Spread from Shanxi Province, Zenggao (steam cake) is now a snack with Lingbao flavor. Zeng is an ancient cooker with small holes on the bottom and can be placed on a boiler to steam foods. It is said that the zeng originated in the end of the Primitive Society. Pottery zeng appeared in the New Stone age then developed into bronze ones in the Shang and Zhou Dynasties, and iron ones later. The best Zenggao is made with pottery Zeng.

Zenggao uses sticky rice, (traditionally produced in Wuxi city, Jiangsu province) and Chinese dates as raw materials, with a proportion of sticky rice of 10 kg and Chinese dates of 3 kg each time. Approaches of making Zenggao are quite demanding in skills. Looking pleasing in both form and color with a proper hardness and softness, it is tender, sweet and sticky, and is a good breakfast in winter and spring.
