honolulu Food Blog hereby proclaims today, June 1st, Hawaii State Ice Cake Day. Yay!
Which I bet lots of you old school local folks are thinking, “Dang, I never made or had Ice Cake in AGES!”
Remember that? Yup, Malolo syrup — my “Hanabaddah Dayz” fave’ was always Fruit Punch ‘n Orange — mixed with water and canned cream, while some folks also add Li Hing Mui, and/or odda’ kine stuffs, laddat. Freeze da’ buggah in paper cups until ice-hard, then pop ’em out and flip ’em ovah back into the cup and lick away.
Ice Cake is just as good as Shave Ice on a hot Hawaiian day! And perfect timing for this first day of June, just three weeks ahead of the official launch of Summer on June 21st.
